Since I will have nicer shoes, I want my bridesmaids and MOH to also wear shoes but I did make them these for beach pictures and for whenever else they want to wear them. 

     

    These were fairly simple to make even though I had never done any beading. I purchased all my supplies at Michael's (with a nice coupon!) 

     

    Supplies:

    Beads

    Clear Elastic Thread

    Beading Needle

    Patience and no kids! lol (We have an 18 month old son and this project was definitely done after bed time)

     

    All I did was string the beads onto the elastic using the beading needle and once it was long enough to fit around my ankle made a knot. Then I added the beads for the long part that goes over top my foot. Once that was at a good length, I added the smaller beads that go around the toe. Then, I made a circle with the small beads to create a loop for the toe, tying a knot between the toe loop and the long string of beads. That's it! I know it sounds kind of complicated, but I can't really type the instructions clearer. It's really trial and error, though. Just basically string beads long enough to fit your foot and you'll be good to go. 

     

    I made myself an ivory pair:

     

     

    Please excuse my unmanicured, not-so-cute feet. My feet really don't look THAT dinosaur-ish in real life...it's hard to take a good picture of your own foot! lol

     

     

    My bridesmaids, MOH, and flower girl will all wear purple:

     

     

     

    Happy Planning, ladies! I know this one is a little confusing as far as my instructions, so please let me know if you have any questions! :)

      I picked out a pre-maid pair on Etsy, but one pair was $30 which I thought was a little pricey. Can any of you tell me approximately how much you spent to make each pair? I love the idea of making them myself, it seems more personal!

      It's definitely cheaper to make your own! I don't remember exactly what it cost me but I know I got all my beads at michaels and waited until they were on sale and combined a coupon. I would guess approximately $6/ set of sandals. :)

            These are awesome!  They look delicate but the elastic is actually very durable!  Thanks for sharing, you're very creative!

              Barefoot sandals are great! I might be making them instead of buying them since they tend to be on the pricey side :) Great Job!
