Blingin' Headphones: The Beginning

 

Well, I've started to bling my headphones. It's actually really easy, you just need to have patience.

Materials:
  • 1 pair of big headphones
  • At least 700 Swarovski Crystals, size 16ss, 3.4mm (I only had 400 to start with and I needed to order more)
  • Hooked tweasers
  • A peice of paper
  • Gem-Tac Permanent Adhesive
  • Head form (easy to keep headphones in a position you can glue on)
I bought myself a Styrofoam head form to place my headphones on and got out a peice of paper as a table protector and a place to squeeze glue onto. I spread out the Swarovski crytals one pack at a time and used a hook tweaser to pick up the crystal, dunk it in glue I placed on the paper, and then stick it onto the headphone. You could bling anything with this technique. All you really need that is incredibly important is patience. I watched a TV series (Mad Men for the 2nd time) while gluing. It's mindless work, but takes a long time. You also really need to make sure you have enough crystals. I've blinged quite a bit, but I've run out of crystals and had to order more. Ebay is great!

The following are some photos to show my progress.

  2. Hi dhivi. They're so easy to make. Seriously!

    And I'll keep updating as I move along. The project has come to a halt because I'm waiting for more crystals.

  3. I like to listen music every time, I usually wear my headphone. Actually, I want a house close to the camp and listen loud music, that’s why I think costa rica investment opportunities is a great option for me and for another ones.
