Shoe Upgrade

I got these shoes a while ago (a year to be exact) but I haven't worn them because I felt they were a little plain.  Then I got the idea to decorate them on the cheap, so here's what you'll need:
  • shoes $5 
  • a hot glue gun (I borrowed mine from my dad - see how heavy duty it is?)
  • glass beads $1.25 
  • stretchy jewellery cord or string

First, I took the beads and measured how many I would need per strap.

Then using the string, I strung them by fours and tied knots at the ends.  I like to string them together so if one decides to fall off, then at least it's attached to the other ones, I just like to extra security.

Hot glue each bead onto the shoe, crazy glue would also work.

Press down and you're all set! Now go model your shoes for all to see!


  1. what a great idea! the sandals look so much better with the beads!

  2. oh my goodness! What a cute idea!! I have some shoes that I can do this with! Thanks for the cute idea!!

  3. great idea. I can do this myself.
