Step This Way

Being snowed in for three days I wanted to get some items checked off my to-do list, the main one being that I wanted to start printing and assembling our invites however someone *cough*Kristian*cough* bought the wrong ink cartridge for the printer so that nipped that idea in the bud.

Instead I decided to take some time and bedazzle my wedding shoes. I really wanted to add a bit of sparkle to the bottom of my shoes which I think will make for some cute pictures. So I took the pack of rhinestones and adhesive I bought at WalMart a few weeks back and went to work.


(My wedding shoes aka my something blue)

(Right shoe reads "I DO" and the left is our wedding date- 05 22 10)

(Some subtle sparkle)

I've mentioned before that I'm not very crafty or much of a DIYer. This is pretty much the extent of my skills. Since these were individual rhinestones I had to really take my time...and my tweezers to get these glued in place. Overall I'm pretty happy with how they turned out.

I also bedazzled one of the items I've bought for each of my bridesmaids which I plan to show in another post at a later date. I'm thinking of taking the rest of the rhinestones to help dress up our invites or programs. We're suppose to get ANOTHER 6-10 inches of snow tomorrow night so who knows what else I may end up bedazzling if I continue to be housebound. The cats should probably hide now.

I love the bedazzled shoe look. I really wanted to do it to my wedding shoes, but they are so flat that the sparklies would last about 10 feet before ripping off. You did a great job!

I love your shoes and the color and the bling...they're fabulous. I too want to put something on the bottom of my shoes but I'm not sure what yet. I don't think I'm going to use "I do." But not positive on which route to go. We'll see I guess.
