I was inspired to do this DIY because of the holiday season! Makes me want to add sparkle to everything! (plus, being short I end up cuffing a lot of my pants. But I love the look! It's not solely out of necessity!) And luckily, this is the time of year you score all of the sparkley supplies you need for this! I got the big sheets of gems from Dollarama! Super score! I think the glue is pretty much available at most crafting stores. I found mine at walmart.
