Another great idea from Erica at Honestly…WTF! This simple tutorial has the most fabulous results, and I’ve reposted it here for your convenience.
You will need:
- a pair of high heels
- 40-50 large and medium (10-15 mm) multi-shaped rhinestones
- 30-40 small (3-6 mm) round rhinestones
- E-6000 Glue
- a small dish or container (don’t use anything nice! this is for the glue)
Squeeze some glue 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!
A 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 . . .
And you’re bejeweled!
Thanks again to Erica at Honestly…WTF for this great tutorial!
