Here’s that DIY! A couple days ago I sat down and customized these simple nude heels from DSW to include a pearl design on the sides, a cluster of jewels on the front, and a flurry of feathers on the back. Here’s my process.
My sister is getting married in two weeks, and today, I’m doing a DIY project with my bridesmaid’s shoes, because of course I am.
She’s having a winterish wedding, with navy blue and taupe as her colors, and I offered to jewel her wedding shoes for her to make it look like ice crystals dripping from the front of the shoe and the back, and when I told her I’d do her shoes, I also really wanted to do my own.
We’re wearing nude heels, so I bought these dainty Barbie-like heels at DSW for $40 and then had an idea while rummaging through craft stores for jewels: feathers. I saw a bag of spotted feathers that matched both the taupe color of the dress and the nude color of the heels, so I bought a couple bags of those, plus some beautiful big rhinestones and a nude-pearl appliqué. Here are my materials:
I’ll let you guys see the finished product when I’m done! I’m also jeweling the bride’s shoes and I’ll definitely post pictures of that process as well. Can’t wait to see my sister walk down that aisle.
