You have probably seen the jeweled or crystal embellished sandals trend around; personally I love how a little sparkle can take a simple pair of leather sandals up a notch , but spending a ton of money on something that takes little time and (trust me) no crafty hands or talent to do, makes no sense! This is the kind of project that doesn’t require lots of money or expertise, yet the result is amazing. Judge for yourself!
- Acrylic crystals
- Strong glue (I used leather grip adhesive)
- A pair of sandals. I used these in tan that are just $24, but these and these would also be great for this project
Play around with the crystals until you come up with a pattern or design you like. Just make sure you have enough for both sandals. Use a tiny tiny bit of glue stick to temporarily place them before you use the strong glue. Why? This way you can re-arrange them or move them around in case you make a mistake.
Start with the center of the design. Apply a bit of glue to the crystal, press down and hold firmly for 10-15 seconds.
Keep adding crystals, working your way out from the center. Let the glue dry for a couple of hours before hitting the street (or the beach!)2
