How I made sparkly dream shoes

Guestpost by Caroline on Aug. 11th

I bought my wedding shoes very early on and, in my line of work, I get to meet a lot of brides, and I soon became victim to major shoe envy. So I thought, what are my dream shoes? Where can I get my dream shoes? And how can I get dream shoes without spending all my money!?

To be honest the shoes I had already bought where lovely… but just missed something. It turned out they were just missing some sparkle! So, I popped on eBay and bought a few bags of Swarovski crystals in the same awesome colour as my shoes and got sticking.

You'll need crystals, tweezers, and glue.

I recommend getting a few different sizes of crystals so you don't need to be quite as strict with your sticking pattern. I used 2mm, 4mm and 6mm.

I also got myself a cheap red felt tip pen and rubbed it over those white dusty looking super glue marks as I worked and it worked a treat.

It took a few weekends and quite a few more bags of crystals, but i did it! I made my dream shoes and saved myself a ton of money too! I heart them.
