DIY Bedazzled Heels

DIY Bedazzled Heels

Samantha Jonas-Rongo

Why Spend hundreds, maybe thousands of dollars for one pair of Miu Miu heels when you can create your own pair to look just as chic and stylish. The only difference, you can turn your old heels, or a new $25 pair into heels that look like you spent 10x as much.

WHAT YOU’LL NEED:

  • a pair of heels
  • 40-50 large and medium (10-15 mm) multi shaped rhinestones…(Find at dollar store)
  • 30-40 small (3-6 mm) round rhinestone…(Find at dollar store)
  • E-6000 Glue…(Find at Walmart, Michaels or other craft store)
  • tweezers
  • small dish or container
  • toothpick
  • flat nose pliers (optional if needed)

DIRECTIONS:

These rhinestones are connected to a metal hold back, so with flat nose pliers, pry the prongs open to release the crystal rhinestones. Skip this step if you’re using loose flat back rhinestones:

Squeeze some E-6000 into a small dish or container. Pick up one of the larger rhinestones with the tweezers, dip the backside into the glue:

Press the stone into the top of the center of the heel. Add several other large stones around the top, gradually working your way down to the middle of the heel with smaller stones. Go back and add small round stones in bare spots. There is no right or wrong way to creating the pattern – have fun with it:

TIP: the smaller round stones will require the tiniest bit of glue. Dip a toothpick into the glue, dab it onto the backside of the stone and apply to the shoe.

Repeat the same steps on the other shoe . . .

Let set for 1 hour
