DIY Rhinestone Chambray Shirt

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.
