How to add Swarovski Crystals

How to add Swarovski Crystals to Nike’s

Looking for a new workout gear idea? Needing a little bling added to your life?

In this YouTube Video we will teach you How to add Swarovski Crystals to Nike’s! A step by step tutorial with all the details we could think of that you might need or use! We chose to use some larger crystals to save on some money and time yet still make them sparkle!

Items Needed:

  • Nike’s
  • Foot file or sand paper (Something to rough up the swoosh with)
  • Rubbing Alcohol (to clean swoosh) – we used a paper towel to do this
  • Birthday candle (To apply crystals)
  • E6000 Glue
  • Syringe – We used a blunt tip 18 Gauge Syringe you can purchase here at Colorado Crystals
  • Swarovski Crystals – we used a variety of sizes in crystal clear such as these  Crystal 12ss for the main size and a few of these; ss9, ss7, ss5, ss16 to use in the smaller sections of the swoosh
  • Soft white cloth – to clean at the end
  • Paper towel – used to keep syringe clean and to wipe rubbing alcohol off

We sure hope you find this tutorial on How to add Swarovski Crystals to Nike’s helpful! 

Happy Crystaling!

Colorado black & silver hat Bling Swarovski

Colorado black & silver hat Bling Swarovski
Colorado Hat in Black and Silver Swarovski Rhinestones! Bling hat that stands out from the rest!

Colorado black & silver hat Bling Swarovski a unique find! This hat has Swarovski Rhinestones in the colors Jet Hematite, Silver Night and Crystal. We used sizes 12, 16 and a few 20’s in non hot fix 2088 XIRIUS ROSE flatbacks.

If you are looking to make your own Colorado black & silver hat Bling Swarovski unique hat here are some suggestions we have for you!

  • Wash your hat prior to applying the rhinestones! (We just tossed ours in a delicate wash and dried for a moment in dryer then set out on dryer to finishing drying) This will help remove any oils that is left on the embroider or stitching left on the logo of the hat.
  • Lay out the stones first to make sure you have enough crystals and to help navigate where will apply the correct sizes.
  • Glue suggestions:
    • If you are one that washes your hat often we recommend GemTac white glue as it is a permanent washable glue. If you don’t wash them that often then use e6000. PLEASE keep in mind that e6000 is no longer a permanent washable glue. It is permanent water resistant only. After multiple washes the glue will loosen up. GemTac takes longer to dry and doesn’t hold up as great however long term it does. Where e6000 will hold tight but if wanting it for years and washable it will loose its hold over time.
    • Last we use a syringe in size 16g (For sizes 12s and up) or 18g (for size 12s and down) E6000 only a few drops at a time GemTac we do more and let sit slightly and sometimes top off if needed.
  • Applying the Rhinestones we use a birthday candle! Yes, thats right the flat part or the bottom of a birthday candle! Why? A number of reasons!

A. Wax won’t ruin the crystals! – Simply wipe off after completely dry

B. CHEAP and can purchase anywhere! – We recommend ones that don’t have the stripe around then and ones that are a little thicker in wax.

C. Small enough to see if you have a slight ring around the stone of glue! AND works perfect for ALL sizes of Rhinestones!

We hope you like our Colorado black & silver hat Bling Swarovski for a fresh new idea! Want one? Contact Us we would love to make one for you!

Havaianas Flip Flops with Swarovski Crystals added for summer fun

Havaianas Flip Flops with Swarovski Crystals added for summer fun! Recently we visited Vegas for a much needed vacation and were looking for some summer fun! We found some black Havaianas and added some Swarovski flat back rhinestones to them!

At first this seemed like an easy DIY then we struggled for a bit and in the end found that it is a great summer project for anyone to try! WE ended up using a super glue called Loctite Super Glue (Gel version). It took us sometime to get the hang of it, so we recommend practicing before doing a full pair for a gift! We were thankful these were for a trying out job!

Some tips we found….

A. when scrapping off the logo and the ridges use both an Xacto knife and a piece of sandpaper. (We tried only the knife and some stones never did lay flat)

B. roll up a sock or anything similar so that the straps will lay flat, snug and remain in place while working.

C. Lay out a few stones at a time before gluing them down. (There are times that you have to leave a little space so that the pattern can continue the same.)

D. Even though the solid look is amazing to look at it is harder to keep them nice and perfectly aligned. We would recommend leaving a very tiny space in-between the stones.

WE have to say though…Havaianas Flip Flops with Swarovski Crystals added for summer fun; have held up amazingly! We actually even accidentally left them in the hot sun in Vegas for a few hours! OOPS! (WE DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS! HAHA!) And we still haven’t lost one!

These ended up using almost 2.5 gross of the Crystal Shimmer in size ss12 and 1gr of Jet Hematite in size ss12. We didn’t quite finish one bottle of glue off either! WE used a candle to attach them and a skewer to straighten them out when needed!

Happy blinging and Contact Us for any other questions or projects you would like us to share about! Happy to help in any of your Swarovski Rhinestone Needs!

Thank you

Tryout/Audition outfit: where to add Crystals

Tryout/audition outfit: where to add crystals

Suggestions on where to add crystals to the Audition/Tryout outfit!

Getting ready for the big tryout day can be stressful; yet fun all at the same time! Here we will try and answer a few question we get asked a lot! After purchasing a tryout/audition outfit: where to add crystals so it feels right? Picking out the outfit is hard enough so don’t let adding stones to it worry you!
Here are some of our suggestions!
One of the most important things to do is make sure you are yourself! As much as you need to blend in with the team needs you will want your judges to remember you! That means we completely understand the need to stand out from all the rest of the competitors. With so many talented girls out there it is important you feel your best! When trying to figure out what to wear for your tryout/audition outfit: where to add the crystals; you will want to make sure it shows off your strengths and not what everyone else is wearing.
Let me try to explain this a little better: Some girls are very outgoing so adding a lot of bling is perfect for them! They might choose contrasting colors from the outfit, add larger stones and use anywhere from 3 gross to 10 gross! Then others are not as much and so maybe their strength is their flexibility, strong arms or an amazing back! If that’s the case you would want to add some crystals to the area that will accent your best features. Maybe smaller crystals that blend with the color of the material around the legs, arms or on the back of the outfit. These girls maybe would use more like 2 gross to 4 gross in total rhinestones.
However always remember; what is the first thing someone looks at when looking at other people no matter what the situation? Their face and SMILE not their toes so make sure you smile with all the confidence in the world! Another suggestion could be to add some crystals in your style to an area that will accent you smile! Maybe it’s a simple headband or on one strap, whatever it is make sure it is your personality! Try this one:Flower Headband
In this photo of a rhinestoned tryout/audition outfit: where to add crystals we used a little under 2.5 gross. It was made for someone trying out for an NFL team. We used 2 colors (Crystal Moonlight and Sun AB) in mostly 2 different sizes (16ss & 20ss). An additional third size in the center piece; 12ss to fill in the tiny spaces. Always remember to wash the area prior to adding the crystals. Read instructions on outfit first! Usually you can hand wash in cool water with a delicate liquid soap. We do not wash our items with OXI CLEAN or Fabric Softners as it can take away the glues or added sparkles in materials. Most also suggest to hang dry items.
We hope this helps answer a little on tryout/audition outfit: where to add crystals!

Sorority Water Bottle with Swarovski Crystals

Sorority water bottle with Swarovski Crystals

Gift Idea? How about a Sorority water bottle with Swarovski Crystals on it! This beautiful water bottle was made for a “big sis” for a sorority in Arizona. Making gifts can make a bond even closer because it has your personal touch to it.
All you need for this project are:
1. Water bottle – we recommend using one that doesn’t sweat
2. Swarovski Crystals – Flat Back non hot fix. (check out our Store for many options)
3. Epoxy Glue – that dries clear and has a heat resistant bond (So they can be washed in a dish washer for ease!)
4. Permanent Marker
5. Rubbing Alcohol
6. Dry erase marker – Just in case you make a mistake!

First we suggest you wash the water bottle. Then once dry wipe the area you are applying the stones with rubbing alcohol. (It helps take off any dirt or oils left on the bottle) Then draw out your logo or design using your permanent marker. Don’t worry if you make a mistake drawing it out! That’s what the dry erase marker is for! Did you know you can wipe off your permanent marker if you first go over it with a dry erase marker? YUP! It works wonders! Let it dry and wipe it off! However don’t forget to wipe clean again with rubbing alcohol! Once design is set, apply epoxy and stones and let dry and set for a good 12-24 hours!

We hope you have fun making your sorority water bottle with Swarovski Crystals!!!

**Note we recommend hand washing the water bottles, BUT just in case your “big Sis” throws her Sorority water bottle with Swarovski crystals in the dish washer she should be ok!
