Cara at Carbon Couture shows us how to make some fabulous jeweled heels inspired by Alber Elbaz’s design for the Lanvin Spring/Summer 2009 line. These heels will brighten up your winter, and bring you through spring and summer, so fashion yourself up a pair and step out in style!

You might need to venture beyond your dollar store for the supplies for this high fashion-inspired project, but it will be well worth it! You can find the paint and crystals at your local craft or fabric store (or even at W*l-m*rt… shh, I didn’t say that name).

  • Black Heels (on hand or Cara found at Old Navy – currently $14.99 as of this post)
  • Gold Paint $1
  • Assorted rhinestones/crystals $3 and up
  • Glue (superglue or E6000) on hand
