5 Creative Ideas for Beaded Iron On Trim

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)

#1 Vases…

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.

#2 Baskets

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.

For more inspiration, hop on over the to Designer Craft Connection Blog.   And…while you’re there make sure to leave a comment for your chance to win your own treasure chest of trims.

    Oh Sue – all of your ideas are gorgeous and easy to do! My favorite is the vases – so eye catching and sophisticated! The wicker basket is now a pottery barn knockoff 😊
