Blingin' Fantastic D.I.Y Shoes



Have any of you noticed the recent craze on Facebook for blinged out converse style shoes or is it just me? I decided to give them a go myself because...well...why not?! I bought these grey converse knock off's from Dunnes Stores for €10, they also currently have them in red, navy, white and brown.

You can get these Stickcons in a variety of colours from www.stickcons.com for €12. They could not have been any easier to apply. It took less than five minutes and three easy steps. Remove from packaging, place where you desire and press firmly for a moment to stick them in place. Honestly, fool proof! They also stick to fabric and other surfaces. I was left with a few extra strips which I can use to bling anything else, I was thinking maybe my phone cover.

There you go, let me know what you think in the comments below. It's a lot less time consuming than using a glue gun and individually placing each gem on so a big thumbs up from me. I also have a pink set of Stickcons so I might use them to spruce up a pair of shoes for a friend. I think that would make a cute gift, as long as I get the right shoe size!!

Love,
Sarah
