Set the stones into the metal settings. Use a pair of pliers to close the prongs onto the crystals. Lay out the pattern to make sure it’s to your liking.

Use masking or painter’s tape to mark where the crystals will be attached. Make sure the areas won’t be covered or placed in awkward areas – try the coat on to assess the placements

Squeeze a dollop of E6000 onto a piece of cardboard. Use a toothpick to apply a tiny bit of glue around the metal setting. Be sure not to get the glue on the back of the crystal since you will eventually need to sew through the setting. The glue simply ensures that the crystals stay in place before you begin to sew.

Use pliers and toothpicks to help adjust smaller pieces. Allow the glue to dry completely.

Thread a needle with like-colored thread. Tie a double knot at the end and pull the needle up from the inside of the coat.

Thread it from one hole in the setting to the opposing hole. Work in a criss cross pattern, sewing each crystal in place. This is definitely the most tedious part but just remind yourself it’s the final step!
