I was first turned onto these Steve Madden heels when I saw them being worn by Emma Roberts on American Horror Story: Coven this season. They were sparkly (!!) and the perfect pair of glam kicks to add to the wardrobe! (For those American Horror Story fans, you can head over HERE to HelloGiggles to read this post with the TV tie in!)
They were Steve Madden (Spycee) and when I saw them on her feet I wanted to craft my own pair...so I did!!
Here's how you make them...
The key to these shoes are the straps and I found a pair of heels that were virtually identical (GoJane Ladder Up Heels for $19!) in style to the pair that Emma wore.
On top of the shoes, you'll also need...
1. E6000 Glue
2. Bead Tweezers/Toothpicks
3. Crystals (these are Swarovski crystals in assorted sizes)
The gist of this project is to dab the crystals and affix them to the straps – I put a bit of glue on a paper plate, dabbed the back of the stone, and then affixed it to the strap of the shoe.
The pattern of the stones on the original pair were just a mix of different sizes scattered on the straps, so I put different sizes of stones down in a non-consistent pattern.
This is definitely something that takes a little bit of time but is the perfect thing to do while catching up on your DVR (did that) or waiting for pumpkin bread to bake (did that too), with some help from pals, or my mom in this instance, but look at the results…
A glitzy DIY pair of heels á la Emma Roberts crafted in a few hours.
I can't stop staring at them!!
The perfect shoes for New Year's Eve or just to glam up a pair of jeans. I'm having maj shoe love!!
