DIY shoe rhinestone help...

I'm sure this may have been asked before but Im going to ask anyways lol. I'm wanting to put rhinestones on my shies but I have a few questions. I'm going to be completely cover the shoes so I want a glue that will really hold the stones on. Does anyone know of what kind of glue would be the best to use for this? And what are the best rhinestones to use that are really sparkly but not to expensive? Any suggestions welcome! TIA!

people say that e6000 works, but I have found that it dries EXTREMELY quickly, so you have to work very fast. I don't know if you could use a hot fix tool on shoes.

Pwani20 used hotfix crystals on her shoes with a hotfix tool. The hotfix tool - hero - you can buy at Michaels. It's the Jolee Brand and will be near the crystals on the bottom of the shelf. Use a 40% off coupon. It's like 20 bucks without the coupon.


She used 10ss hotfix swarovski crystals from islandgirl on ebay. She ordered 1440 for 10ish dollars w/ free shipping.
