Swarovski Crystals Batman Cap Rhinestone Embellishment Project

June 20, 2023 3 min read

batman cap customised with Swarovski Crystals rhinestone embellishment.

Swarovski Crystals are famous for their quality and for Swarovski Approved Customers they offer an opportunity to add status and sparkle to you finished items. Follow the stages below to recreate this stunning batman cap rhinestone embellishment which we are sure the superhero fans out there are going to love!

Please be aware that the crystal size and quantity specified in this project, are both unique to the specific hat we embellished in this example and are the result of measuring the space between the horns of the batman logo and choosing the crystal size that allowed for three crystals to fit neatly in the available space. In this case the best size was SS7 and the quantity needed was then deduced by measuring around the outline of the logo and dividing that number by the width of the SS7 crystal.

This was a straightforward process thanks to the measurements available on our Bluestreak Crystals website. If you wish to fill the logo with rhinestones instead of simply outlining it, our crystal calculator will help you figure out how many crystals you would need based on the measurement you gather of your hat and the size of crystal you wish to work with.

Step 1

Prepare the glue

Fill the Syringe with enough SuperTite Fusion Tack Glue for your project, be careful to not take more glue than you need. The easiest way to do this is to remove the plunger from the back of the syringe and then slowly squeeze the glue into the tube, so that the glue gently runs down one side without covering the opening at the other end. It is important that air can pass out the other end without affecting the glue inside at this stage. Then reinsert the plunger as carefully as you can – you will face resistance because the seal needs to be airtight, the plunger is successfully reattached when you hear it pop into place.

Step 2

Guard against air bubbles in the glue syringe

Once the plunger is securely back in, you are likely to have a section of air inside the syringe. To fix this simply hold the syringe vertically so that the glue slides down away from the opening at the top and gently push on the plunger, pushing the air out until there is only glue left inside. You can then attach the needle tip, completing the syringe.

Step 3

Apply the glue

Use the loaded syringe to squeeze out a thin line of glue along the outer edge of the batman logo. Be careful to not apply too much, otherwise you will risk the glue squishing up over the edges of the rhinestones, which will obscure their famous sparkle. We also advise doing this stage in small sections when working on three dimensional objects to minimise the risk of accidentally touching the glue while it’s still wet.

Step 4

Place the rhinestones

Use the Double Ended Wax Picker Pen to gently place the Swarovski Rhinestones onto the glue. Try to keep the crystals close together with as few gaps as possible for best effect.


Allow the glue to dry

Leave the glue to dry for at least an hour, the drying time may vary depending on how thickly you applied the glue. You will know it is dry when you can no longer see any white glue, this is because Fusion Tack Glue dries clear as well as waterproof.


Congratulations you have completed the project !
