I saw a bunch of glittery heels this winter and wanted a pair of my own... but I couldn't find the right pair. After doing a little research into how to do it myself, I took the plunge! My first project on Craftster! I sanded the parts of the shoe that were to be glittered, then used several coats of a mod podge + glitter mixture (custom blended from several glitters) until I was satisfied with the coverage. Here are some before/detail pictures!





The glitter doesn't rub off at all and the shoes are still really flexible. Thanks for looking!

These are beautiful! I especially love how you left the toe black, it adds a nice contrast.

Those are cute. I love blue glitter shoes! Way better than red in my opinion.
