Glitter-toed Flats

Have you seen those glittery heels that are popular right now?  Very glamorous, but not something I'd get to wear a whole lot.  I pinned THESE shoes the other day because I thought they were adorable.  So, I decided to marry the two and make some glitter-toed sparkley flats for myself.  They are casual enough for jeans and dressy enough for a dress.  They were fast and easy to make, too. 

I bought some inexpensive black flats from Target.


I taped off the area I wanted to add glitter to. I used painter's tape.


 I spread over the Tulip Glitter Bond and then sprinkled on my Tulip Fashion Glitter.




I peeled off the tape and voila!  They were done.


I think it would be fun to make some bolder ones for a little girl - like purple with bright kelly green toes or something kind of wild.


That's all for today.  Tomorrow's Wake Up Wednesday.  See you then.  Thanks for dropping in.

I have the same flat..they've been sitting in my closet for almost a year now. I'm not typically a glitter kind of gal, but I love these! Does that glitter bond keep you from leaving glitter everywhere?

So cute! I think it would be fun to cut the tape w/ a scalloped edge to add a little "whimsy" to it. Great idea and thanks for sharing :)

What a great idea. I am wondering if you used anything to seal the glitter to make them a little more durable? Just wondering...

Oh I must craft these up right away! Last night I had a dream that I was zipping around town in silver glitter roller skates! It's a sign!!

Zena - I expect to loose a little glitter the first time I wear them, but I think once the extra has been shaken off fromt he first wear that they will be fine. I'll keep you all posted.

Kimberly said...

So cute! I am wondering now that it's been a week or so, how are they holding up? Thanks!
