DIY glitter shoes


So first day of fall officially just started. But as you all San Francisco weather is just really weird in anyway possible. So I'ts warmer right now than our summer. I went shopping for some fall clothes but I'm still waiting for the right temperature to come in to be able to wear them. Recently, I was inspired by all thing glitter. Being bored all the time right now, I decided to do some DIY. And here it is!

I saw a DIY from honestlyWTF. So I tried to incorporate the tricks she did into my own personal style. I bought these flats from american eagle months ago and I haven't worn them for the longest time because I don't really like those popping things at the top. I just want it plain. So this is what I did. At the top is the things that you need. 

old flats
 glitters (get the bigger grains)
paint brush
scissors
mixing bowl
mod podge ( I used a different one coz that's the only thing I have. but mod podge is better!)




cutting off the weird things at the top




start mixing the glue and glitter.


should look like this. its going to be really thick because of the glitter. (you can add some drops of water to soften the mixture.)


layer the glitters. as you put the first layer let it dry. then apply another layer and dry and another layer then let it dry. it's up to you how many layers you coat it. just make sure all the surface if the shoe is covered. 
tip: use a blow dryer to fast forward the drying process!



here's the finish product!


I had some extra mixture so I did it to an old belt too! matchy!


Christian Louboutin pigalle flats

what do you think? do you like it? 

have a great weekend!

  2. OMG Joanna, you are so creative. I think I'd be too scared to cut the bows off my shoes. hehe, You seriously did an amazing job with these glitter flats. They look high end- I would never have known you did it yourself. Nice work and the matchy belt is such a cute idea.
