Buy some size 20 Swarovski crystals and some E6000 glue and stick them on?

E6000 works very well on rhinestones. If you haven’t ordered them yet- I really like rhinestoneguy.com and you should make sure you get flat-backed. Size and color are up to you- but the smaller the stones, the more you’ll need and the more time consuming. 

 

I’d recommend curved jewelers tweezers and applying to glue with a very tiny paintbrush- just a cheap one. You can mark out the shape with painter or artisit tape if you need a bit of a guide.

Also just need to add, when using E6000 you MUST br in a very well ventilated room and wear a face mask as the fu are potent, however they will not fall over. Ever.

Just FYI mix and match different sizes of the swarovski crystals and this is gonna take a really long time. I tried to strass some heels and it took hours and hours and I ended up leaving them half done.
