My？simple glam look was inspired by my friend Audra's post for DIY Up-cycled Glitter Heels at The Kurtz Corner. They have all the glitter and sparkle I was looking for to fit our theme. If you’re crafty (or you've recently become wedding-induced-crafty) you might already have these items on hand but if not， glitter and clear coat？were my two？highest expenses at $4 each (assuming you have an old pair of shoes you want to give a makeover!)customized gifts for mom
Here Is What You'll Need：–； a pair of heels–； your choice of fine glitter–； mod podge or fabric glue–； sponge brush or paintbrush–； acrylic sealant spray paint–； tape is optional
Clean or prep your shoes. Mine were patent leather so after I cleaned them？I took two rough grains of sand paper and beat them up by scuffing the surface. This helps hold the glitter to the shoe if the shoes are made of a slippery material. Then you're ready to paint!
Firstfloral pillow shams， I mixed the mod podge and purple glitter together and applied it with a sponge brush. I painted the entire right shoe purple and allowed it to dry in the sun while I painted the entire left shoe. I repeated this process and let the shoes dry standing upright.
Next， I mixed nude glitter with mod podge which I painted inside the heel and arch. I repeated this process and continued to let them？dry. I did not paint the entire sole； this helps？ensure I keep all traction and hopefully no slips! Finally， I？hung them up and sprayed the acrylic clear paint for a polished finish. I am so excited to rock these glam heels!
My decision to revamp shoes I already owned vs. buying new was to save another $50 on our total？budget. This project cost $8 and each item will be used in other DIY projects for？our wedding. I spent a total of 30 minutes start to finish for this simple and stunning shoe project!
Joann’s Fabric & Crafts emailed me with a challenge. ?Make a video to demonstrate a simple and easy craft that would inspire others to want to create! ?It’s part of their Creativity Made Simple campaign and I just LOVE the idea behind it. ?It’s all about inspiring others to carve out time in their day for a little creative time.
Tell me I’m not the only one that has too much fabric! A few years ago it was such a mess that I had a hard time finding what I needed. ?So I came up with a new system to help me organize my fabric. It has worked so well for me that I thought I’d share it with you today. Along with some of my favorite tips to organize fabric! ?If you like this post then you may also like this tour of my sewing room.?
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas.? At least on my porch.? Still lots to do, but it’s coming along. This year I decided to let Lowe’s help me.? I needed simple decorations for Christmas that look amazing, but are fuss free.?? I love my new wreath (it lights up) with the red accents to match my door.? I added 2 silver pine cone ornaments, because I just can’t leave things as they are.? It’s sickness……..really.? When I went back to pick up more items, I saw this AMAZING boxwood wreath that they just got in! I may still have to go grab one.
