DIY Marc Jacobs Cardigan

-1 crewneck cardigan
-Rhinestone, vintage, or otherwise interesting buttons
-Needle and thread
-Glue gun and glue
1. Lay cardigan on your workspace and unbutton it.
2. Line up your rhinestone buttons in a vertical pattern next to each buttonhole.
3. Sew the button flush to the seam of the buttonhole corner closest to the inside. (Note that you are notswitching out the original buttons, but rather adding larger, more ornate buttons that will sit on top of the pre-existing ones.)
4. After securing the new, bigger, rhinestone buttons, you may need to glue them to the cardigan so that they lay flat. If so, wait a few minutes for the glue to try before buttoning the sweater.
5. Button up the cardigan. Your new decorative buttons should now fully cover the original small buttons.
6. To style it in a Marc Jacobs fashion, wear the cardigan so that the buttons are facing the back!
