Tutorial: Make your own Glitter Shoes

Yesterday I showed you my glitter shoes which I’m totally in love with and promised I’d do a “how to make glitter shoes” guide so here it is!


You will need

- Shoes which need glitter!

- Sandpaper

- Some glitter. I used one pot of 75g glitter

- Super-glue. I used Bostick All Purpose Extra Strong Adhesive which seemed to last really well

- Paintbrushes

- Old Pot


- Hairspray


How to

1. Start off with some shoes that you want to glitter-fy. I used these scuffed old Primark peep-toes which were unwearable.




2. I then carefully sanded each one all over to “key” it in as it was patent leather.


you can see it looks rougher

3. Choose your glitter colour. I was stuck between pink and blue so put the question to twitter

Next I made a mixture of glue and glitter in a pot and mixed it up so the glitter was really thick but not too thick as it would clump



4. I then quickly covered the shoes in the glue and glitter mixture until they were completely covered. If using superglue then work super-quick! Then put a thin coat of glue over the top  over the paint tray liberally shake glitter over the shoes



5. I put the shoes on a paint tray to dry


6. Finally, when they’re dry (I gave them 24 hours) spray liberally with hairspray all over (but don’t choke yourself!) and wear!
