DIY: Glitter Shoes
DIY! There is nothing like the feeling of walking into Joanne’s or Michael’s with a project in mind. I bought some plain white shoes from Target about a week ago and had been thinking about jazzing them up a bit. Then I got inspired by Joy the Baker once again by her Summer City Shoes. So luckyily there is a Joannes next to the gym, and I had quite the productive night.
I didn’t know what color I wanted to do so I walked in with open eyes. I saw black glitter and thought that would be pretty cool. Then I saw multi-colored and I knew it was perfect! I only glitterized (that’s totally a word) part of the shoe, but feel free to get glitter crazy and do the whole thing. I might even go back and add more, but I like how they turned out for now.
The equipment I used: White shoes (12.99 at Target), Mod Podge, Glitter, Painters tape, and a Paint brush.
First, tape off the rubber sole of the shoe.
Then mix the glitter and mod podge together into a thick but still spreadable paste (more mod podge than glitter).
Brush the mixture on the area you want to glitterize. The first coat will be pretty light, just to get a good base. Let that dry for 20 minutes, then make coat #2 nice and thick. Once that dries it should be almost done, just might need a few touch ups!
After finishing the back I decided I wanted to have glitter somewhere in the front as well, so I decided to add a little to the lining!
Once everything is dry, take off the tape and viola! GLITTER SHOES!
I am off to go wine tasting this weekend with some of my besties and I am so excited! Now what are you doing still at the computer… go make some glitter shoes!!!
