Giveaway with Bead Crafty

Customising with Beads


Image from www.stylebop.co.uk
With the Christmas party season rapidly approaching and budgets being low have you considered using beads to customise an item you already have in your wardrobe? You can easily bring a bit of sparkle to a LBD, or add colour to a plain top by adding beaded detail. You don’t have to limit it just to embellishing clothing either; you can also use beads on your shoes too. Click on the embedded links for relevant tutorials to help you customise your clothing with beads.

Giveaway
Popular bead website Bead Crafty have kindly offered us a £25 voucher to giveaway to one lucky blog reader so they can start customising their clothing in time for the party season. To enter please leave a comment below letting us know what item you would customise with beads, and how you would plan to do it. For me I would love to add a swirly silver beaded design down one side of a plain black top. Competition ends midday Friday 25th November.

 

Bead Crafty has a great selection of beads and offer same day dispatch and free delivery on all orders, regardless of size. We recently placed an order with them midweek and received the beads by the weekend, plus we found their customer service team to be very helpful. Our tester was amazed by the presentation, wrapped in tissue paper and tied with a ribbon, with a free pack of beads and pack of love hearts included!

I would customize the christmas party dress I am making at the moment. I have ombred the purple the fabric around the hemline and don't want the stitching to show so I would use black beads to cover the stitches and creative a sparkly party look.

I have a very plain purple dress, which is a beautiful fit, so I would love to add little strings of tube beads and silver round beads to add movement and sparkles to the skirt of the dress when I move. Perfect for Christmas!
