DIY Embellished Heels

Saturday, January 14, 2012

I love a good DIY as much as the next gal, but I think I have made the coolest DIY ever! (At least until the next cool one, ha) I have been contemplating this little idea for some time now, but the catalyst was another blogger who covered her Louboutin's in sequins. Now, I don't think I could ever deface a pair of shoes that expensive, but a $10 pair from the thrift store, heck yeah!

The End Result:




This is How I did it:



1. I started with a thrifted pair of black pumps




2. I picked up a bag multiple sized rhinestones at a local craft store



3. You can use any glue you like, but I love this Liquid stitch. It is intended for cloth, but I use it on everything, super durable!

4. I started gluing the smallest rhinestones around the base of the heel, and worked my way up


5. As I got higher up the heel, I incorporated larger rhinestones

6. I didn't put the rhinestones all the way up the heel, I wanted to give them a unique feel and organic design. It takes the glue 24 hours to set, but then your all finished!!
