Today we’re going to create some Beyonce-inspired drip-heel shoes, as I like to call them. I absolutely love these shoes, they are so glamorous and chic. And I even managed to find all the supplies I needed for this DIY for under twenty dollars. So let’s get crafting, so you can get styling like Queen Bey.

Tools and materials:

  • Pair of black stilettos
  • E6000 glue
  • Scissors
  • Rhinestone chain
How to make fringe heels


I decided to start my fringe in the center of the heel. So I held the chain in place and measured out how long the rhinestone chain needs to be. I recommend cutting the chains so they end slightly above the ground. 

Cut chains for both shoes

Cut the chain

I cut about twenty pieces of chain at the length I measured against my heel, which was enough to make fringes on both shoes.

Apply glue

Next, I applied a small amount of glue to the back of the shoe, above the heel. I worked in small sections, so the glue wouldn’t dry before I had a chance to apply the chain.

Attach the chains

I applied each chain individually, pressing it in place with my fingers until it was secure, with about two stones attached to the glue. I continued like this all around the perimeter of the top of the heel, using the seam at the top of the heel to place all the chains neatly in a line.

Trim the chains

I only applied the chains around the heel, but you can keep going as far as you like. Just make sure to cut the chains to an appropriate length so they don’t touch the ground, as the shoe tapers downward. Once I was done gluing, I trimmed any chains that were a bit too long.

Gorgeous! I can’t believe I made these shoes for under twenty dollars when the shoes that inspired them were over five hundred! I hope you enjoyed this tutorial, and if you use my instructions to make your own pair of Beyonce-inspired heels, I would love to see your final result.
