Havaianas Flip Flops with Swarovski Crystals added for summer fun! Recently we visited Vegas for a much needed vacation and were looking for some summer fun! We found some black Havaianas and added some Swarovski flat back rhinestones to them!
At first this seemed like an easy DIY then we struggled for a bit and in the end found that it is a great summer project for anyone to try! WE ended up using a super glue called Loctite Super Glue (Gel version). It took us sometime to get the hang of it, so we recommend practicing before doing a full pair for a gift! We were thankful these were for a trying out job!
Some tips we found….
A. when scrapping off the logo and the ridges use both an Xacto knife and a piece of sandpaper. (We tried only the knife and some stones never did lay flat)
B. roll up a sock or anything similar so that the straps will lay flat, snug and remain in place while working.
C. Lay out a few stones at a time before gluing them down. (There are times that you have to leave a little space so that the pattern can continue the same.)
D. Even though the solid look is amazing to look at it is harder to keep them nice and perfectly aligned. We would recommend leaving a very tiny space in-between the stones.
