sparkly mic

I’ve sparkled headphones, eggs, frames, bags so the next logical thing was a microphone, right?

Yes, I know I’m a dj, not a diva, but I’ve always thought that crystalized mics singers use on stage are awesome, and I’m not about to drop $700 on something that simply amuses me, so I made my own!

Here’s what you’ll need.   A microphone (I used a wired mic, not wireless) &  self adhesive sparkles.

Stick all over, and voila!  Sparkly mic:

This isn’t a mic I could use every day in the studio, but once in awhile if I’m doing my show somewhere.

Too much?

So if you’ve got a need for a sparkly mic (you’re in a band or you’ve got a little one who likes to pretend they’re Carrie Underwood) this is a really easy DIY.  Happy sparkling!

i’m a sparkle addict

It all started innocently enough.   I decided to sparkle some headphones.   I’m a dj, I use them everyday, I like sparkle, what’s the harm right?

I took a break for awhile, but when winter rolled around I got the urge to make things sparkly again.  I reinvented a can to add a little sparkle to my makeup brushes:

Then I got into making sparkly headbands.


After that it all went downhill.  I mean, hello, I gemmed out a can to put lollipops in at my desk (although it is fitting)

I sparkled an Easter egg last weekend:


For the past few weekends I’ve been slowly working on this.  That would be a mid progress bejeweled wreath.   Yes.  wreath.   The tackiest thing ever.


IT’S OFFICIAL, I have a problem with sparkles.

I make these things, not because I’m really hoping to have the gaudiest wreath on my door (seriously, that thing will never see the light of day) but because it relaxes me.   Making things sparkly is essentially a kindergarten craft project, and sometimes after a week of crazy time at work, running around with the kid and manfriend, I like to take an hour to sit with a glass of wine and glue jewels to stuff.   Well, I suppose the glass of wine could explain the crazier creations, but still it’s like a sparkly mandala.  If I’m lucky enough to become a little old lady I won’t have a house full of cats, I’ll have a house full of sparkles.

crystal headphones

How beautiful are these?   Headphones covered in crystal:

I wear headphones every day at work so it would be so fabulous to have a blinged out pair like those.   If I had $530 lying around I would have my headphones fabbed up in a second!   I haven’t purchased anything from the website that designed them, letscrystalit.com, but I’ve admired their work for awhile and it’s pretty amazing!
