In keeping with the holiday festive-ness of my recent blog posts, and in preparation for a Sparkle themed birthmachristavus (aka Holiday Party) this weekend, I finally got around to doing a glitter DIY that I have been meaning to do ever since these puppies popped up on the internets and broke my little heart. Why is it, that even when I find an amazing pair of shoes that I HAVE TO HAVE and they are a measly $22 at Forever 21, I still have to hemm and haw over whether or not to buy them!? Well no more people, because as affordable as that pair was, this remake that I whipped up, cost me even less! And now I have both the shoes of my dreams and the pride to say that I did it myself!
Then, 2) Kaylah recommends that you use a matte modge podge medium, but I used glossy. I dont know about you, but glitter just screams SHINY to me, and I didnt want to do anything that would cut back on the SHINY factor, you know what I mean?
1 Pair of Shoes (I got mine at Savers for $5, originally from American Eagle, and removed the suede)
1 tube of Modge Podge (I used Glossy)
1 container of Martha Stewart glitter in gold (I got the huge size because, why not?)
some sponge brushes
2 plastic containers to mix/keep the mixture in
newspaper to cover your work surface
Total cost of supplies for this project? $17 BUCKS!
And because I was excited about my ability to glitter things, and the excess amount of glitter I had on my hands, I was all like, "so what else can I glitter in this joint?!?" I actually ended up glittering a plastic back cover for my iPhone as well! Glitter everywhere!! (more photos on my Flickr, as always)
