I popped a picture on Twitter @ the stunning Sophie Ellis-Bextor this week of my Glamtastic shoes i custom....anyway, cutting a long story short i have been asked to tell all how i do's so so so easy, costs next to naff all, will take you an evening and looks AMAZE!!!!!
So here goes......
What you need:
*Fabric covered shoes (Patent and shiny just don't seem to look as nice)
*Fabric glue (i use Hi-Tack glue as that seems to work the best for me and isn't uber expensive)
*DIAMONDS! I get mine from my local fabric shop for 99p for a handful if you dont have a local get eBaying!
*Wooden nail stick (Superdrug or chat up your local nail bar for a free one!)
What you do:
Now it all depends on how POW your feeling, do you want diamond smoothered heels...heels and wedge or THE WHOLE SHABANG!
Start at the edges and glue an area about the size of a pound coin, wet the end of the wooden stick (this makes picking up the twinkles easier) dab a diamond from your pile and pop it on the glue...keep going until you have a headache from all that sparkle!
I use about 5 bags usually.
Leave to dry over night and wear with pride!
Now then....i'm not being funny BUT these little beauts all hand done by my me with tres love look allot like a certain designer and fashionolas dream shoes begining with a G and ending with a A... G*NA.... they wont cost you £600 but they will cost you about a FIVER! NICE!
Now flee.....flee to your local craft shops for glue and sparkle...and take this cry with you "POWER TO THE CRAFTER!"
Much love x x x x
