Whether you think of rhinestones as being a tool for adding “bling” or a tool for elevating glamour, they’re sure a lot of fun to work with! Rhinestone projects take patience and a careful, steady hand but the shining final product is always worth the trouble.
Check out these 15 amazing projects that rhinestone lovers will want to get started on right away!
1. Rhinestoned laptop
If you’re going to rhinestone your laptop, we suggest that you cover it in a case first rather than sticking it to the actual surface of your computer. Once you’ve done that, however, you can use gems and strong glue to create almost any pattern you want, just like The Gunny Sack did!
2. Rhinestoned camera strap
Are you tired of how your plain black camera strap looks around your neck at events whenever you’re caught in front of the lens rather than behind it? Trying following Funkytime‘s lead and using both rhinestones and glitter to jazz up your look even if you’re still hauling your camera around!
3. Rhinestoned Converse
Whether you’re adding sparkle and dazzle to your own shoes or your baby’s, the method used by U Create Crafts to make these cute little leopard print runners is the same one you’ll use either way! We love the glamorous statement it makes, no matter whose runners you bedazzle.
4. Braided rhinestone necklace
Instead of just gluing individual rhinestones to things, Honestly WTF shoes you how to braid metal set rhinestones into a necklace instead. Choose whichever colour string you like and whichever rhinestone shape you choose and then follow their weaving and braiding instructions carefully.
5. Rhinestoned headband
Headbands are a simple way to accessorize, but making your own DIY headband featuring rhinestones will certainly make your classic accessory stand out a little more than usual! Flax & Twine shows you how it’s done.
6. Rhinestoned curtains
Crafting Rebellion‘s rhinestone curtain idea is a great opportunity to do a number of things! Firstly, you’ll get to put those bigger gems you’ve had your eye on to good use, as tiny rhinestones won’t show up well and might be too tedious to work with on such a large piece of fabric. Secondly, you’ll get to practice your hand sewing! Technically you could glue these gems on, but they might pop off when you grab the curtains to pull them open.
7. Rhinetsoned candle holders
Whether you’re just looking to jazz up your own room or set our a few extra delicate decor pieces at a wedding reception, these simple little containers are totally transformed by adding a few simple rhinestones around the brims. The Country Chic Cottage shows you a few different styles.
8. Rhinestoned iPhone case

9. Rhinestoned flipflops
Dream a Little Bigger‘s tutorial for rhinestone flipflops reminds you just how easy most rhinestoning projects are, but they also remind you how effective a few gems can really be. We feel like rhinestones are always work the time they take!
10. Rhinestoned water bottle
Desiging yourself a rhinestoned water bottle like this one on Pinterest will certainly stop you from mixing your bottle up with someone else’s at the gym! Just make sure you use very strong glue, like E6000, or those rhinestones will also stop you from washing that water bottle properly without losing gem everywhere.
