Crocs are one of the best-ever shoe designs for kids. They are easy to put on and easy to clean. If you're feeling indulgent you can buy those little button do-hickeys to pop into the holes. But those are remarkably expensive for what you get, a little hunk of plastic.
M & S wanted a little bling on their shoes and when they saw these big packs of flower buttons and sparkles on our latest venture to retail-land they knew that they had found what they were looking for.
I armed myself with a hot glue gun and put glue spots onto the shoes as directed by M & S. They dropped the buttons and sparkles onto the glue and I pressed them down. Remarkably, the hot glue does not melt the croc foam and the glue stays stuck. I tested both sets of crocs before we got started. One set of shoes are faux-crocs, the other are the real deal, neither melted.
It was a fun, inexpensive project and now my girls have one-of-a-kind crocs that they are going to proudly wear to school tomorrow.
