4 Ways to embellish SUMMER SHOES Part 4: The Studded Sandal DIY

5

Although we used an iron on trim for this DIY, we wanted to ensure that our neon studs would stay on for the long haul. We initially tried using an iron, and then a hot glue gun, but we ultimately decided that E-6000 was our best bet. That’s the best part about DIY projects, you’re constantly learning and bettering your skills as you go along. We’re more than happy to pass on our useful tips and tidbits with our blogger community. Feel free to share some of your favorite DIY tips with us as well!
