i finally found some time to customize a pair of black shoes i recently bought :) i wanted to try this since i saw some glittering shoes at zara. i didn’t want to spend so much money so i decided to do this. just in case you feel the same way about it i captured the process and made a tutorial :) here we go!

Step 1: you need: Shoes, Tacky Glue (it turns transparent don’t be scared), 40g Glitter, a brush and some time ;) – get started by deciding which part of your shoes you want to sparkle. you can of course put glitter all over too! I used masking tape to separate the parts I wanted to stay black and the glittery ones.
Step 2: mix glue and glitter, don’t be afraid to use the glitter ok?
Step 3: put on the first layer of glue/glitter using the brush
Step 4: let the first layer dry and put one the next one… I think it took me 5 layers to get the glitter state you can see in the end.
Step 5: let the shoes dry over night, or until they are fully dry. than get rid of the masking tape… i had a shock moment when i did that step, because it’s tricky… i used a pair of tweezers to get every last bit that got stuck under the glitter.
Step 6: i also changed the laces
Step 7: you can go out now and spread some glitter to the world ;)
