Naturally, we were excited about the project, as the results exude that global wanderer vibe we love. Bonus: it’s incredibly easy too!

Etro Stone-Adorned Leather Flat Sandals ($1360, 212.317.9096)
-Forever 21 Metallic-Trimmed Gladiator Sandals ($15)
-2 Druzy Agate Stones ($10 each)
-Krylon Gold Leafing Pen ($7)
-E-6000 Adhesive ($3)
-1 craft stick
Use the gold leaf pen to gild the sides of the druzy agate stones. (Note: you may want to match the color of your paint pen to your sandals.)
Squeeze a dollop of glue on the backside of the agate stones and spread evenly in the center with a craft stick.
Press the stone onto the middle of the sandal’s center strap and hold for approximately 30 seconds. Let dry completely before wearing. Repeat on other sandal.
Let your newly embellished sandals take center stage with an airy white dress for your next farmer’s market outing.
