Step 1:

I did not fancy spending hour after hour gluing on every stone, so I got pretty excited when I found these self adhesive Rhinestones all you had to do was pull them off and push them onto the sneakers. I had seen personalised shoes while I was searching for wedding shoes and Loved the idea. I added her married name to the side of the shoes.

Step 2:

I used a thin felt tip pen to write the name as a guideline. I would not recommend this because mine smudged once I added the glue. Maybe a pencil would work better.

Step 3:

I added tarzan grip glue around the words and used my finger to add the Small blue rhinestones to spell out the name.

Step 4:

I also ordered small Diamante rhinestones to fill in between the words

Step 5:

The bottom section of the shoes looked a little plain so I ordered some heart stones to stick on the front.

Step 6:

Heart Rhinestones added to the front.

Step 7:

I also added the date of the wedding on the back of the shoes.
