Start off with:
One pair of hideous shoes. (I did not buy these.)
$12.00 I found in my winter coat.
And you get:
How cute are these?
Now I will show you how.
Cut extra pieces off with an exact-o-knife.
Buy glitter. $7.99 at Roberts (they are going out of business - Hobby Lobby works, too) + 40% off coupon available at register = $5.82
Mix mod podge (I already had)
with the glitter
and begin painting. I will look hideous at first. Don't worry, the mod podge dries clear.
I did 4 coats. I used more glitter mixed in the mod podge on the last 3 coats. I was conservative and nervous with my first mixture. You will figure out what ratio to use.
Tip #1: use LOTS of glitter. More than you think.
Ta Da! Beautiful!
Tip #2: use a shoe with a rough-type of outer material. If you have a pair that are slicky, take a little sand paper to them. Mine have began pealing a little.
