You’re a gal on the go. You don’t have time to bake from scratch or clean your apartment (just me?), let alone read a super-long blog post. For those of you in a hurry, I have a quick post and project: the DIY rhinestone chambray shirt. Looking for a craft you can complete, start to finish, in less time than it takes to watch a movie? Scroll down a bit and get to work.
This affordable, and incredibly easy, project helps bump up the dazzle of your basic chambray button-down. Extra perk: It only took about an hour, and I’m a slow sewer who is easily distracted and was also watching television. It might only take you 15 minutes.
- 1 inexpensive chambray shirt
- 12 sew-on rhinestones
- Needle and thread
You’re smart; you probably don’t need directions for this at all. But, in case you’re like me and it takes FOREVER to decide on stone placement, here’s what I did: Place the stones in small clusters near the shoulders and sew in place. Be sure to double-knot everything. If you have a few left over, pop off the pocket buttons and replace them with stones. Ta-da!
