A few weeks ago, Gwyneth and I shared our love for studded sandals. Naturally, the Balenciaga Rope Studded Wedges immediately occupied the top spot on our wishlist. But at $935, they really put the wish in wishlist. So we decided to shop our closet and DIY them instead.
We held off on posting this tutorial until we were sure they’d survive pounding the very hot pavement in NYC, and we’re pleased to report they have! So if you love accessorizing accessories as much as we do, here’s the how-to.
- A pair of sandals (We used our Mossimo Perri Wedges from Target.)
- Small rhinestones (We used leftovers from last month’s Letter K.)
- Nail polish (We used Essie’s Turquoise and Caicos and e.l.f.’s Desert Haze.)
- Crazy glue
Paint your rhinestones with two coats of polish.
Once dry, glue them on with crazy glue. That’s it!
First, we taped off the caps.
Then we gave them two coats of the Krylon Metallic Brass Spray Paint we had left over from our Expedit Overlays.
And then we wore them.
How easy was that?
