DIY Cross Collar

Cream Dress: Missguided. Black Skirt: Topshop. Two-Finger Ring: Topshop. Cream Cami: Topshop.

I have had this pink shirt for a while, I brought it from Ark about a year ago in the sale for £6. However, I hardly ever wear it because it falls quite short on my torso and ends just above my jeans which is never good! So, I thought so I would wear it more I would spice up the collar so I could wear it under a jumper. I've been loving the cross symbol recently and I really wanted to implement it into my wardrobe. Before, it was a bland boring shirt with nothing on the collar and now the repetition of these tiny beaded crosses makes it exciting and adds a lovely delicate detail which has completely changed the style of this shirt.
 This was really simple to do, however it was a little fiddly. I did manage to spill the beads all over the lounge floor as well (not advised, especially when you have a little curious dog!). I drew on the shirt's collar where I wanted the crosses so they were equal on each side. I threaded the cotton with 10 beads to go vertically and 3 on each side of the horizontal line. It got a lot easier with practice and by the time I had finished I was a pro. So bare with it and take your time :)

If you fancy giving this a go but don't have a shirt how about trying it on a cardigan or on a scarf?
Leave us a comment and let us know what you think.
Have a wonderful weekend!
Love Kendall
