DIY Glitter Collar

In this post I will show you how to make a REALLY SIMPLE glitter collar (it literally takes no time at all). This is very effective and on trend at the moment, however, this is not the most permanent solution to a glitter collar, it's just a bit of fun and may not last very long due to the materials used. Feel free to substitue any materials used to make a more hard wearing piece.

You will need:
- old shirt
- scissors
- pen
- glitter foam with sticky back (bought from poundland)

Materials needed

Start by carefully cutting the shirt collar off at the seams

This is what you will be left with

Lay the collar out flat to get rid of wrinkles, although I didn't it may be wise to iron it

Mark the shape of the design on the back of the sticky back glitter foam, the collar may be too big so mark a centre point and do this in two halves as I have done

This is what your design will look like once drawn out

Cut out the shapes

Peel the back away from the glitter foam and stick firmly to the collar, repeat for both pieces and even out the seam at the back

The finished piece

Very simple yet effective. This is just a fun way to spruce up an outfit, as I said it is not very durable and the glitter does fall out a little so glitter material and fabric glue may work better. This was just something fun I thought I'd try out and share, not a very serious DIY but hey ho :)


  1. This is such a good idea! It looks so cute :)

  2. Such a cute idea, I bet if you put some hairspray on top of that the glitter would stay on much better :) x

  3. Love this D.I.Y. - might have to give it a go at some point! x

  5. This is such a fabulous idea! I will definitely try this out as soon as my exams have finished. Thanks for this post, it's clear and the step-by-step guide is brilliant! I have to say, I absolutely LOVE your hair! Aaah you remind me of Charlotte Free, you're so beautiful and I'm SUPER envious of your hair! I wish I could die my hair a colour like this, but it really wouldn't suit me! I am thinking of maybe dip-dying my hair a lilac colour but I'm sure it wouldn't suit me at all.
