I love bling! and so i was thinking of how to make chandelier centerpieces for our reception tabl...
I decided early on that I wanted sparkly shoes, but could never find any in my price range. Enter DIY bling shoes.
After one of my trips to the mall I stumbled upon a pair of black heels on clearance for $5 at Debs and decided to go for it. After all, if I ruined it, I'd just be out of a $5 pair of shoes and not an expensive pair.
After several trips to Michael's to use my 50% of coupons to get about 2500 crystals, some satin ribbon, E6000 glue, glass beads and string I embarked on my blingy journey.
Four days and 20 hours later I finished the first shoe. I sewed glass beads on the ankle strap for some dangling pizzaz, I hand glued on a couple thousand tiny crystals in 3 sizes, added a blue bow made out of satin ribbon to match the wedding colors and also be my something blue and did a few snips of fabric here and there.. and VOILA.
I'm quite proud of it and it's so sparkly in person. Include before, during and after pictures. Please excuse my pale pale legs!
What do you ladies think?
