When I saw these shoes at the thrift store from far away, I died!! When I got closer, I noticed they were pretty beat up. The fronts of the toes were shredded, but for a $1(!!!!), I knew I could do something fun to try and save them. Haven’t we all had that moment of “Noooooo not the shoes!!!” when our toddlers stumble a little, or as Maya likes to do someitmes…drag her feet. Grrrr. Anyway, this wouldn’t work for all shoes, and it does take some time, but…I love how they turned out! Maya loves them too!
“Glitter shoes!!”You can see below what they looked like…Here’s what you’ll need…
- Painters tape (it’s not as sticky/won’t ruin the shoes further :))
- (You could also just paint the toes!)Tape off the cap of the shoe in the amount you want to do the glitter toe cap.Cover the area in glue. I did a pretty heavy coating to make sure it covered up the shredded areas of the shoe. I put an apple container under haha, but you could line a cookie sheet with tin foil 🙂 Then, I let Maya go to town pouring the glitter on. I actually did these shoes back in September, but am just now blogging them. I promise, she wasn’t freezing outside in a tank top 🙂 Voila!And…here she is wearing them the other day 🙂 Have fun and happy glittering!
So clever of you! I never thought about it. Miss Maya is so adorable! Love her smile. Big kisses x
Thanks so much Carina!! 😘😘
I can’t wait to do another pair, because Lord knows she’s scuffed a FEW pairs of shoes… 😜
Her shoes are my fave! Maya is styling!
Thanks Amy!! I only wish I found them in my size haha 🙂
