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.

  3. AWESOME job!!!! They came out really great. I'm pretty sure I would get glitter and glitter gel everywhere in my apartment. Pretty like i got fabric paint when I DIYed my american flag shorts. I'm a mess lol

  4. Lovely! I like that it is not glittered fully and shows off part of the original leather! I must glitter mine too!

  9. That's some super fun DIY right there! Does the varnish already waterproof the shoes? Cause I'm nervous about the white glue >.<

  25. Nobody in my family (myself included) hoards enough for me to have throwaway items to DIY lol. I like your trick of using tape to protect the parts you don't want to glitter up. It's the same technique people use to paint perfect stripes on walls.
