For what you want to do glue should be fine. Careful of tacky glues, flat back crystals can pop off pretty easy. and super glue can dull the crystals and dries white sometimes. I personally love the hot fix crystal for my projects. You don’t need swarovski, other crystals sparkle quite a lot. I’ve used crystazzi, and they are very close to the look of swarovski, for a much cheaper price.

@weeonebride: I’m going to do the same thing to a blue suede shoe! I’m still looking for the best glue before I start. I added some rhinestones to my prom shoes a few years back but those were clear plastic shoes so a basic craft glue worked fine.

So far the glue that won’t work, any tacky glue, super glue, or gorilla glue. Once I find the best glue I’ll let you know!
