    If the rhinestone is small, (these work best anyway,) Use a pair of tweezers or small pliers to place the flat part of a Rhinestone on the the tip of the glue gun. You only need a small amount of glue on it, otherwise it will come gushing out from under the edges when you press it onto the shirt.

    Quickly place the back of the Rhinestone on the t-shirt and hold it there firmly for 10-20 seconds. Continue the process with different colors, sizes, and shapes of rhinestones to create your own designs. Wait until the glue dries completely.
