I absolutely LOVE knock-off's and I have a list nearly a million years long! So I am so excited for Thursdays! So I can knock my list down!!! With Spring somewhere around the corner... (What's up Utah??? It is May!) I thought it would be great to cross of these gladiator sandals from my list!!!
Here is what inspired me. I adore turquoise. Like I love it. I really wouldn't mind if my wedding ring had a turquoise stone in it. I really love it that much!!! (But I love my diamond even more...)
Then grab some cabochons. At first I used three turquoise colored ones in a row, but I liked the contrast of having the larger black one. So that is what I ended up using. If I had a white gladiator sandal I would have used a brown/green combination. But the blue and gold against the copper was screaming at me. Hot glue the cabochons right onto the sandal.
Now, you could leave it as is. That is if you want your stones to fall right off the second you put them on. The Hot Glue isn't going to do it alone. Grab some scrap fabric and cut it to the shapes of the stones.
And then hot glue it to the back of the stone and across the sandal strap to the other side of the stone.
Yep. That will do. Slide them on and enjoy their beauty. I love how simple they turned out. But what a bold statement they make at the same time.
And let me tell you how huge this is. Because gladiator sandals aren't my thing... I think it's like wearing a thong for your feet... That being said. They are comfortable...
And don't mind the fact for some reason I had my feet way off the back of the sandals to take the photo. I guess I wasn't paying much attention to that. I was worried about the sandal!
What do you think? Let me know if you try it out! I would love to see them if you do!!!
