Terri O crafts: Bling out your favorite jeans

Who doesn't love a little bling to your jeans? But sometimes the added jewels can cost a pretty penny.

Here's a way to add your own to your favorite pair.

Supplies:
Hot Fix heating tool
Hot Fix studs or stones
OR
Iron-On bling that comes in predesigned in packages
Iron
OR
Lace with bling
Coffee if you want to dye it
Fabric glue

There are several ways to bling your jeans. One way that requires little investment is to glue lace to your jeans. You can buy it in many colors.

I actually used the embellishments that they use for wedding dresses. They already have bling. What I personally did not like was how white they are. So I coffee stained mine to give them more of a vintage look.

Just soak them in dark coffee for a couple of hours. Let them dry and iron them flat. Then just glue them to your favorite jeans with fabric glue.

Iron-on bling is also very easy. All you need is an iron and follow manufactures instructions. One tip, prewash your garment without using fabric softener. Once you add your bling if possible iron the back side where the bling is to make sure they are secure.

Hot fix is the most expensive way to bling. You have to have the tool along with the rhinestones and studs. The better bling can be pricey but they are very pretty.

Also the tool itself takes a little practice but once you get the hang of it you will love the results.

Wash your garment inside out and do not put in the dryer. The heat from the dryer may dislodge the bling.
