DIY: Glitter Booties

A pair of booties I glittered last week. They remind me of the Miu Miu glitter booties. My sister bought these shoes almost 10 years ago and my parents wouldn't throw them out even though they're so worn. Mom and dad are semi hoarders and it used to dive me crazy... But now it is in my favour as I picked up a bunch of stuff to DIY and my sister finally got rid of her shoes... 10 years later.

Here are the steps:

1. You would need a pair of shoes, white glue, glitter, a brush, painter's tape and clear varnish.

2. Tape the parts that you don't want glitter to get on. Apply white glue evenly onto the booties then sprinkle the glitter on.

3. Keep sprinkling until all areas are covered.
Tip: Sprinkle in a container or a shoe box so it's easier to clean up

4. Spray varnish over the booties and let it dry over night.

Vola! Now go walk around like Tinkerbell, you little sparkle-doodle.
