I’m still in Valentine’s Day mode, have you gotten your dude something yet? Are you a satisfied single and doing the Galentine’s Day thing with your girlfriends? If you are like me, it will likely be a family night. Either way that is cool.
Either way, you need something to wear and I’ve got a cute situation for you. First, I did the DIY Pearl Collar that wears much like a necklace. Now I’m doing a DIY Pearl shirt with a focus on the collar. You can really add the pearls wherever you want them.
You need the shirt of your choice, pearls with a flat back and glue. (Substitute option: Pearls, needle, and thread.)
I worked while the collar was still folded down, this allows you to see your working area better. You need to know how many rows you will need. I started with the bottom of my color and I rubbed the glue directly on the collar and then place the pearls one by one. Continue to routine until you finish the first row.
You should have found your groove by now that you’ve finished your first row. Adjust your technique if you necessary and keep moving on to your second row.
By the third row, you will be a full-on expert. As you move along be sure to go back and press the pearls firmly into the fabric.
Your finished product should look something like this. You can do the entire collar all the way around or you can just do each side. It is a super cute way to give new life to a shirt. I’m going to pair this with my DIY Beaded Boyfriend Jeans I made and rock them at fashion week. Stay tuned.
I paired my pearl collar button up with a black off the shoulder top. I loved the way it turned out.
