DIY: Dolce and Gabbana Inspired Jeweled Jelly Sandals

{Images via Elle }

This week I have to the opportunity to participate in DIY Fashion Week with a few other fashionably crafty bloggers. Pulling inspiration from Spring/ Summer 2012 runway collections, we will be sharing creative DIY projects on our perspective blogs throughout the week. I am absolutely, head over heels totally in love with the Dolce and Gabbana Spring RTW 2012 collection. There are SO many DIY inspirations that can be taken from that collection, but the second I saw the jeweled jellies I knew I’d be making myself a pair for the summer. With a little help from my CL by Laundry gladiators I was able to make all my jeweled jelly fantasies come true.

Materials: CL by Laundry Jelly Gladiators (purchase here – only $30), Jeweled Stretchy Bracelets, Glue

Use scissors to snip the elastic and remove the jewels from the bracelet.

Use a strong hold glue (my obvious fave being E6000) to apply jewels to the desired location.

Seriously I was having so much fun! I haven’t been on a swing in years…


Dress: Alice + Olivia, Bracelet: Vintage from my Grandma’s Jewelry Box, Shoes: CL by Laundry

Be sure to check out my other blogger buddies throughout the week as they post projects inspired from their favorite collections.

  7. Ah, so pretty! Love your choice of jewels…I never thought of cutting apart those stretchy bracelets, but they are a much better choice for blingy stuff than those packs of junky jewels they sell at Jo-Anns. Awesome!

    Great job!! As I scrolled,the pic of you actually swinging startled me :D,they look beautiful!

  14. wow, they came out beautiful! It’s so clever the use of those bracelets! The rhinestones bought alone would have been more expensive! Clever,clever,clever!
    I’m always surprised how it costs less to dismount something than to buy the separate pieces! incredible!

    They look great! Could I use a glue gun if I didn’t have the glue you used?
