DIY Candy Crush Sandals

True Craft Confession: I bought these plastic gems at Michaels a few weeks back with plans to use them for a mosaic inspired fashion DIY.  I've had these espadrilles for a while, but I never wear them because they're kind of boring.  It wasn't until I took the pics of the finished sandals that I realized they look just like Candy Crush Saga!  Too fun!  The colors here are vibrant, not quite neon, but very punched up.  You could use clear foil backed stones for a totally different effect. I tried a variety of adhesives, but the best by far was Aleene's 7800. It sets quickly and it's thick, so the stones don't slip around on the straps while they dry.  Take your time and work methodically.  I tried picking the stones up and dipping them in the glue, but I found that spreading the glue on with a crayon and placing them by hand worked best.  When you finish, just shave off the end and your crayon will be back in business! 

You will need:
Black sandals with cross over canvas straps
Multi-Colored plastic flat back gems
Crayon
 Step one: Dig through the gems and pull out the smaller sizes.  Brush your shoes off to be sure they're clean.  Step two: Squeeze a dab of glue on scrap paper.  Use a crayon to spread a thin layer of glue across the center back of the gem, you don't have to work to the edges, when you place the gem down the glue will spread. Start with the front straps.  Step three: Work on the upper strap. I only decorated the front upper strap, because the back strap gets more friction and I don't want my gems to fall off!  Step four: Finish both shoes.  Allow to dry overnight.  

That's it!  A boring pair of sandals comes to life with inexpensive plastic gems and a little
Aleene's 7800 adhesive!  Best of all, you can finish these in about 30 minutes.   Fun, fast, fabulous...and affordable!  What's not to love?  I'm seriously crushing on these and I don't even play Candy Crush Saga.
