First of all, a sneak peak:



So basically, I came across these really cute sandals from ModCloth.



Unfortunately, they are $94.99 and there was no way I would ever pay that much money for shoes, let alone sandals. So I pouted and went about my day.

A little while later I was walking through Wal-Mart when I spotted these brown sandals for $10.



That's when I got my brilliant idea! I bought the sandals and went to Michael's and purchased some light pink fake flowers for $3.99 (on sale).



I got out my E6000 and glued those babies on! And now I have my own little DIY version of those super cute sandals. (I totally hate my feet, but I'll post the photo, anyway.  Embarrassed)



So, not difficult at all, but I'm still proud of them.  Grin

---------------

EDIT!

I made another pair. These sandals were also from Wal-Mart but varied slightly from the ones above. I forgot the before pic, though.  Undecided I used large hot pink fake flowers for these.






They are kind of goofy, but I think they'd look cute if I wore them to the beach or somethin'.  Grin

Such a pretty outcome!  I've been wanting to do something like that, too.  So many shoes are ugly these days...  They need flowers to cheer them up.  ^_^

Adorable! And I would venture to say that they look pretty much exactly like the other ones! Way to go you!
Also - your toenails are super fantastic! Too cute!

Thanks, everybody!  Cheesy

Thank you!  Smiley I just started venturing into "nail art" and I'm not really good at it, either. But the strawberries are easy. I just paint the entire nail red, then I use my green Stripe Rite (it has a really tiny brush... I got it at Sally's) to do the stem. Then I dip a toothpick in yellow polish to make the polka dots. The first time I did it, it didn't look that great, but I'm slowly getting better.  Tongue

Don't mind at all!  Grin

I made another pair tonight. I had a different pair of Wal-Mart sandals in my closet from last year. I used really big hot pink flowers this time. They're kinda goofy, but I like 'em. I'll add a picture later.  Smiley
