DIY Glitter Shoes
  1. Suede pumps

  7. Flexible curve – optional it helps with marking your design
DIY Glitter Shoes
Step 1
Decide where you want to put your design. I made some sketches to help me visualize.DIY Glitter Shoes
Step 2
Using your chalk and your flexible curve (optional) carefully mark your design.
Do this for both shoes. When you are marking your second shoe make sure all your designs match from one shoe to the other (unless of course you want them different).
You can also use tape to mark off your design but I find this to be a little messy, because the tape doesn’t always keep it from bleeding through and once your Glitter/Mod Podge mixture is dry it tends to be a bit rubbery as in, if you pull on it, it will peel. So, in my opinion it’s better to go slow and wing it.DIY Glitter Shoes
Step 3
Mix your Mod Podge and glitter in a small bowl. I always do this by an open window. The Mod Podge is a bit stinky.DIY Glitter Shoes
Step 4
Starting with your big brush paint your Glitter/Mod Podge mixture onto your first shoe. I recommend starting in the middle of your design and working toward your edges. You will use your small brush to carefully paint the edges of your design.
DIY Glitter ShoesWhen you are painting the edges you can easily push the mixture back with your nail if it gets out of line. You can also clean it off the shoes easily if you catch it quickly.DIY Glitter Shoes
Step 5
Place your shoes outside if you can or by an open window to dry, they will dry faster this way.
I also recommend you don’t throw out your Glitter/Mod Podge mixture yet. As your shoes dry check them for places where the shoe color is showing through and touch them up.DIY Glitter Shoes
Once your shoes are completely dry you’re ready to roll. I found the dried Glitter/Mod Podge to be pretty tough too. Of course you still want to treat them with care but enjoy, kick up your heels and add a splash of color to your life with a sparkle!DIY Glitter ShoesLove


Hey Loves
Hope y'all are doing great. So here are more some DIY (do it yourself). My new addiction, i like it though, and thought i should share with you my lovies.
  • 1 Pair ballerina flat shoes 
  • 1 Yard of 2” satin ribbon (always get a couple inches extra)
  • 2 Rhinestone buckles
  • Glue 
  • Hot glue 
  • Needle & thread
  • Scissors

Step 1
Measure across the toe box on your shoes, exactly where you will want your ribbon to go. Then cut 2 pieces of your ribbon to that length, with a little extra (just in case).
Step 2
Lay your cut pieces of ribbon out flat and set your buckle on top, measure where you will make your hole, “to buckle your shoes”. Once you’ve measured, pierce a hole in your ribbon with your scissors.
Step 3
“Buckle your shoes” by feeding your ribbon through your buckle.
Step 4
Glue your buckles to your shoes. Then you’ll need to let it dry for a few hours before continuing.
If you’re using hot glue, apply your hot glue directly to the top of your shoe where you will be placing your buckle and press your buckle into it. Hold it until it dries/cools.
Step 5
Once your glue is dry and your buckle is secure, pull your ribbon gently but firmly toward the sole of your shoe. Mark a line, on your ribbon, along the edge where the upper part of the shoe meets the sole. Cut your ribbon along the line where you marked it.Puritan Ballerina Flats How to DIY
Step 6
Using your hot glue, place a line of glue on your shoe along the edge where you want to glue your ribbon to your shoe.Puritan Ballerina Flats DIY Detail
Step 7
Take your remaining ribbon and cut it in half. Take one piece of your ribbon and your needle and thread, fold your edge over about a ¼ inch and stitch it down right along the edge. Then continue making small pleats until you feel your ruffle is wide enough for your shoe. When you get to the end trim your ribbon and fold it over the same as you did at the beginning about a ¼ inch and stitch it down.
Make 2.
Step 8
Attach your ruffles just inside your shoes with your hot glue, be careful not to put too much hot glue or it will squish out and add extra bulk you don’t want.Puritan Ballerina Flats DIY RuffleDIY Puritain Ballerina Flats
