I made these glitter heels a while back from an old pair of shoes that I accidentally ruined at a wedding. The straps of the shoes were cracked and peeling (they were cheeeeap shoes - $5.00!) after a night of dancing. I guess I just partied too hard for these shoes to handle. Smiley

Instead of tossing them, I decided to cover the shoes in glitter to give them new life. It was a long, long, long process and it took a lot of coats of a glitter/glue mixture, but it was worth it in the end. Here are some pictures of the process and the finished glitter shoes:

You can see more pictures of the process and a full tutorial over at my blog.

Thanks for looking! Smiley

Those are wildly pretty!

My zombie gnome was a 2013 Featured Project, and my KISS gnomes were an August 2014 Featured Project. Thanks for voting for them.
