I've been looking through some of Rex and Baden's old clothing and shoes to see what I can convert to girl clothing for the baby. These little red converse sneakers have been through a few boys in the family. I decided to try and "girlify" them for the baby so she can wear them one day too. It was a quick, easy project.
I started by removing the old laces and scrubbing the toes to get them a little cleaner.
I used a little sponge to apply the glitter bond.
Then I shook on the glitter. I pressed it on with my fingers and shook off the excess. I used my fingernail to make sure the edge was really clean along the black line. The glitter covered the dirty toe really well.
I added some ribbon I already had for laces and called them done. If you're wondering how well the glitter will stay on, I can attest that it stays on really well. I made THESE SHOES a long time ago and they held up really well. (If you scuff your toes a lot them you could always reapply some extra glitter if necessary.)
And there you have it - from dirty, worn out boy shoes to clean, cute girly ones. Thanks for stopping by.
