Jazz up those dull headphones with a little sparkle. Whether you have a portable CD player, MP3 player or smart phone, headphones are necessary for delivering music to fanatics on the go. Style reflects your personality, and headphones can be decorated to show your individual style the same way your clothes do. There are a few things to keep in mind when you are making bling bling headphones.
Things You'll Need
Shop for rhinestones and glue at your local craft store. Choose rhinestones that have a flat back for easier application. The best glues for rhinestones are E-6000, cement or epoxy glues.
Clean your headphones thoroughly before rhinestone application. It is important to have a clean surface area so the crystals will adhere properly. Use a small amount of soap and water on a paper towel so that the headphones will not be ruined.
Lay out your headphones, glue and rhinestones on a durable work surface. A toothpick and tweezers should also be used for the application process. It may also be helpful to use a stencil or other display as a guideline for your bling bling headphones.
Apply the glue to the rhinestones using a toothpick with your dominant hand. The rhinestone should be held by tweezers in your non-dominant hand.
Place the rhinestones on the headphones using your tweezers. The rhinestones should be affixed very close to one another.
Brush your hands over the rhinestones after your headphones have dried. This will allow you to find any loose rhinestones, which you can replace as necessary.
