DIY to Try: Jeweled Beanie

DSC_1641_edited4I’ve had this little project planned for months. But before I knew it, it was March and I figured it was too late to talk about beanies. Then it snowed and I remembered that winter is stubborn and won’t go away just yet.

I’ve had my eye on jeweled beanies all season (love this one), and wanted to try designing my own version — because why not? The project was pretty simple overall, and requires just a bit of time (hand stitching takes patience and serious finger strength). Scroll below to see how you can make your own in a few easy steps!

Full disclosure: I’m currently writing this post in Florida wearing shorts and a tank top. But don’t worry, the beanie will be in full force when I get back to Ohio. 

Supplies needed:

suppliesBeanie | Gemstones | Needle & Thread | E6000 Adhesive

Step 1: Arrange gemstones on the beanie. I’d recommend taking a picture of the design with your phone or camera to use as a reference.
