Updated Vintage Phone

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.

Happy Crafting!
