DIY: Miu Miu Jeweled Shoes

I love Miu Miu and their jeweled shoes.  Every collection that comes out, there’s a pair I die for and wish I could have.  When I saw this DIY by HonestlyWTF, I kept in in my archives and been meaning to share it.    They did a pair of boots which I love, but I would love to do a pair of heeled sandals (as the first Miu Miu pair above).

Here is the list of items needed:

  • a pair of heeled shoes
  • 40-50 large and medium (10-15 mm) multi-shaped rhinestones
  • 30-40 small (3-6 mm) round rhinestones
  • E-6000 glue
  • tweezers
  • small dish or container
  • toothpick
  • flat nose pliers
  • flat nose pliers (optional)

Some pics from their tutorial – but if you want more detailed info, link is here:  

My top three picks for heeled sandals for the project:

All from Zara and $69 and below.  The first pair I have in blue color block as seen in this post.     

You can buy different rhinestones/crystals online and here is a size chart that helps with sizing as I needed this when I looked up crystals.  

My goal now is to find a beads store in Chicago where I can pick different shapes and make sure I love them.  There are a ton of vendors online where you can get Swarovski flat black crystals, but I tend to like to see things in person.  

What do you think?  Is this one you would try?

    This is such a great DIY! I love rhinestones, especially on my shoes 😀 They did a really good job with the boots. The stones look great against the gold heel too.

    I love Miu Miu and their jeweled shoes too.And when he returned? There are miumiu some words that you just do not want to see if everything is in the product description, does not it? But one thing I learned for the all the years of fashion blogs, and more recently "shoes you would like from the" topics in the forum that the tastes of the people are so different that a person can be another person Shoepervillain ShoeperheroI, that feels like a set-top value of the fabulous shoes to you, now lined say There are some words that you just do not want to see miumiu if everything is in the product description, does not it?
