DIY a pair of suede caged sandals with star nailheads

Maybe many female like the things with star element. How about  suede caged sandals with gold 

stars? I had to have them when I saw them at first time.Then I saw the price tag and well, perhaps 

DIY them was a more reasonable option. The biggest hurdle was tracking down large enough stars

 – which actually proved pretty difficult to find. So now that I have done all the hard work for you,

 I hope you give this one a try!

You will need:
a pair of black strappy sandals
a few 30mm faceted gold star nailheads
a few 20mm faceted gold star nailheads
2 sheets of black stiffened felt
a pair of fabric shears
a pair of pliers

Start by folding the prongs into the backside of the stars so that they lay flat.

Squeeze a generous dollop of E600 into the backside of the stars. Press them into the stiffened 

black felt. It’s okay if some glue seeps out the sides since it will be cut out later.

Allow the glue to dry overnight and then using fabric shears, cut the stars out of the felt. This will 

make the stars easy to attach to the shoes – plus, they provide padding so the stars do not scratch 

the feet!

Use a toothpick to apply a thin layer of glue. Attach the larger stars to the straps of the shoe.

Alternate the smaller stars between the larger ones. Continue adding stars around the shoes and 

mirror the pattern with the other shoe.

Dry overnight. And yes, the stars really do stay on the shoes with E6000 glue!

Strap on your new starry sandals!
