DIY: STUDDED WEDGES

Wedges are the perfect solution for me in footwear terms, they give me that neccessary boost of height and that lovely apparent lenghten of the leg without leaving me with a lack of stability and awfully swollen feet. 

Therefore upon finding this gorgeous pair of plain black wedges, conveniently the day before I was going to head off to Clothes Show, I was incredibly over-excited and began swooning like some sort of shoe-addict (which I, of course, am not!)

Anyway my new addiction to SuperGlue (sounds way worse than it actually is) led to me planning my next DIY project. 



ALL YOU'LL NEED
     +plenty of small thin rustic looking studs (in this case, I've taken studs that were once on a dress)
     +Superglue
      +and a steady hand and some patience is always useful too!





























My chosen studs PLUS...





























...some trusty adhesive to stick the studs to the heel of the wedge. I chose to create a line of studs along the seam between the heel and the suede of the actual shoe.


And your done, easy as that! An expensive looking pair of wedges for (as long as the original wedges you buy are cheap, mine were £10) a tiny price. Not forgetting you could get yourself a lot more wear out of a pair of shoes you feel you've 'over-worn'.

Love this idea! I've recently ordered some studs that your can pop through shoes with a nice round back on them so they don't scratch your feet and I'm hoping to stud a pair of pumps, making them topshopesque! Haha. DIY's are the way forward, such a cheap way of updating your wardrobe x
