DIY: Add a faux necklace to revive an old sweater
Jewels on sweaters are trending hard right now. Everywhere you look, there is some kind of embellishment draped gracefully across a neckline. It's the perfect time to get crafty and make your own unique design inspired by all of these glamorous pieces!
- Plain sweater
- Sew-on crystals or rhinestones
- Fabric glue
- Needle and thread
Do a little research about what kind of pattern and type/colors of crystals you want. Play with shapes and patterns to create a beautiful neckline that resembles a necklace. Purchase your supplies in-store or online and then get ready for the fun part!
Arrange and glue
Once you have all of your supplies, lay your sweater on a flat surface and place the jewels around the neckline. The great part is, if you don't like the design you originally planned, you can rearrange the jewels until you're satisfied. After you're sure where you want them to go, pick up one jewel and squeeze some glue onto it, then place back down on the sweater in the correct spot. Repeat this step for all the jewels.
Once the jewels are dry, take your needle and thread and sew down each jewel. Now it's ready to wear!
