DIY Embellished Star Rhinestone Shoes

Oh my! It’s been a long time since I last made some embellished shoes. But here I am again. My girl loves anything sparkling and shiny, she also loves purple so when I saw these little sneakers I knew right away to do. I had to make these Star Rhinestone Shoes.

I’ve always said that I have this thing for embellished shoes, most likely because they are unique and so pretty. My girl, like any women, loves shoes and also loves to have things handmade. We have made quite a team here!

The last embellished shoes I made for her ware the chevron and polka dots ones and she loved it. Not sure why I hadn’t made more after that. But better late than never!

The only bad thing was that she didn’t used it much because it got small for her too quick but we both loved those shoes.

These Star Rhinestone Shoes are super easy to make. I thought because of the use, they might lose the rhinestones and didn’t happen. My girl is not really hard on shoes, so I’m not really sure if the glue is strong enough with regular use. The time these were in use didn’t lose any embellishment but if you try this it would be interesting hear other’s opinion.

Of course there is lot’s of brands and types of glue so it’s hard to say. The glue I used was supposed to be specific for fabrics and the rhinestones onesies and t-shirts I’ve made didn’t come off after several times in washer machine and drier.

So, Let’s see how to make these cute Star Rhinestone Shoes!


  • Cute Sneakers
  • Star rhinestones
  • Regular rhinestones
  • Fabric glue
  • 2 Cute ribbon bows
  • Tweezers

With a towel, remove dust from the sneakers.

Then apply some drops all over the front part of your shoes.

Using your tweezers, stick one star rhinestone on each drop of glue.

Glue as many as you like on that area.

Then using the same process, glue the regular rhinestones all over the back side of the shoes. Again glue as many as you like.

This step is optional. Apply puffy paint on top of the central seam of the sneakers. I didn’t have a steady hand that day so my line is not steady but I still liked the whole result.

When you are done, glue one ribbon bow on each shoe right on top of the cord where the cord holes begin.

Let it dry for 24 hours in a fresh and ventilated place so it dries really well.
