DIY: Embellished Pumps

The catch on of my favourite statement necklaces broke a few months ago and it was forever banished to the I-can’t-bring-myself-to-throw-this-away drawer… until now.

What better way to recycle broken pieces of jewellery than to embellish a pair of plain (and boring) pumps!

You’ll need:

  • A pair of pumps
  • An old or broken necklace
  • Strong fabric glue


Step 1: Take your necklace apart using scissors or hand snips and divide the embellishments evenly between each shoe.


Step 2: Place a generous amount of fabric glue on the back of each embellishment and press them firmly onto your shoes one piece at a time. It’s a good idea to start with the larger pieces and fill in any gaps with the smaller pieces. Once you’re happy with your design, leave to dry overnight.


et voilà!
