Glitter Shoes



What do you think about my new shoes? I love them! I think that gold glitter shoes are actually very versatile, they match alot of things.
My hubby saw them and said "what are you, nine?" LOL, I don't care what he thinks, I love them anyway. :)

Here is the before pic, These shoes have seen much better days, I got the tips replaced on the heels, But felt that they looked to worn out. I did not want to get rid of them, since they are so comfortable and I paid a bit of money on them:

Here are the supplies I needed:

I used some masking tape and taped off the sole of the shoes:

I took some modge podge and poured it in a plastic cup:

I put plenty of glitter into the modge podge (about 1/4 of the jar):

Mix it up:
Spread a thick layer of modge podge onto the shoe:

Like so:
They will look like this, let dry for about an hour:

I covered the glue while the first coat dried:

Here is how the first coat looks like once mostly dry:

Then I spread one more thick layer of the glitter modge podge onto the shoe:
I let dry completely and peeled off the tape:

Then I washed my brush and used plain modge podge to seal the shoe:


Done:

  2. I love these! Does the modge podge crack when the shoe bends?

    Found you via The Shabby Nest. Pinned you on Pinterest!

  3. modge podge doesn't dry hard (from the few projects I used it on) the shoes are still are very soft and flexible. I made a belt using modge podge and it is still very stretchy, but still holds the beads in place, you can see that here: http://suburbsmama.blogspot.com/2011/05/beaded-elastic-belt.html

  24. OK these are fantastic! I have been longing for an adult sized glitter shoe for years, ever since Targe' starting selling them for little girls... thanks for this i am so doing it!!! Off to follow you and your shoes!

    ReplyDelete
  25. These are so great!! I would never have poured the glitter in the modge podge but thats way better than trying to sprinkle it on. Like I would have done. How do they hold up? I'm interested to know if the glitter is flaking off. Thanks so much for sharing this tutorial!!--connie, measuredbytheheart.com

  30. LOVE THESE! I always drift to the glitter covered shoes in stores and most of the time they are way out of my meager budget. Next time I find a pair of cute, but plain, shoes for cheap I plan on trying this. So excited! Thanks for the incredible idea!
