Ladies, gele has gone to school, earned a degree and has returned as embellished gele! We know our geles are here to stay right? No female traditional outfit is complete without the gele and it always add the extra “oomph” to an outfit if it is well tied.
The embellished gele is beautiful and well blinged. The embellishment can either be beaded or have rhinestones added to it. If you have always wanted to have this gele and have been saving up money to buy one, don’t stress yourself, if you are the craft-inclined type, with a few items and some glue, you can have your friends asking you where you bought your gele and you can smile sweetly and tell them you made it!
The best part about doing the embellished gele yourself is also that you can pick up your favorite gele and revamp it!
In this video by DIYDose, she showed us how she achieved this.
The items she used include rhinestone iron on transfer; loose iron on rhinestone; flat back pearls; Fevicryl Fabric glue and plain gele that she got from her mama.
According to her, she got her supplies from Eko Idumota Market, Lagos.
