Step-by-Step Instructions on How to Put Rhinestones on Chuck Taylors

Save

Converse All-Stars shoes are commonly referred to as Chuck Taylors, or simply “Chucks.” You can customize your Chuck Taylors with rhinestones for a little added femininity, using materials you can find at an arts and crafts supply store or at online retailers.

Things You'll Need

  • Converse shoes
  • Pencil
  • Flat-backed rhinestones in a variety of colors
  • Hot glue gun and glue sticks or tacky glue
  • Tweezers
  • Cover a flat workspace with newspaper to protect it from glue.

  • Use a pencil to mark the places on your shoes where you want to place the rhinestones.

  • Place a small dab of hot glue or tacky glue onto the flat back of a rhinestone. Use a dab of glue smaller than the area of the rhinestone’s back so that no glue will spill over.

  • Use tweezers to place the rhinestone on your shoe in the desired position. Press it firmly into the canvas of the shoe.

  • Let the glue dry completely overnight before you move the shoes or wear them.

Tips & Warnings

  • To test different rhinestone patterns, draw a diagram of the shoe before beginning the project.
  • Be careful when using a hot glue gun; the glue can burn your skin.
