This phone has been in the family since the 1970's. It is a working phone but I was tired of the vintage flowers on the base. It still has my Mother's old phone number on the label.
I decided a little bling would do the job of updating this cute vintage style phone.
I ordered blue crystals to match the blue of the phone.
I used 1/4" score tape to glue on the crystals. I started by placing the score tape around the edge.
Then I place the stones one at a time around the bottom onto the core tape and pressed firmly.
I also glued a single stone to the center of each flower.
Next I repeated the process around the dial. I also added 3 stones to the gold cradle of the phone.
To each end of the hand set I glued a large white flat back pearl.
Love the new look. Not a lot of change just enough to give it a little updated look.
