Glittered shoes are everywhere!
They are in all of the stores and you see all of the stars wearing them.
So many crafty ladies have posted tutorials on how to make your own glittered shoes so I just had to get in on all of the fun.
As you know, we are going on a family cruise in January and I thought that some glittered shoes would be a fun addition to my cruise wear wardrobe.
I found these two pairs of shoes at the Goodwill and I thought they would be perfect for this project.
You may remember the red pair, they were a little too tight so I had to stretch them out a bit. You can read about it here.
For this project, you will need:
Acrylic paint, the color of the glitter
The first thing that I did was to clean the shoes real well and then tape the sole and heal with some painters tape.
Then I mixed some green and blue acrylic paint and painted the shoes.
I did this extra step so that I didn’t have to apply as many coats of the glitter paint.
I didn’t take a picture of each step because
I was so excited to start this project that I forgot to it is pretty self explanatory and easy to figure out.
I mixed about 3-4 teaspoons of Modpodge with the fine glitter. You are basically making glitter paint so you want it to be the consistency of paint. If you make it too thick, the glitter will leave big clumps and you don’t want that.
Just paint it all over the shoes and let it dry.
I did two coats of the glitter paint and then just filled in any spots that may have needed a little extra.
Here is the finished product, I just love how they turned out!
For the next pair, I did not paint the shoes first. I mixed several different colors of glitter together and applied two coats.
When it was dry, I then applied the silver glitter to the strap on the top and the heal. Because I did not paint it first, it took lots of coats of the glitter paint.
I am really happy with the finished look.
I did get a little carried away with the glitter paint!
But I just love these shoes and I wear them everywhere.
