Glam Up Your Shoes with Beautiful Swarovski Crystals

Want to glam up your shoes? All you need is some Swarovski crystals, glue and a little know-how!

Adding your own bling to your favourite pair of shoes is both affordable and easy to do. Whether you’re looking to glam up the heels on your summer wedges, or you’re looking to give your favourite pair of trainers a glamorous makeover, it’s easier than you might think.

Below, you’ll discover some great tips to keep in mind when glamming up your shoes with Swarovski crystals.

Choosing the perfect crystals

The type of Swarovski crystals you choose to glam up your shoes is pretty important. If you opt for the wrong type of crystals, the results are unlikely to match your expectations and you could end up wasting your money.

So, which type of Swarovski crystals are best for glamming up a pair of shoes? Well, first you’ll want to check they’re non-hotfix crystals. Hotfix crystals are great for adding a little bling to clothing, but they aren’t a good idea for shoes. This is because they require heat to make them stick. Depending upon the material of the shoes, heat could potentially cause damage. So, stick to non-hotfix, and ideally Swarovski flatback crystals for best results.

As for the design, there are so many to choose from! If you’ve never added crystals to a pair of shoes before, it’s recommended you take a look online for a little inspiration. That way, you’ll get to see which sizes, shapes and designs look best.

Make sure you have the right tools

Of course, you’re not going to be able to glam up your shoes if you don’t have the right tools. With non-hotfix Swarovski crystals, you’re going to need some tweezers, glue, a cotton cloth, a cuticle stick and potentially a jewellery setter. These will make applying and setting the crystals in place much easier.

Crystal application tip

Although the way you apply the crystals will depend upon the type of shoes you’re glamming up, and the material you’re sticking them onto, there are a few pieces of advice to follow.

Firstly, you absolutely must ensure that the shoes are clean! If you try to apply the Swarovski crystals on top of dirt or grease for example, they’re not going to stick. It’s also worth taking time before you start to separate the crystals into groups, turning them upside down so they’re quicker to work with.

It’s a great idea to use Swarovski crystals to glam up your shoes. There are a lot of tutorials out there which can show you exactly how to do it, too. So take a look at our stunning selection of Swarovski crystals, available in small and wholesale packs...
