This DIY shoe project was one of those projects that almost turned out perfect, but not quite. But I really like this idea, so I thought I’d share it anyway, in case you want to try it for yourselves. Maybe you’ll do a better job! What I did was wrong was to let the paint dry before I pulled up the tape. If I had pulled up the tape when the paint was till wet , it wouldn’t have peeled bits of the paint off. Oh, well! Liva and learn.
But I kind of like the rough handmade striped look, and think these look cute with jeans, although I probably wouldn’t wear them out for a night on the town. Maybe I should have just left the stripes off, leaving only the glitter heel. What do you think?
- Plain shoes
- acrylic paint
- Mod Podge
First I masked of the heel, painted the heel and under part of the shoe red, them mixed Mod Podge and glitter and applied it to the heel.
