DIY: Studded Pointy-Toe Kitten Heels

Happy Sunday evening every one!

Homework? Nah, I’ll just do a DIY and a blog post! That’s pretty much my thought process, I’ll probably regret it tomorrow, but I just had to share my new DIY with y’all! I’ll preface this with a little fact about myself, I am a MAJOR impulse buyer. It is something I struggle with. I can hardly ever turn down a good sale, so when I see one I just buy it! These shoes happened to be one of those things. I was walking through one of my favorite stores, American Threads, when I found in the back, under a shelf (and a layer of dust,) these awesome pointy toe kitten heels for five bucks! SCORE. so I basically had to get them without thinking about what I’d even wear them to or with. One of the re-occurring themes I’ve been seeing on Pinterest, blogs, and almost any store, is studs. There’s something so cool and edgy about them, girls have them on everything! Purses, clothes, jewelry and yes, shoes. So, I ran (aka drove now that I have my license ;)) to Hobby Lobby, got some awesome $1.50 studs, pulled out the old glue gun and got to work! Here are the steps:

The supplies: Shoes (duh), Hot glue gun (I have super glue here because I thought it would be better, but about two studs in and having fingers covered in it with no way to get it off, I decided it might not be the best choice), studs (Hobby Lobby, $1.50 a pack.)

Step 1: Since these were the only inexpensive studs I could find, they are the kind usually used for fabric and have the little pokey things on them. To prep them for being glued, fold down the pokey things to make a flat bottom to stick on!

Step 2: Now that that’s done, fire up your glue gun and add a dab to the part of the shoe you want the stud on! (Note: The studs aren’t going to fit to the shoe perfectly since the toe is rounded and the studs are not, so just focus on them being glued in the middle where the folded metal part is.) Go in a brick-like pattern, adding one more stud to each row.

Step 3: Finish up and wear your work! πŸ™‚ However, before you do, make sure you don’t have any wobbly studs or hot-glue showing and then you’re good to go!

I am not gonna lie, I’m SUPER excited to wear these. You’ll see these styled soon for sure! πŸ™‚ If you attempt studding with anything please share in your comments or on my Facebook page, good luck if you try it! πŸ˜€
