How to glue rhinestones to a metal bangle
Ready to show off your patriotic spirit? Don’t have anything patriotic to wear? No problem we got you covered! Follow our simple instructions to learn how to make your own one of a kind patriotic bracelet.
For this project I used:
1 metal bangle
12ss Light Siam, Crystal and Sapphire rhinestones
Wax tipped tool
After measuring out the length of the bracelet, I decided I wanted to do 3 rhinestones of each color. I located the center and started with the crystal rhinestone. E6000 tends to be sort of gloppy so when I use E6000, I squeeze a bit over a paper plate and then scrape a small amount of glue with a toothpick. I then apply this glue onto the surface of the metal bangle. Using the wax tipped tool, pick up a rhinestone and gently press it into the glue.
Continue gluing rhinestones around the bracelet and then allow to dry for 24 hours.
Fun , fashionable, and patriotic. This bracelet is perfect to wear anytime not just for the Fourth of July.

Putting on a pair of rhinestone jeans makes you feel fabulous, but they’re also very pricey. Additionally, all too often, many manufacturers of rhinestone jeans use lower-quality rhinestones. However, you can easily DIY rhinestone jeans that look expensive for a lot less money.
A Few Ideas for DIY Rhinestone Jeans
Search online and you can find different ideas to embellish your rhinestone jeans:
However, if this is your first-time gluing rhinestones to fabric, you may want to choose something simple. Using fabric paint on jeans is easy and accenting with rhinestones gives your clothing a nice sparkle. Plus, you can create a template to paint your element making the process even easier.
Often, you can find patterns for natural elements, letters, and numbers in embroidery books. When you find one you like, use your printer to copy the design onto card stock. Then, using an X-ACTO® knife, cut out your design to create your template.
Instructions For DIY Rhinestone Jeans
For this project, I choose a multi-media approach of using fabric paint and rhinestones. To recreate the design on your jeans you’ll need:
Gather your supplies together. You’ll find many brands of fabric paint and anyone will do. When choosing your rhinestone glue, make sure it’s washable, dried clear, and applicable for rhinestones.
If your jeans are brand-new, you’ll need to wash them before you begin. Then, lay out your clothing on your work surface as flat as possible.
Begin by squeezing your white fabric paint into a shallow paint dish. Lay the template flat along one side of the jeans. With your brush, dab white paint on the jeans. I painted six daisies on one side and one daisy on the other side. If you like more daisies, move the template lower along the pant leg and paint more.
Allow 24 hours to dry completely before gluing on your rhinestones. Once the paint is completely dry, you’re ready to glue on your rhinestones. Place a drop of glue slightly smaller than the rhinestone in the middle of a white daisy. With a wax-tipped tool, pick up a rhinestone and gently press it into the glue. Some of the glue should seep out from the sides. This forms a seal and keeps the rhinestones from peeling off during washing.
Repeat for all the other daisies. Once again, allow to dry flat for 24 hours.
Sassy yet, stylish, you’ll love your new jeans! Plus, once you see how easy it is to DIY rhinestone jeans, you’ll want to do every pair you own.
