I’ve seen the sticky back ones that usually come on a sheet in a pattern already but I’d be afraid they would fall off. I planned to find a small package or loose flack back rhinestones and super glue them to my shoes. I like the size they use for nail decorations, you can find packages of clear or multi color ones with the manacure stuff, or larger ones in craft sections of stores. I was wanting to find tiny blue ones so I’ll have to buy them online. I wear a size 5 to 6 shoe depending on the shoe so there’s not much realestate to work with.

I just used the rhinestones that come on a sheet, I put a tiny drop of super glue on the back of each one so that they would stick.

I was planning on doing them myself also like MissPopcorn. I was just going to hit up michaels and design something

Joann Fabrics sells pre-made individual sticky rhinestone letters. They come in a tiny package with one uppercase and one lowercase initial, for like $3. They don’t fall off and they look very nice. They even have a couple different colors like clear, blue, and pink.

When I have made things with rhinestones, I have always used model glue. For some reason i think it sticks better than super glue.

I recently invested $30 in a Bejeweler Pro on eBay for hotfix crystals.  Hotfix crystals and rhinestones stay put (if you don’t overheat them like I did in the beginning…).  But doing letters can be tricky.  I recommend the pre-stick as well.  I doubt they will fall off, they are usually made to go on clothing if I remember correctly, and if they can survive the washing machine I think gently used high heels should be okay for one night.
