I buy the general color and then spray them. Have had people ask me where I find my shoes! OH, and I also spray my flip flops and sandals for the cool sparkly look too! Try some cheap nail art from the dollar store too! Will now follow you! What material are the shoes? I have suede flats I want to do, do you think the result would be the same? Good luck with yours-- I love green. I didn't need to touch mine up, although I only wore my glitter heels for my ceremony and then switched to flats for dancing at my reception.
I brought super glue and a little container of glitter for touch ups just in case, but didn't need it after all. These shoes look amazing!! I'm planning on making mine in lime green. Did your shoes need touched up as your wedding day went on, or did they hold up pretty well?
Thanks looking forward to making my own! Here's a helpful tip: It will protect your foot, othe interior of the shoe, AND you can coat the entire shoe with glitter. Your foot holds onto the shoe for you. I think this is a fantastic idea!! I'm not sure what you mean by dusty.
I've only made these shoes using the products I mentioned, so if you have a dusty look from other products, I can't help much. Make sure you seal with a glossy shellac-- matte finishes will look dull and dusty. Make sure you work in layers. The top most layer is adhered with a spray glue underneath for a flawless finish.
Did you follow each step and use the same products? How do you get make the "dusty look" go away? Is there a simple step for this? Mine did not but I only wore them on my wedding day. If you wore these shoes everyday, I bet they might.
What a way to perk up a pair of shoes. My 9 year old daughter will love this! What a brilliant idea Heather; a really snazzy way to liven up a pair of Summer pumps or make perfect a pair of wedding shoes: I love your glitter shoes! Martha Stewart taught me everything I know; from cooking to gardening to crafts and much more.
This would be a great idea for shoes to match a Prom dress or occasion dress. I love the blue glitter, though! Voted up and pinned! My granddaughter loves glitter shoes!! Now we could make them together!! I did it a little bit at a time over the course of 3 days. All together it took maybe 4 hours or less but it can't be done from start to finish or you don't have a section of shoe to hold as you work. Wow - the glitter shoes and heels are inspiring!
This nifty idea of jazzing up old footwear seems simple, but it's soooooo worthy to try! I have my own princess party company and I am making glitter shoes for a few of my characters and I was wondering if you think mod podge would seal the shoe as well instead of the spray. And, ccongratulations on your marriage. I felt like I was looking in the mirror this morning when I realized the new hub I'd written yesterday was just like yours! We even used most of the same techniques, and I'm definitely coming back to read this hub again after I've had a cup of coffee or two it's 5: It didn't take nearly as much glitter as I imagined.
I had some left over which was good bring some with you for touch ups on your big day. I did the entire shoe and I wear an American size 9, that would use more glitter than someone glittering a size 7 pair of flats.
I think i used more than an ounce but less than three ounces. I had purchased two bottles, ended up returning one and had a fair amount left over-- I gave what was left to my mother-in-law to incorporate into a wedding scrapbook she is creating.
My best advice is: Perhaps shop online for a great price? If you have leftovers, use them somewhere else in your wedding or for creating a wedding keepsake later on. I wish I could be of more help! I LOVE the color of shoes! I'm wanting to do this same thing for my wedding shoes, but I was wondering how much of a bottle of glitter you used. I'm in Germany and they just don't have the same craft supplies or measurements as in the US, so I'm having a hard time deciding how much glitter I should buy.
My daughter has a dance in the next few weeks, and i'm having the hardest time finding her a shoe that works or POPS! She's 14 and wears an 11 or 12, it depends on the shoe poor baby! Because I'm way to familiar with these issues, I started thinking last night to try this very ideal. My dear you have just given me the nerve to try this out! Thank you for all the tips, I would have never thought to use a high gloss, but I will now.
So in the am, I will be on my way to purchase an inexpensive shoe, than I'm on my way to Michaels. You know, maybe a month ago I finally went into Michaels for the very 1st time Again, Thank you for the great tips, and maybe I'll be able to post her "Blingee's" for you!
I used Aleen's Spray Acrylic Sealer. This is the same brand as the tacky spray. If I remember correctly, this spray comes in different finishes gloss, semi-gloss, matte, etc. Make sure you use a spray that is a gloss finish, otherwise your glitter will be dulled. I also wondered what kind of shellac you used.
