swarovski™ create your style™ crystal shoes

Step 1
Remove the shoe laces and set aside. 
Step 2
Roughen the rubber toe of each shoe with sandpaper. 
Step 3
Clean the rubber toe of each shoe with rubbing alcohol. 
Step 4
Open each of the crystal packages and pour them out onto the scrap paper. Separate into two equal piles. Mix the crystals in each pile up with your hands. 
Step 5
Spread the crystals in each pile out and then use your hand to shape them to look like the rubber toe of the shoes.Then spread out the back to create a scatter affect.
 
TIP: This provides a pattern for your crystals. Move colors and sizes around as desired. Use tweezers to carefully move the crystals around the pattern.
Step 6
Outline the perimeter of the rubber toe of the first shoe with crystals with E6000® Jewelry & Bead™ glue. Work in small sections. 
Step 7
Attach crystals with E6000® Jewelry & Bead™ glue until the center of the rubber toe is covered. 
Step 8
Squeeze a little of the glue out onto the scrap paper and use a toothpick to add small dabs of glue to the sides of the shoes, starting in a concentrated section up front near the toe and then more separated as you work towards the back, to create the scattered effect. 
Step 9
Add crystals in a vertical strip up the center of the heel on the back of the shoe. 
Step 10
Repeat Steps 6-9 on the second shoe. Let dry for at least 72 hours before wearing. 
Step 11
Replace the laces.
