DIY: Spiked Sandals

I’ve waxed poetic about my love of spikes before, so when I came across this DIY from Fashion after Breakfast, I got really excited! So excited, in fact, that I immediately went to Target to get the sandals and studsandspikes.com to get the spikes. Sidenote: telling friends you’re waiting on an order from studs and spikes is hard to do without giggling.


It was incredibly easy to go from this:
to this:



It took me about an hour using a random pair of scissors to poke holes for the studs, which screw in. I used size 13 and 16 spikes.



I started with a spattering of spikes, then decided more is more and more is better.



Are you going to give it a try?

    You can hurt someone with these. Like maybe yourself. What if you fall? Although, if someone dares to step on your tow, aren’t they in for a surprise???
