Need Ideas

aka_raeanneSeptember 29, 2007

As a joke I am going to decorate a pair of birkenstock sandals for my friend. She is very glitzy - I know of course that I could use rhinestones, but does anyone else have any ideas or has anyone ever done something similar to this? Thanks for any help.

Someone here did the sandals with the fuzzy yarn on them. It's like a mohair (soft). Go to Joann's or Michael's craft store and they have setups for the sandals (if not taken down already) and/or ask the clerks for help. I'm sure they'll know what you're talking about. Sorry I couldn't be of more help. (Or look up decorated sandals on the web.)

Thank you Sal for your reply. I did do a search on the internet, but kept coming up with rhinestone studded or handpainted - nothing different. The mohair yarn sounds interesting - I will search that and ask at Joannes. Thanks so much.
