DIY bridal accessories are all the rage – and they’re super easy to make when you use Swarovski rhinestones. Read on to learn about the top DIY bridal accessories and how you can make them yourself using loose rhinestones.
Rhinestone Bridal Jewelry
Of course, the first thing you think of when you hear the word rhinestones is jewelry. And bridal jewelry is no exception. You can easily make your own bridal brooch to go on your dress using hot fix rhinestones and a pin backing.
Or make a cute bracelet or necklace to match your dress using rhinestones and lace or ribbon. Most DIY bridal accessories feature clear Swarovski rhinestones, but you could also use aquamarine stones as part of your “something blue” or use the colors of your wedding theme.
Rhinestone Bridal Hair Accessories
Rhinestone bridal hair accessories, including headbands, bridal combs, veils, barrettes, and tiaras, are especially popular as they’re so easy to make. Just purchase the plain item you wish to decorate and go to town on it with rhinestones!
Because most hair accessories are hard surfaces, they’re very simple to decorate. As for the veil, you could decorate just the part that attaches into your hair, or put rhinestones spaced out on the actual veil so that it sparkles and shines as you move your head.
Rhinestone Bridal Shoes
There are two ways you can go about decorating your shoes: the tops or the bottoms – or three ways if you decorate both. Many women choose to affix rhinestones to the tops of their high heels for some extra shimmer as they walk.
Or for some more subtle shine, simply glue to the rhinestones to the soles of your high heels (just not the part that makes contact with the ground – you don’t want to fall on your wedding day!). If you’re not a high heel kind of girl, rhinestones are a great way to glam up the shoes you will be wearing. We’ve even seen wedding sneakers and flip-flop sandals decorated with rhinestones!
Other Rhinestone Bridal Accessories
There are many other bridal accessories you can decorate yourself. Consider decorating your bridal sash for some extra bling on your wedding gown. Or decorate your garter for a surprise when your groom takes it off your leg and throws it to your single male guests. Last but not least, what about adding some sparkle to your wedding bouquet with a rhinestone pin that attaches to the stems of the flowers?
You can never go wrong with DIY bridal accessories when it comes to using rhinestones. Just get Swarovski rhinestones in the color of your choosing and let your imagination go wild!
