Hi Bees after admiring all the clever Bees that strass their own shoes, I thought I will give it a go.
-Started with a plain pair of white shoes,
-Painted the soles red,
-Spray painted the top silver,
-Strassed using clear chrystals from Rhinestone Biz in 10ss, 12ss, 16ss & 20ss
What do you think?
Now to finish the second shoe

Wow, what a transformation! And it doesn’t really look DIY at all, not to me anyway. Just like you bought them like that. Great job!

@Scar_cats_tic: I tried red leather spray to start with but it didn’t work because of the hill, so I striped that and used red Josonja’s artist colour and a light varnish on top to give it some shine.
The pictures don’t do it any justice, the crystals really sparkle as they catch the light from different angles and the gaps between the stones are not visible.

They actually look great. Most of the DIY ones look kinda crappy, but you did awesome!
