How to Customize Your Favorite Jeans with Rhinestones and Beads

Your favorite pair of jeans is comfortable and worn enough to be form-fitting and fashionable. But, they are a pair of blue jeans like any other. You want them to be stylish and show off your personality, so customization is way to go. If bling is your thing, then you will love this project.

With rhinestones and beads, you can make your jeans into treasured designer apparel with you as the designer. At Fabric Barn Inc., our team has assembled some pointers to help guide you through your project.

Your first step is to choose the rhinestones or beads you are going to use. They come in a range of sizes, shapes, and colors, so take the time to find ones that work best for you.

Once you’ve chosen your materials, make sure you have a pattern to follow. You can likely find one online or at a craft shop or create your own, but it’s always a good idea to have a plan rather than approach this project haphazardly.

Make sure you have the items you need so once you begin the project you don’t have to stop to gather additional materials.

Rhinestones have adhesive on the back that makes them easy to affix, or you may need a hot gun to activate the glue. If you are going to practice bead embroidery make sure you have the needles and thread you require.

Take your time and enjoy the process as your jeans go from traditional to trendy.
