DIY Jewel-Button Cardigan

DIY Jewel-Button Cardigan

I’m a sucker for anything colorful, sparkly and unexpected. This Sonia by Sonia Rykiel has all of those qualities so of course I fell in love with it, but not the price. Now, I have to let you guys know that I am not a very crafty person. This is one of my first DIYs, but I figured it was pretty simple and inexpensive.

Here are the supplies you will need: A grey sweater. I got this one from H&M for less than $20.

E6000 Glue or some other strong stuff and some big colorful jewels. Make sure you have enough to cover all of the buttons on the sweater. Make each one a different color.

Lay the sweater flat and line up where you want the jewels to go.

Put glue on the first button, add a jewel and hold the jewel down for a couple seconds.


And there you have it!

  1. Just be sure to size up the cardigan so you can pull it over your head or maybe cut the button holes bigger.

  2. How fun! With the jewels on can you button it back up or are the jewels too big for that? Super fun DIY

  5. I'm usually not a big fan of DIY because I seriously get scared to ruin any of my clothes when I attempt anything (I've had failures in the past), but this looks cute and super easy.
