Default rhinestone/bling tutu

Hello all, I received a request for a rhinestone/"blinged out" tutu and I'm a bit confused. I know they sell tulle with rhinestone looking beads already attached to it but I think it might be too sparse in the shiny department for this customer. Has anyone ever attached rhinestones to a tutu? What's the best way? Ideas or pics that you've come across? Thanks for your help!

If you hand-tie, use the spools of glitter tulle - it's awesome! If you sew, stick with shimmer tulle on the bolt. To affix rhinestones, you could use the Hot Fix setup. Go all out with the waistband. Those are my suggestions. HTH!

I've attached using both hotfix and my bedazzler to the tulle. The glitter tulle is also very sparkly, I just don't like to use it because it gets everywhere, so I only use it on special requests.

I don't use glitter tulle for the mess factor, but I do use shimmer & like it! I like the PP's suggestions of hot fix & bedazzler!

Thanks so much! I'll start looking for the shimmer tulle and research the hot fix technique, never used it before, yikes! Thanks for your help!
