DIY: Glitter Shoes

Greetings from a girl wearing Hello Kitty glasses!! >.<

I'll be sharing to you now my very first DIY (do-it-yourself) project. I've been itching to do this for months already, but it's just now that I had the time to get my hands on it. Decided to give life (and glitters) to a pair of black wedges that I've been neglecting for so long!

I'm so in love with the design of its heels! Maybe that's the reason why I'm finding it hard to let go of this pair. Anyway, now on to our easy weezy project! I'm not that good in giving instructions so please bare with me! :)

Materials: glitters, glue, paint brush
You'll be needing newspapers, too!

Place newspapers in the insoles to protect that area of your shoes. Optional: Cover the heels with masking tape to prevent unwanted glitters.

Pour some glitter and glue to a newspaper or disposable bowl. Mix them using a paint brush until you reach your aimed concentration of sparkle. 

Take the mixture and evenly spread it over the entire shoe. Once you're done with the first coat, let it dry before adding up another layer, so you won't get blobs or clumpy parts.

Apply a good coat of plain glue all over the shoe and pour glitters (do it again and again, no need to brush 'em). Afterwards, you'll achieve this...

Once you've attained your desired degree of sparkle, allow your shoes to have an ample drying time.

My not-so-bongga-pero-pwede-na finished product! :p

Hope you liked it, loveys! I'll try to do more DIYs soon, so if you have any ideas or suggestions, comment up or tweet me @listentoarnie
