I don’t know about you, but warmer weather always makes me want to dress up a bit more.  Even with a casual summer maxi dress, it’s fun to add necklaces or bracelets to the outfit mix.  So, I am sure it is no surprise but I just created an EASY jewelry DIY to share!  

Today I am really excited to share my sparkly DIY Glitter Watch.  It’s a fun way to add a little sparkle into your everyday look, too.

What supplies do I need to make a Women’s Glitter Watch?

Brush
Glitter in Gold and Copper
Inexpensive White Watch
Decoupage, Matte Finish

And if you are simply looking for a fun Glitter Apple Watch band – these three are my favorites :

How to make a DIY Sparkly Women’s Watch

Start by laying out your watch band flat. Then, mix a generous amount of decoupage and glitter together in a small container.

Next, using a brush apply the glitter + decoupage mixture to the band top. It is okay if you don’t get completely even coverage on this first round.

Before your first coat has dried, gently shake off the excess.  Then place your watch on a plate and cover it in loose dry glitter.  The plate helps corral and collect fly-away glitter and no matter how hard you try, there will be lots of fly away glitter!

You are wanting to help fill in any spots that have a little decoupage showing with this glitter dump.

After the loose glitter dries completely, do one final coat of the gold + copper glitters along with the decoupage. Brush this final layer over all areas of the TOP of the watch band and allow to dry, again.

Allow for 24 hours of dry time before use.

Don’t be alarmed at the white coloring the decoupage gives the watch band.  It will be dry clear!

Once, all my layers of glitter and decoupage were completely dried, I was surprised that not a single piece of glitter came off the band!  The decoupage really gives it a protective layer.

I later saw that there is a Kate Spade Glitter Watch that sells for around $300.  My glitter watch came in roughly around $12, what a deal!

Glitter Apple Watch Band

I also have had questions about if you could apply this same craft concept and make a Glitter Apple Watch band – honestly I don’t see why not!  As long as you keep clear the areas on the Apple band that sense your wrist, you should be able to add glitter to their band.

And if you want to just purchase one already done, here are my favorites : Glitter Band 1 | Glitter Band 2 | Glitter Band 3.

  1. This is perfect! I have a watch with inter-changeable straps and I never wear the brown one so I think it will be getting a glitter make-over

    1. Emily, I think if it got everyday use it would slowly come apart… but with just occasional use, so far – so good!
