I started out with these flats. I paid $7.50 for them at Wal-Mart.
I used Martha Stewart glitter paint in amethyst and tourmaline. Mixed them took several coats of this paint, I lost coun lol. Once that dried overnight. I mixed green, purple and champagne glitter in Mod-Podge and painted it over the glitter paint. Bought champagne ribbion to cover the white tops of the shoe. Used Tacky Glue to glue this on. Hot glued these adorable ribbion flowers with bling in the center to the front. They came out great!!

They look really pretty, and I don’t mean to rain on your parade…but I work with modpodge and do crafts and sewing, and those are going to CRACK and probably chip once you’ve worn them a little while. :/

They’re gorgeous, you did a great job and I love the colour! (:
@pharmy: I would be a little concerned with cracking too, I made some glittery shoes for a project in my feminism and fashion class and I found that the modpodge cracked a little around the edges. Have you tried wearing them around to see how durable they are?

I talked to my mom about the cracking. She has bin a crafter all her life and used Mod-Podge for tons of projects, and thinks they will be ok. Im not really worried about it Ive seen lots of articles and blogs about glittering your own flats and Martha even did a part on her show about it. So I think they will hold up pretty well. I plan on testing them out too.

Super cute! But do you think the paint will crack when you walk and the shoe bends?

Love the color!
& They do crack btw! I had DIY glitter shoes for my wedding day. Wore them for maybe 2.5 hours…we eloped… And the glitter started falling off wear the shoes flex. I uses modpodge & MS glitter as well. Good luck!!!
