I’ve been eager to do this DIY project for the longest time – “GLITTER SHOES“!! I went on a quest to find Glittery shoe projects on Pinterest eons ago and had bookmarked a couple from LoveMaegan, a blogger I love love and love! Here are two of her simple projects: 1. DIY Glitter Cap Toe Shoes, and 2. Glitter Sneakers – Miu Miu Inspired. I also found this another Glitter shoe DIY on A Little Glass Box. Anyhow, projects aren’t that different from one another; they just give you a few designs to toggle with.
So as my little Princess’s (my niece’s) birthday approached, I had the perfect gift idea!!!
I started off with the basics:
- Mod Podge
- Foam sponges (for glue & glitter application)
- Glitter (silver & pink)
- Cardboard box (to keep the mess at minimum)
- Pink Ribbon (from Michael’s)
I embarked on the mission to create GLITTER SHOES for my Birthday Princess incorporating tips from all 3 DIY projects listed below. As the night progressed, I found myself a complete nervous wreck on the 5th hour of my 2-hour project and while I blew a big “whew” once I was finished with my prized craft, I realized I took no pictures of the project. Ah! The life of a rookie crafter!
The pictures suck but I promise the finished project was pretty awesome. My niece was all smiles and blushes, she wore the shoes in no time with no hesitation and I high-fived myself with 4 cupcakes and 5 macaroons baked by my awesome sister!
Happy Birthday Malai!!!
