Title: beaded shoe springtacular
Post by: Avril222 on April 04, 2006 07:24:08 PM
hi, i took a pair of black heels that looked like these:


4 different colors of bugle beads, some serious tacky glue, snipping of the ankle strap, and a little sculpey clay (and some seed beads and clip on earring backs so that the flowers can be removed...) for the flowers later and voila:







this is my first post and first crafster project ever! so what do you think?

those are BEAUTIFUL!  was it hard to do?  because i want pointy shoes but none that i find are sassy enough.  and yours have the perfect amount of both sass and class.  absolutely amazing work.

WOW. so did you glue it on or sew it on? I'm a little confused there.

"WOW. so did you glue it on or sew it on? I'm a little confused there."

the bugle beads are glued on to the shoe, row by row....no sewing, thank god. finally, the shoes are finished off with latex spray as a top coat so that i can actually wear them out and about.
