        That's awesome - thanks for the link. I have been putting off buying one for a while now because they are SOOO expensive - especially the ones that are already decorated. This is perfect!

          I haven't done mine yet, but I have bought a certain glue specifically for gluing the swarovksi rhinestones and of course the rhinestones themselves.

          I used Beads & Jewelry Supplies : Artbeads.com, Swarovski Beads, Glass Beads, Swarovski Crystals, Jewelry Supplies, Charms, Alphabet Beads, Seed Beads, Findings to get my decorating supplies.

              Well we'll see how mine turns out. Not necessarily going to be good.... haha

              I'll post a pic when it's done though.

                To be perfectly honest. I got mine and I blingged it. It looks great. But by the time I spent $4 a bag on crystals it was the same price to by one that was already done. Atleast I can say I made it myself. I used the bedazzled gun.

                  Kelly- I'm afraid my DIY project is going to turn out more expensive then I wanted. I'm thinking of trashing the idea and just using fake flowers to save some money.

                    Well my topper was $8 and then I spent about $20 on the different rhinestones from artbeads.com and only like $3.50 on the glue at Hobby Lobby, so I'm hoping I like it and it will have been much cheaper then buying one done.

                    Kelly where'd you get your rhinestones and how many bags did you need to do it?

                      Might be a good idea if your trying to stay in a budget. I took 4 bags of the medium size and used a few of the tiny ones.
