It seemed like summer was never going to end in LA. Even though I love the warm sun shining on me, I was beginning to long for cooler weather and fall dressing. Finally, last week it became chillier and I was so excited to bring out my coats and sweaters. Now that I am planning out my fall wardrobe, I decided to DIY a sweater to add a fun, personal touch. After seeing rhinestone sweaters in all my favorite boutiques, I decided to create and share an easy to follow tutorial on how to make one at home. I have partnered with PayPal to show you how easy it is to purchase supplies on the go. I went to the fashion district in downtown LA and purchased all the supplies with my PayPal mobile app. It was so easy, and I was literally in and out of the store and was able to pay in minutes using PayPal. Then, picked up a beautiful emerald sweater, my favorite jewel tone color for fall at a store down the street. The whole process of opening my app and searching for the merchant to pay took just a few minutes, while the actual time it took me to #paypalit was less than 1 minute. Afterwards, I began to DIY at home. Read more about the full tutorial after the break…

The process of using the PayPal mobile app to checkout took less than 1 minute, whereas creating my DIY, along with looking for online design inspiration took about 45 minutes.

– sweater 
– e6000 adhesive 
– rhinestones (try a variety of shapes, sizes, and colors) 
– chopsticks 
– paper plate 

1. Lay out your rhinestone design on your sweater. I decided on a design around the neck, but I also love a all-over design. Try looking for inspiration online. 
2. Add a small amount of e6000 adhesive to the paper plate. Then, using a chopstick, add a dab of adhesive to the backside the rhinestone and glue onto the sweater. 
3. Repeat step 2 for each rhinestone. 
4. Let fully dry before wearing.

    Love this DIY! I never buy clothes with jewels because I'm afraid they'll fall off. This would be a more affordable option, and yours turned out sooo cute.
