I’ve seen so many tutorials for glitter flats and other glitter shoes and I wanted to try it myself. I think they turned out pretty well! I typically do not wear shoes like this so it will be interesting for others to watch me walk in them…
Things you will need:
Mod Podge or other glue
Lay down some Newspaper and mix about 1/4 cup Mod Podge with a cup of glitter into a disposable bowl. I did not measure but I guestimated.
Start by painting half of the shoe with your glue mixture. Make sure to keep your lines clean or you will be having a hard time cleaning it up later.
Sprinkle some glitter over top of the painted-on glue mixture. Make sure you keep the shoe over top of the newspaper.
It gets quite messy. Use your fingers to tap the glitter into the glue. Don’t press to hard.
It is soooo glittery!
This is the final product, for me at least. I originally decided not to put a sealant over top of the glitter but after wearing them for a short while there was a ton of glitter on the floor. I plan to get a sealant to put over top of the glitter to preserve the appearance. I recommend you do the same if you try to make your own. Let me know if you come up with a good technique. 🙂

Neat idea. They look good but I wouldn’t wear them.
Never thought of gluing glitter to shoes. Cool idea.
