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!!

SO awesome. I've seen something similar with glitter, but not rhinestones. Looks surprisingly classy and will go with lots of outifts! I might have to try this :)
