A Jar Full of Rhinestones

A jar full of rhinestones…does it get any better than that!?!

Star Sun Catchers

My first project is these cute little stars. They will be going in the window to catch the sunlight ūüôā

1. Start with cardboard shapes. These are from Hobby Lobby.

2.¬†Paint with gold craft paint, or whatever color you like, and allow to dry. Craft paint doesn’t take long to dry to the touch.

3. Attach acrylic rhinestones. I used E-6000 glue for making these stars. It melts the silver backing on the rhinestones and gives them an added shimmer. A hot-glue gun also works well.

Treasure Boxes

My next project is little treasure boxes. They are a fun way to store all kinds of little goodies.

2.¬†Paint with gold, silver, black craft paint or whatever color you like, and allow to dry. Craft paint doesn’t take long to dry to the touch.

3. Attach acrylic rhinestones. This time I used my trusty hot-glue gun.

If you have more ideas to make use of my jar of rhinestones, please share it with me. You just might see it on the blog soon!

Happy Crafting!!!
