About a month ago I took Kellie shoe shopping. I blame this on my youth - I was NEVER allowed to get the cute shoes, just the shoes that would last the longest (and in a size to big so they would last longer) I have to say the hubs was none too pleased when we returned with these glitter shoes. She REALLY wanted them, and she is an ONLY child!!
The fact that I also purchased her some practical sneakers (stans glitter) as well was no excuse.
"They won't last a month!" He said.
Unfortunately, this is one of those times hubs was 100% correct.
After a few weeks the super cute shoes looked more like this...
So I found a tutorial (on Pinterest of course) on how to make your own glitter shoes. I took this concept and, as much as it pained me to use the most dreaded craft item of all time (glitter), decided I could 'fix' Kellie's poor shoes.
You would need:
Glitter - she was wearing her shoes (as she has everyday for the last month) and we matched the color as best we could.
Disposable foam brush
The glitter paste was spread on the glitter-free portions of the shoes - I then waited about an hour and added another coat.
Once there was enough glitter I took the shoes outside and sprayed them with a light coat of the spray adhesive. I was going to skip this step, but learned that mod podge is NOT water-resistant! So you MUST use the spray adhesive as well if you want these to last!
