DIY sandals are a must for the summer, especially if they're made to resemble anything like the Marni jeweled sandals. It really doesn't get any easier than simply gluing on a couple of rhinestones to a simple and affordable pair of shoes.

If you pick up some comfortable and affordable sandals in any color of your choice, you can pair them with some high-quality crystals to add that extra sparkle and avoid the costume gimmick look at the same time. All you'll need are a pair of leather sandals—preferably tan leather—8 27 x 18.5mm rectangular Swarovski crystals, 8 27 x 18.5mm rectangular Swarovski settings, E6000 glue and pliers.

Place the crystals in their settings and use pliers to close the prongs and secure them. Simply glue the stones onto the shoes and set them with a large paperclip. Hello summer!
