This is a super-easy and super-quick fashion DIY which will add a touch of glamour to a plain top or tee. My beloved pearl effect necklace broke and , rather than fixing it, I thought of something much more exciting to do with the loose pearls.
YOU WILL NEED
A top, t-shirt or blouse
Super Glue/Strong Fabric Glue
Place pearls in the desired position on the top. If you're going for a symmetrical pattern use a ruler to line up the pearls. I used the design of my top as a guide choosing to place the pearls in the top section.
Once satisfied with your design pencil mark underneath each pearl this will help you to keep the position of the pearls as they tend to roll, even when on a flat surface.
Remove pearls and place cardboard in between front and back of top so that the super glue doesn't stick both sides together.
Super glue pearls down, placing them on the pencil marks as you go.
Leave to dry. Ta dah pretty pearl embellishment!
