Bling Sneakers

Since I recently had my bling supplies out for making my last iphone cover project, I thought I would show how easy it is to bling up a pair of sneakers. This is especially cute on young girls sneakers. Add some fun ribbon in place of laces and you have a quick gift. Since I am just a teenager at heart, I decided to do my own sneakers. 

You will need:

Acrylic flat back gemstones (find at Michael's Crafts, Etsy (under supplies), Ebay).

E-6000 Glue 

Gem pick up tool (I use a wax pencil)

Toothpick

Clean the rubber base of the sneaker.
Apply 1-2 inches of E-6000 Glue with a toothpick.

Use a Gem Pick Up tool to apply gems to sneakers. Work around the toe base and fill in.

Let Dry 24 hours.


Here is an example of a young girls bling pair for sale. The laces were switched with ribbon. Fast and easy gift!

  3. Is there any reason to seal the toes of the sneakers afterwards? I just did a pair of sneakers with bling yesterday and am wondering if they need to be sealed with something to protect them better. Thanks

    1. So sorry for missing this!!! I was out of town. I didn't seal them. It may help to spray them for durability though. I lost a couple stones over a few months, but I will just dab some glue back on and add them. The shoes lose the most because you are so tough on them. The phone covers are a bit more durable.
