Happy Saturday everyone and MERRY CHRISTMAS!! Now we are well into December I am SO...
I have a fab DIY tutorial for you today and it comes from the equally fabulous Candice from Cloud Parade. If you are looking for a way to jazz up an old pair of shoes or add a bit of glitter to a pair that needs livening up then look no further, this DIY tutorial is just for you. Whether it’s for a day out, or as a guest at a wedding or maybe even a bridemaids outfit, this tutorial will give your old tired shoes a new lease of life.
We love a good DIY every once in a while. The Your Cloud Parade team came up with this shoe tutorial to rock out on any of our old shoes that are hiding in the back of our closet. It’s a great way to be ready for all the spring weddings that are in our 2014 calendar.
STEP 1) You will need paint brushes, any color glitter, and decoupage glue.
STEP 2) Tape the area off that you want to make sparkle. We high recommend you do the heel to add balance to your glittery toe.
STEP 3) Mix glue and glitter together to make a “paste” like paint.
STEP 4) paint in on thick. It won’t look fully glittered until the paint drys.
STEP 5) let dry for over 3 hours.
STEP 1) Find an older pair of shoes or some shoes that need a little extra loving’
STEP 2) Pick out some paint colors that you want, grab a paint brush, and a some masking tape.
STEP 3) Tape off the area that you would like painted. Use darker paints on lighter shoes so that it does not turn out “streaky”.
STEP 4) Paint taped off area and put on a 2nd coat when dried.
