Give your little angel a new shirt.
  1. Wash and dry the T-shirt before starting this project. Do not use any fabric softeners. Read glue packaging for care instructions.
  2. Cover your work surface with newspaper or an old tablecloth. Insert a piece of waxed paper inside the T-shirt to prevent glue from seeping through to the back of the shirt.
  3. Before you start gluing on the jewels, practice your "Angel" design on the T-shirt. Make sure all the letters will fit!
  4. Once you're happy with how the jewels look on the shirt, lift 1 jewel at a time, dot a small amount of glue on the shirt, and press each one into the glue.
  5. Let the glue dry completely before handling or wearing.
