I see glittery things everywhere – even for babies! From shoes and dresses to decor and even food, glitter is all the rage. When I stumbled upon a $2 pair of Mary Janes in my daughter’s size at the thrift store, I knew I had to make her some sparkly shoes. I already had the rest of the supplies at home, so this project only cost me two bucks! (Score!!!) Click through to see how I did it…
Sparkle & Shine!
A super-easy, stylish DIY! (Make some for you, too!)
All you need is a pair of shoes in your little one’s size, lots of glitter, some tacky glue, and a paint brush. (A little bit of painter’s tape would work well, too!)
First things first
First, tape off your shoes. Cover any part that you don’t want covered in glitter. (The soles, laces, hooks, etc.)
Use a paint brush to “paint” on the glue. I did this in small sections. You want a good, thick layer of tacky glue.
Add the glitter!
Then, pour on the glitter! Make sure to add a good amount. Shake it off, then add more as necessary. You may even press the glitter into the glue!
Keep painting on the glue and adding glitter… It takes some time, but the precision is worth it!
Cover it all
Add the glitter until the entire shoe is covered! (Double check for small spots where it may be missing!)
Finish both shoes!
Make sure both shoes are covered and look even…
Let them dry!
Let them dry for at least 24 hours. If you want, spray with a clear coat or brush with clear fingernail polish. This will hold the glitter in longer.
That’s it! Your little babe will love these stylish shoes – for dress-up, or to wear out!
