Glitter Shoes Tutorial

I saw some Glitter shoes a few months ago and fell in love sadly I didn't buy them and then when I went to buy them every store was out!!!! even the online store was sold out. Not only that but they were $40 which for this cheep momma is really steep so this is my solution! I made my own.

I started with buying some CHEAP shoes. Yes they are a terrible color! hunter green, no thanks. but i just went for comfort and their shape. I paid $10.00 for them on clearance.

Next Tape off everything you DO NOT want glittered for me that was the inside (of course) I used some plastic bags to fill it in then put tape from the inside of the shoe. I would have preferred using scotch tape but all I had was packaging tape so that's what I used.

I also taped off the sole and the tip of the heal.

Then take this spray adhesive and spray the shoe! make sure to get it sprayed well, I would do it out side so you don't have to breath it in. 

Take your glitter It really doesn't take as much as I thought these two little things was enough with quite a bit left over.

Place the shoes covered in adhesive and place them on a piece of paper. I folded it in half so that I could easily recycle the glitter that doesn't stick back into the containers. Then Cover the shoes! Repeat the adhesive and glitter step at least twice for good coverage.

Give it a little while to dry  

Remove the tape you may need to do some touch up which I did with tack glue and the glitter. Then spray with this finish on them. This keeps the glitter from just falling off and helps protect them water and such. I did 2 coats of the finish .

Here is my finished product! I Just Love them and can't wait to wear them to church!
