DIY pearl collar

DIY pearl collar

This is such an easy and fast DIY project that adds a lot of personality w/out looking like you're trying too hard. I actually seen a dupe top in white at H&M for $50 which in my opinion is a lil too much so i thought "Why not DIY!". I placed all the things that would be needed below, enjoy!

You will need:
  1. Top (mines was purchased at H&M for $9.95)
  2. Flat back pearls (purchased from Ebay for $1.95)
  3. Jewel-it fabric glue (purchased from Joann's craft store)
  4. Toothpicks 
  5. Disposable plate or any surface to place glue
Steps
  • Pour a good amount of glue on the plate and unbutton the blouse placing the inside of the collar outward.
  • Take the toothpick and dab it into the glue placing the glue on the flat end of the pearl. Remember not to add to much glue being that when you're pressing down the pearl on the collar it will spread (we don't want a messy shirt, now do we?)
  • Press the pearl onto the collar. Start by spreading them with at least a half of an inch apart until the collar is done then start filling in the gaps as you wish
  • Once you have them right where you want them put the shirt somewhere safe in the same position it was in while you were putting on the pearls. Let it dry for about 24 hours and VOILA !
