Step 1

Prepare your workspace

To ensure the rhinestone embellishment process is as smooth and enjoyable as possible make sure you have a large, flat, well-lit work surface, where you can spread out your materials and leave the work in progress to dry overnight.

Step 2

Plan out the design

Before applying the Swarovski Crystals, plan out the design. In this instance the crystals will flow in a symmetrical spider web style, branching out into a bat wings silhouette with a heard shape in the centre. To guarantee symmetry we recommend cutting a template out of card along with a separate small heart shape template, which will act as guides for where to place the glue.

Step 3

Prepare the boot

First ensure the boot is completely clean and dry, ready for the glue. The best glue for the project may vary depending on the material the boot is made of. In this instance the faux suede texture lends itself to Ninja SuperTite Fusion Tac, which is an industrial strength fabric glue. 

Step 4

Prepare the glue

Fill the Syringe with enough SuperTite Fusion Tack Glue for your project, be careful to not take more glue than you need. The easiest way to do this is to remove the plunger from the back of the syringe and then slowly squeeze the glue into the tube, so that the glue gently runs down one side without covering the opening at the other end. It is important that air can pass out the other end without affecting the glue inside at this stage. Then reinsert the plunger as carefully as you can – you will face resistance because the seal needs to be airtight, the plunger is successfully reattached when you hear it pop into place.

Step 5

Guard against air bubbles in the glue syringe

Once the plunger is securely back in, you are likely to have a section of air inside the syringe. To fix this simply hold the syringe vertically so that the glue slides down away from the opening at the top and gently push on the plunger, pushing the air out until there is only glue left inside. You can then attach the needle tip, completing the syringe.

Step 6

Apply the rhinestones

Using your cardboard templates as a guide, place the rhinestones that sit at the end of each of the wing tips and the around the heart shape first. Once these crystals are in place the rest of the design is as simple as connect the dots. Use the wax picker tool to pick up and place the rhinestones and take care to only use a small amount of glue for each crystal.

Step 7

Do one side of the heel at a time

Allow each side of the boot to fully dry before flipping the boot over and doing the embellishment on the other side. This will prevent accidentally dislodging rhinestones that are not yet fully set into place.

Step 8

Repeat for the other boot

Repeat this process for both boots and check your work regularly to ensure symmetry as much as possible and then allow the crystals to fully dry overnight.
