I got this skirt at the thrift store for $1.61! It’s a cute skirt as it is, but I wanted to add a little sparkle. I used rhinestones from fashionartprojects.com to make quirky little arrows along the hemline.
These things are awesome! I got them in a box of goodies sent by Fashion Art Projects to review. I was instantly drawn to them. They iron-on really quickly and easily. It was a super fast project!
The little rhinestones have a glue side. You just lay them on your fabric glue side down, cover with a press cloth, iron for 15 seconds on each side and DONE!
I used lots of different colored rhinestones to give my skirt more interest!
The skirt is sorta a weird length when worn as a skirt, it hits above the ankle. I could have adjusted that but it totally works as a dress with a shirt underneath and a belt! Really I was too excited to iron rhinestones on it to fix the length first.

I have had this project in mind for iron-on rhinestones for a year! I didn’t think they existed (outside of dancing with the stars) because I have been to a couple of stores with no luck. I am glad to see that they do exist!
And Kate, that skirt is an absolutely fabulous find…and even cuter with rhinestones!

I have about a billion of these rhinestones sitting in a freezer bag and have had absolutely no idea of what to do with them. Thank so much for the inspiration!
To be honest, until now, I would have thought rhinestones would be tacky looking but the way you refashioned the skirt, it totally isn’t! Do the rhinestones hold up in the washer and dryer?
I love this! I struggle to think of nice ways of up cycling, this is definitely good inspiration!
Adorable! I never would have thought to try this. It looks great!
you are just way too creative! gonna find me a thrift skirt!
oh my God !!!! love it !!
