HonestlyWTF has some of the best and creative DIY goodies and you’re sure to love their latest offering. Beanie’s are a must during the winter months but lately they’ve gone through such a transformation with bright neon colours to over the top embellishments. Here is a perfect way of updating your beanie

You’ll need:
*a ribbed boyfriend beanie
*sew on crystals
*flat back crystals
*a 2″ x 8″ piece of muslin
*needle & thread

Start ironing out the strip of muslin to rid of any wrinkles or creases. Then squeeze a large dollop of E6000 onto a disposable spoon or surface. Using a toothpick, apply a small amount of glue on the back of the largest flatback crystal

Place the crystal in the center of the muslin. Continue applying the larger stones, working outwards from the center and making each side symmetrical. Even though some of the larger stones used were sew-on crystals, still glued them on for that extra hold.

Finish laying out the pattern. Using a sharp object might help nudge the smaller crystals into place. Allow the crystals to dry completely.

Then, using a needle and thread, secure the larger pieces by sewing them directly onto the muslin. Remember to double knot in the back. Then cut around the pattern, leaving approximately 1-2mm of space.

Dab drops of glue to the backside. To prevent glue from seeping and showing through, apply glue only on the backside of the crystals. Carefully place the strip of crystals onto the beanie and allow to dry completely.

To secure it to the beanie, sew a few hidden stitches along the outer edges of the stones.

That’s it!

Your new beanie is now Ready to Wear
