Things you need for this DIY:
✝ a LBD
✝ 20 yards of sequin trim
✝ fabric glue
✝ a pencil
$14 ($10 for the trim + $4 for the glue)
Sparkly gold aplique? YES PLEASE!
I used basic fabric glue which isn't washable. With all the sequins I wouldn't machine wash this dress anyway. The tacky glue is great because it's sticky and helps keep the sequins in place as you go. Instead of loose sequins I used trim which made attaching it way easier.
I used the pencil to trace around the stencils I cut out. I covered the pencil line with the glue and filled it in.
I applied the trim starting from the edge working in.
I made seven birds altogether, five in the front and two in the back. It took awhile but it was worth it.
