Make those old shoes new again, Bejewel!

Have a pair of heels you know longer wear, or a pair that just don’t cut it anymore style wise? Well with the help of the dollar store and a bit of glue, you can have a brand new pair of shoes and be fashion forward.

You’ll need:

You can use pre-set rhinestones, or to make it easier you can get rhinestones that are not preset from the dollar store. With flat nose pliers, Using the prongs open to release the crystal rhinestones. Skip this step if you’re using loose flat back rhinestones.

Squeeze some glue into a small dish or container. Pick up one of the larger rhinestones with the tweezers, dip the backside into the glue.

Press the stone into the top of the center of the heel. Add several other large stones around the top, gradually working your way down to the middle of the heel with smaller stones. Go back and add small round stones in bare spots. There is no right or wrong way to creating the pattern – have fun with it!

A tip: the smaller round stones will require the tiniest bit of glue. Dip a toothpick into the glue, dab it onto the backside of the stone and apply to the shoe.

Repeat the same steps on the other shoe . . .

And you’re bejeweled!
