embellished shoulders tutorial

I am loving the current fashion of trend of embellished shoulders. I am seeing it everywhere and I think it is a fun way to wear a little bling. And of course I had to come up with an easy way to create my own!


I started with a black jersey tunic

and used my new favorite Tulip product- Beads in a Bottle. A little like puff paint but once the paint dries is hardens up and feels and looks like beads on the surface. It is machine washable and permanent.
Beads in a Bottle is brand new and will hit stores next month!

I used lots of dots and shapes to embellish the surface of the shoulders.





I let it dry over night and just like that I have a new fun embellished tee!

That's awesome! Such great results (even better than those examples you shared, if I might say)... Hope I can get hold of 'Beads in a Bottle' locally when it is released - any suggestions where I can find out?
