DIY Jewel Embellished Skirt 1

If you are like me and haven’t even thought about what you’ll be wearing for new year’s eve celebrations, this is the perfect last minute DIY for you. It’s quick, inexpensive and the final result is all the sparkles you need to ring in 2013. If you have been following me on Pinterest, you know that I’ve  been really inspired by jeweled skirts lately. With everything embellished (esp. sweaters) being so big this season, an embellished skirt would be a perfect addition.

DIY Jewel Embellished Skirt Inspiration 2

Let’s get started. Here’s what you’ll need:

  • A skirt (I picked a short fitted black one)
  • Flat-back acrylic jewels (I got a packet of Bead Landing ™ Acrylic Jewels from Michael’s)
  • Aleene’s Jewel-It Embellishing Glue

Step 1: Layout your skirt on a flat surface and get rid of any major creases or wrinkles. Keep the front of the skirt facing up.

Step 2: Start arranging the round jewels on the skirt following the pattern shown in the picture. Begin from the top or the bottom of the skirt. You might need more/less jewel in each row depending on the size of your skirt.

Step 3: Place the square jewels around the round ones. Of course, you can switch up the pattern if you have another design in mind.

Step 4: Once you finish arranging the jewels on the skirt according to the design, pick a jewel and add a drop or two of glue on the back of the jewel.

Step 5: Let the glue sit on the jewel for a few minutes and then place it back carefully in it’s place on the skirt. Press it down slightly. To avoid gluing the front of the skirt with the back, I put a layer of magazine inside the skirt. If you prefer sewing the jewels on, they come in sew on (with holes) form as well.

Once you are done gluing all the jewels, let it dry for a few hours. Then you have your bedazzled skirt ready for your new year’s eve party or any other occasion!

You can style this embellished skirt with a simple top to dress it down or if you like to dress it up, add bold necklaces to the simple top or pick a top with playful prints.

I really hope you enjoyed this quick DIY! Have a fabulous new year’s eve and a very happy new year! Thank you all so much for the love and support so far in 2012, it means a lot! I know that we will have another great year being more HIGH on DIY!
