D.I.Y Ways To Glamorize And Embellish Your Shoes!

Budget fashionistas and shoe lovers know that we do not need to buy a new pair of shoes for every event. Sometimes we prefer to rely on our favorite high heels that we have mastered walking in, especially for events like weddings or prom where there is dancing involved. 

We wouldn't want to be the girl who is remembered for taking a fall in her gorgeous heels. So we opt to recycle and re-wear our shoes and splurge on the wedding gift instead. Read on to see how you can take your stilettos and heels from basic to fab with our easy D.I.Y ideas. 

Where To Find Your Embellishments:
The crafts store, fabric store, hair accessories and vintage jewelry store should be at the top of your window shopping list. You will be surprised by the beautiful clips, brooches, bows, ribbons and fabrics already embellished with crystals, pearls etc that you will find for incredibly low prices at these stores. The next time you go past one, make a quick stop and score a fabulous find, it may just become your next embellishment piece for your fave pair of heels.

Where To Place Your Embellishments:
You can pin them at the front of your shoes, on the outer-side near your ankles, on the straps, at the back of your shoes right above the heel or all over the heels.

How To Embellish Your Shoes:
Pin Them On: Brooches are at the top of our shoe embellishments list because they are usually gorgeous with intricate details and the vintage brooches ensure that your post embellished shoe will be fabulous and one-of-a-kind. Plus pinning them to your heels only takes a few seconds!

Glue Them On: For other embellishments, like fabrics, flat faux pearls and crystals attach them to the desired area of your shoes using your glue gun and glue stick. The key is to hold your embellishment in place  for about 60 seconds after placing it on your shoes to ensure that it stays on.
