Rhinestone Introduction

For those of you who love rhinestones on clothing and/or just about anything and everything,

 this hub is for you. I don.apos;t know about you, but I sometimes get a little agitated when I see 

how expensive it can be for something with rhinestones on it. I have seen hoodies, belts and 

jeans cost a mini fortune. Of course, most of the cost goes to the crystals if they are Swarovski

 and the labor, especially if there are a lot of rhinestones to glue on. However, the mark up can

 be a little ridiculous. Swarovski rhinestones are the best in my opinion. They come in too many

 colors to count and in various cuts and sizes. They also sparkle and shine the best. If you want

 something to stand out, definitely go with the Swarovski.



Iron on Rhinestones

Ironing on rhinestones is the easiest and fastest way to make your clothes and accessories 

sparkle. You can find single rhinestones and crystals that are iron on to get the look you want. 

There is also my favorite, iron on rhinestone transfer which could be words, numbers, symbols

 and other fabulous designs. You can find pretty much any design of rhinestone transfer you 

want already assembled for you and ready to iron on. Below is my step by step guide to easily

 transform your t-shirt, hoodie, belt, or even purse from bland to glam.




Step 1

 If you are going to use a new item of clothing or fabric to iron on a transfer, always make sure

 to first wash the item so that there is no future shrinkage or color fading after the rhinestones

 are in place. I am using a purple hoodie sweatshirt.


Step 2

Pick out your iron on rhinestone motif and then decide where you would like to place that motif. 

I chose to place mine at the top right front of the sweatshirt. Make sure you are happy with 

where you want it placed, once it’s ironed on, there is no turning back.




Step 3

Take the white backing off of the iron on rhinestone transfer and place it sticky side down on

 your garment or fabric. Make sure it is on there smooth and that it is not moving around. You

 want it to iron on exactly where you want it.




Step 4

Now we are ready for ironing. Make sure that before you plug in your iron, there is no water in it. 

You don’t want to use water or steam when ironing on transfers. Next, you will want to find 

something to place over the rhinestone transfer while ironing. You can use a piece of cotton, 

fabric or maybe an old t-shirt. You don’t want to use anything heavy and you don’t want to use

 anything that will ruin your iron, so cotton would be perfect.



Step 5

Make sure the iron is on a medium setting and remember to make sure that the steam setting

 is off. Place the iron on top of your cotton piece that is on top of the transfer and press down

 for 30 seconds. Turn your item to the other side and hold the iron down on that side for about

 20 seconds. Then turn your item back to the right side and place the iron on it for another 20

 seconds. Let it cool for a few minutes. After a few minutes, it’s time to make sure that all of the

 rhinestones have been set on your item.




Step 6

Slowly and carefully start pealing the plastic cover off of your item. You want to make sure that

 all of the rhinestones have set into your item. There might be a few stragglers, as soon as you

 see one or more rhinestones that have not stuck, carefully place the plastic cover back down

 on your item and place the pillowcase back over it and hold down your iron over it for another

 20-30 seconds. Let cool another minute or two, and then try to slowly and carefully peel the

 plastic cover off again until all the rhinestones are attached to your garment or fabric. That is

 the last and final step. Make sure you let your item fully cool before you wear it, 10 minutes 

or so. Also wait at least 24 hours before washing again if you need to. I suggest that the next

 time you do wash your garment or fabric, use the gentle cycle so that there is more of a 

chance of the rhinestones not falling off. Also hang dry. The rhinestones will sometimes fall off 

with use and washing, however if you take care of it, they will last longer.
