I know I have mentioned Pinterest before but my obsession has grown immensely. Since my first discovery, I have spent endless hours pining over various DIY projects and ideas for outfits. My latest obsession has been DIY Glitter Pumps. I tackled this today and I am so glad I did. The results are perfect!
I started with a pair of black pumps that I really don't wear, Mod Podge, Glitter, Sponge brushes, White acrylic paint and bowls.
I got various colors and wasn't really sold on any one color so I decided to mix my own multi-color.
Here is the end results despite the various shades that show in the pictures below.
Next I took the white paint and covered the shoes entirely. I didn't want the black base to affect the shade of the glitter.
Once the paint dried, I added Mod Podge to my glitter until it made a glue like consistency and started painting it on the shoes.
Be sure to keep the glue covered while waiting for the coats to dry.
I did two full coats and touched up any holes once the first two coats dried.
Since I am an extremely anal person, I took an exacto knife and cleaned up the bottom black piece to make it all even and black.
Here is the finished result---the different shades is due to different lighting---
This was super easy and I plan on making a couple more pairs in different colors and maybe some flats. I had glitter left over so after scouring the house for something to paint, I painted a headband (modeled by my sister!) and the clasp of a clutch.
I'm really happy with the results and can't wait to wear these. I need to pick up some sort of sealer to add to the shoes before I wear them out and about. All of the Pinterest things I read on these shoes said they hold up very well. I'll keep you posted!
Off to make my herbs for the turkey and finish our pecan pie. I hope you have a great Thanksgiving!!
