A week seems quite long to be missing from the scene.I had my hands occupied. No actually fully taken, my only refuge was my Instagram account. You won’t believe it I gave one of my exams just one and a half hour before leaving for airport. Yes crazy right. That same morning, one of my DIY projects failed, I will try again nonetheless once I get back home. For now I have a sew on crystal brooch up for this week.
Long before making the sew on tassel earrings I thought of making a brooch. Luckily I had some pearls left over from my previous project so I could use it for completing the first design with some matching rhinestones. I just made another with a pom pom because two is better than one right?
♥ E6000 Glue
♥ Pom Poms (small)
♥ Glue Gun
♥ Brooch Clips
Firstly you will need to align your crystals and rhinestones or what have you to design a shape that you desire. Then cut off a square piece of felt and glue over it your embellishments with a strong adhesive like E6000 glue. Let it dry for 15 minutes or so meanwhile we will warm up our glue gun. Now cut off the excess felt of the edges. The piece on hand is floppy so to give it a body we will cut a small circle from the left over felt and glue it down with our hot glue. Lastly, we will apply some glue onto the center of our unfinished piece and then push the brooch clip against it. To give it a stronger foot we will apply some more of hot glue this time over the brooch clip.
Brooch making was fun. You just need to let your imagination run wild and create a masterpiece. Choose your own embellishments and create your own or go by what I have designed. The door of creativity is wide open. I don’t think I will stop here, next time I will create some more brooches with some other materials.
If you make one, don’t forget to share it with me by tagging me #egdiys #enthrallinggumption
