Turn simple flats into studded statements

 

 

We took inspiration from the Vince Camuto flats above. These punky pretties retail for $98, but you can make over a tired pair you already own—or pick up a cheap style at Walmart or Target—for practically pennies.

 

What you’ll need

A pair of shoes (we like ballet flats, but any pair from sneaks to strappy sandals will do)

Glue (we like super glue, like all-purpose Gorilla Glue)

Metal studs (find ‘em at a craft store)

Newspaper to spread over your work surface

 

What you’ll do

First, spread newspaper over your work surface. Pull out your shoes. If you’re using an old pair, dampen a rag with warm water and tidy up any stains or dirty spots. You can use permanent markers or shoe polish to fill in scuffs and make them look as good as new. Then, using chalk or a soft pencil, sketch out exactly where you want to place your studs.

 

(Note: You can of course do this free hand, but just remember, mistakes made with super glue are permanent!)

 

Done? Grab your glue and a pile of studs and get to work. You could use a variety of different sizes and shapes, or stick to a basic small circle, as seen in the photo above. Go for spikes, jazz it up with sparkly rhinestones—whatever suits your fancy.

 

When you’e finished, leave your shoes alone for 24 hours so they can completely dry. Then toss on a pair of skinny jeans, grab a moto jacket and slip ‘em on. Time to hit the town, you punky princess, you!
