5 Creative Ideas for using Beaded Iron On Trim from Expo International.
When I received this selection of beautiful beaded trim from Expo International,
the creative wheels really started to spin.
I couldn’t narrow it down to just one project, so I created five. (Lucky You!)
But why stop there…
Today, I’m participating with several other designers of Designer Craft Connections
for a fun Blog Hop using the trims from Expo International.
Every designer got something different, so it should be good. (details below)
Turn a simple Dollar Tree* glass cylinder or empty cappuccino bottle in a Elegant Vase.
Spray the top of the Dollar Tree cylinder vase with Gold Glitter Spray Paint* and glue the trim onto the vase with Beacon Zip Dry Glue*. (*affiliate link)
Try gluing two or more pieces of beaded trim to the bottom of a empty jar or vase.
Embellish the band of a plain basket for a little extra style.
Add a even more personality by gluing iron embroidered letters.
#3 Festival Bracelets
Have fun this summer with easy to make Festival Bracelets.
- Measure the size of your wrist.
- Cut a piece of denim or felt approx. 3/4″ longer than your trim.
- Arrange trim onto fabric so that only one end has the extra fabric.
- Lay a clean soft cloth over trim and iron on the fabric.
- Add hook and look tabs* to the end of the fabric.
#4 Jazzed Up Pockets
Jazz up the pockets of jeans, shorts or jacket.
#5 Bridal Pouch
Create a special pouch for the Bride to keep the wedding day jewelry safe while in transport.
Personalize it with Joy Iron On Embroidered letters.
