I have reconned a pair of second hand pair of shoes into a pair of glittery dorothy shoes and lets face it, what girl doesn't want glittery shoes? Grin
The were orginally cream with a wooden heel, sorry I forgot to take a before picture.
I basically just gave them a base coat of red paint then applied 2 coats of glitter and then sealed with outsdoor mod podge.
Here are the pictures, enjoy!




Contructive criticism is welcome. Cool

OMG! I LOVE THESE! I want to make a pair right now! What kind of paint did you use? What about the glitter? Was it spray glitter? Or how did you get it so evenly coated?

I used fabric paint as that is what red paint I had to hand. You don't really need to paint them but it made me feel better incase I couldn't get a good coverage of glitter. The glitter as normal glitter from the craft shop, to apply it I basically covered the shoe in PVA glue and then pour on glitter liberally, I did this over a box so I didn't have to worry about making a mess and loosing my glitter. I emptied the 250g pot on multiple occasions. Cheesy
I so recommend you make some. I am going to take them on their first outing tomorrow I think.  Grin
