Glittery Shoes Tutorial

Can you tell what I'm planning on being for Halloween?

 A little bit wide, but these shoes were scored for $1 at the thrift shop. They were NEW with sticker tags on them. 
What a great find!   
 I thought...well....I'm gonna try this crazy idea I've been thinking about. It won't hurt if it turns out bad, I only lose a buck.

Nice glue on the skirt, huh?

This is what you need:

Red Glitter
Spray adhesive

Cover a table with newspaper and lay your flats on it. Stuff the inside with tissue paper, and tape over it with clear tape. (Sorry no pics,  I didn't expect this to work...)

Cover your shoes one section at a time with the Tacky Glue. Use an old paintbrush you can throw away later. As you cover one 4 inch section at a time, pour the red glitter on that section before moving on.

Once the entire shoe is covered in glitter, look for bald spots and use the spray adhesive. Spray, pour glitter, wait.

Let the shoes dry for a few hours. Remove your packaging from the inside and slip them on.

Fantastical, Girly, Glittery...
