DIY | Rhinestone Stockings

I’m terrible when it comes to keeping up with trends as soon as they happen but I decided I’d still write a blog post about this DIY.

The originals (that I could find) were created by Dbleudazzled and let me tell you, they are GORGEOUS! The closest ones I could find to what Kylie was wearing is ‘Constellation’ and they sell for $125! Unfortunately, they’ve been discontinued too! ūüė¶

So I did some investigating (literally just looked at the description of the item) and realised I can definitely do these myself!

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • A pair of fishnets, get whatever style you want! I used just a small, plain size!
  • Glue! (E6000 is what I’d recommend, superglue burns through stuff!)
  • Crystals! I used 2 different sizes of Swarovski¬†AB but any little shinies will work!
  • A dotting tool
  • Wax rhinestone¬†picker (find my¬†easy DIY here)
  • Something to put your glue & crystals on!

Step One – Preparation

Before anything, make sure you’ve got something you can put a small amount of glue on to make the process the tiniest bit quicker. While you’re at it, apply the crystals to an object and also put those tights/stockings on also!

Step two – Application

With a dotting tool, apply a small amount of glue to the area you’re going to apply the rhinestones. I recommend spacing them out from wherever the most of your shorts/dresses cut off and then down to slightly the ankle (Photo will explain better).

This is going to take one hell of a long time, but just apply the different size rhinestones in different areas on anywhere there’s a little ‘X’.

Let them completely dry (although by the end of¬†it they will be) and that’s it! you’re done!

Get out there and strut your stuff like the sparkly princess (or prince, ain’t no judging here) that you are!
