Pimp your poppy ♥

Hey dolls!

Hope you are all well and had a lovely Halloween! I was in Los Angeles last week and will be doing a post about where I went, what I bought and who I met!

So as many of you in the UK will know that around this time of year, poppies are worn for remembrance day and this year more and more celebrities are wearing crystal poppies; from the X Factor judges to the Loose Women ladies. I love the idea behind the poppies and think that pimping them makes them so more fashionable!

I had the idea to pimp my poppy the other day and quickly ordered some crystals from the Internet and purchased my poppy and then got busy with the bling!

This is what you will need if you want to recreate the pimped poppy:



Simply take the tweezers and lifted the crystals from the paper, twisting as you do so. Don't worry about the glue, it is already attached.


Then place the crystal where you want on the poppy, I went for a random crystal look, and then push down with your fingers to ensure that they are stuck down.


Then carry on placing your crystals and there you go, a pimped poppy!
