DIY // Wedding Shoes

Here’s Part 2 of my sister’s wedding shoe series. Previously I did my own bridesmaid’s shoes, and now here’s my sister’s bridal shoes! She’s having a winter theme and her colors are navy blue and taupe, so I bought her these blue suede shoes (!) from Nine West and then we went together to craft stores to get some supplies. We lucked out with this beautiful pendant for the backs of the shoes, and then some individual rhinestones and crystals to mimic the look of ice freezing and melting off the shoe. It’s a heel worthy of Elsa’s wedding.


Here’s the process:

Of course, liberal amounts of E-6000 glue was used, and I had to pry dried glue off my tweezer afterward, because I don’t own any jewelry-making apparatus. Sue me.

Next was the front of the shoe, same thing with the whole ice-crystal freezing effect:

Then there was the dicey moment when I dropped an entire gigantic glob of glue onto the front of the shoe and freaked out. I had to buff out the dried glue with a nail file. I do not recommend being glib with the glue. That stuff means business.

So that’s the final product! Part 3 is the maid of honor’s shoes…
