Do You Want Unique Embellished Slides? Do It Yourself!

Hey Cuties,

Memorial Day has arrived and that is the official kick-off of the summer season.  The pools have opened, the motorcycle season has officially begun and the nail salons are jam packed. The folks that neglected their feet during the winter months thanks to Uggs have reemerged for pedicure season and they are getting in formation. Thanks to the Puma’s latest partnership with singer Rihanna, The FENTY® PUMA® by Rihanna collection has made slide sandals all the rage. They started out with satin bows, then furry slides and lastly jelly slides.

After the release of the collection, slides have been given new life. I have a pair of athletic Adidas slides, but the Velcro strap just isn’t cute.  With the new slide trend, I decided to get in on the action. I want to be cute and stylish and in this case trendy without paying a lot for my muffler.  The FENTY® PUMA® by Rihanna slide collection retails for $90. I’m not judging those that purchase, I’m just giving you another perspective.

Supplies: Slides, Glue, and Embellishments

I ordered these slides from Amazon for $19.99. I wear a size 8 but I got a size 9, they fit perfectly.

I already owned these embellishments but you can get them from the craft stores, Amazon and or Ebay. All of my embellishments have flat backs.  When using E6000 proper ventilation is essential, work near a window and use a face mask.

In progress…

Once I got started I didn’t like the way the rhinestones looked so I switched them out for pearls.

I love the way they turned out.  My original thought was to use a few embellishments but as I continued to work I like the junk kind of look.  I kept going with it and naturally I had to put my signature name on them.  I love to make things my own and that is why I love a good DIY.
