Do It Yourself Jell-O Centerpieces - step one

Using the small paintbrush, apply E6000 to the back of the largest rhinestone and stick to the center of one of the washers. Repeat for the other washer. Gradually, build the pattern of the earring around this central stone. We used a large circular stone for the center and then placed 4 rectangular stones around it.

Carefully apply the E6000 to the back of a small portion of the stringed rhinestones. Be careful not to breathe too much of this stuff in- we learned the hard way that you should wear a mask. Begin wrapping the stringed rhinestones around the perimeter of the washer and your already glued stones. We wrapped the stringed rhinestones around twice giving the edge of the earring a finished look and hiding the washer base completely.
