This super cute DIY is perfect for adding something extra special to a standard shirt. There's plenty of room to get experimental with your embellishments so, once you've got the hang of it, go crazy with your collars!
YOU WILL NEED
-A glue gun, or epoxy glue
-Miniature flowers and rhinestones, or any other embellishment you want.
-Earring posts and studs
Organise your embellishments/beads in way you like, and use your glue gun to firmly fix them together.
Make sure the back is glued securely.
Then use the glue gun, or epoxy glue, to attach the earring posts to the base.
Cut yourself a small piece of wire and cut in half
Then fold two small pieces in half to create hooks.
Loop your hooks through the end of your chain.
Alternately you can create hoops instead, there are harder to create but easier to secure to your collar posts.
Secure your chain to your embellishment by slipping your loop through the earring post and securing with your glue gun.
Secure these through your shirt collar in line with each side and they are ready to wear. The great thing about this DIY is that they can be attached to any shirt you like.
