How to: Style up your old beanie

A while ago, I was invited to participate in the austrianwide Loctite "Style up your..." Blogger competition, which involves giving an old accessory a new look using Loctite's new Style Superglue*. The winner of the competition gets to go on a weekend-trip to a European capital of their choice. I instantly got super excited and thought about what I could possibly style with the tube of superglue they kindly sent me. I discarded many ideas, such as styling up a transparent umbrella, until I settled on one that I was 100% pleased with. I wanted to create something that's not too over-the-top and that I could see myself wearing on a daily basis, especially in the colder months that are just around the corner. Autumn is usually about toned-down colors, such as mustard, forest green and grey. However, if you're like me and you're mostly drawn towards black and white outfits, adding a pop of color is never wrong! 

Here is my finished DIY rhinestone beanie!

Looks cool, doesn't it? I composed a little tutorial showing you how exactly I've done it. It's super easy and it only takes about an hour of time and a somewhat steady hand.

What you will need
An old beanie, Rhinestones, Superglue

It would mean a lot to me if you could vote for me in the public voting once it starts on the 25th of September. I'll update the post on that date with a link and will let you know about it in my following posts! Thank you so much in advance!
