Make your own DIY Glitter Shoes!


Not in Kansas Glitter Pumps
Designed by Allee Marderosian

Materials:

Tulip® Fashion Glitter™
Tulip® Glitter Bond™
– Paintbrush or make-up sponge
– Paper towels
– Shoes
– Plastic Tablecloth
– Foil

Instructions:
For best results, please read all instructions before beginning project. Refer to photo for color and design placement.

1. Cover work surface with plastic tablecloth. Set shoes on prepared surface.
2. Squeeze out Glitter bond onto foil. Using paintbrush or make-up sponge apply glue to shoes.
3. Once desired areas are covered, immediately cover with Fashion Glitter.
Optional: Use glitter bond and paint over glittered areas to seal.

Tip:
Lay paper towel down underneath shoes while applying glitter, shake excess glitter onto paper towel then back into glitter bottle.
Let shoes dry completely.

Note: We used these glitter shoes for display, so that’s why you see the glitter on the inside of the shoes too! We don’t recommend this for wearing, but they would make a fun wall motif like shown or accents and art to make your space super girly and fun!
