It’s Saturday evening, hooray! And what better way to bring some sparkle into your weekend than with a bucketful of glitter? I realise I’m a bit late on the glitter-shoe trend, but good shoes never go out of style. This is how happy my glitter shoes make me
If you would like a pair of glitter shoes of your own, you have come to the right place! I am here to show you how to make them. This is a great way to revamp an old pair of Chelsea boots, although you can do it to any pair of shoes.
You will need:
A bottle of glitter
A bottle of PVA glue
An old paintbrush
A container for the glue. You can just use an old yoghurt pot or something.
Acrylic paint for the soles
Some shoes to glitter!
Step 1: Tape over any parts of the shoe you don’t want to be glittery, like the soles. I also taped over the elasticated side of my shoe, so that the original fabric would be showing. Mix equal parts PVA and glitter in a pot. Paint your shoes with this! Leave your shoes to dry, and then paint the next layer. Repeat until you have complete glitter coverage.
Step 2: Paint the soles of your shoe with the acrylic paint. Be careful not to get any on the glitter!
And that’s it! Easy, right?
