I had this idea awhile ago.. it was one of those random things that pops into your head and you think, "oh, that might be cool.." but you aren't planning on doing it anytime soon. BUT then I saw this challenge, and I had to try it! So I went over to Nordstrom Rack and found some metallic-y ballet flats in my size for $11.90.. perfect!
This is what they looked like before:


Then after TONS of starburst wrappers, mod podge, and lots of snipping with tiny scissors, they were magically transformed into these!




I am amazed they came out so well, and they are definitely safe for wearing (yep, the mod podge holds up just fine!) so I'll probably wear them everywhere! Yay!



blog entry: Starburst Wrappers? Ballet Flats? they go together.. how?

these rock!  I've seen alot of mod podged shoes lately and these are the only ones I'd actually wear!

I have some old red flats from old navy that I never wear, so I might be trying this myself!  Smiley
