Do a pair of bling crystal studded sneakers by yourself
After seeing a pair of Swarovski encrusted New Balance sneakers, I was immediately inspired to
DIY my own. I loved how simple the shoes looked – with just the logo covered in subtly colored
rhinestones. So why not make my Nike shoes recently purchased bling by myself?
You will need:
a pair of sneakers
300-400 Swarovski flatback 3.2mm round crystals
400-500 Swarovski flatback 4mm round crystals
jewel setter or skewer and beeswax
Start by squeezing a dollop of E6000 glue onto a piece of cardboard or disposable surface. Use a
toothpick to apply a thin line of glue along a small section of the logo perimeter.
Flip all the crystals so they are all face up. Use the jewel setter, a wax tipped tool, to pick up each
crystal. You can easily DIY your own jewel setter by balling up some beeswax on the tip of a
skewer or toothpick.
Apply the smaller crystals, one at a time, along the perimeter. Add more glue as needed.
Fill in the logo with larger crystals. Smaller crystals may need to be used to fill in any
Allow drying completely before repeating the steps. Use a wet cloth to wipe off any waxy residue
left behind by the jewel setter.
Your crystal studded sneakers are finished . . . bling bling.
