We have a fancy Christmas party to go to next week and I needed some fancy but flat shoes. I think glitter will do the trick.

I covered these cheap plain black flats from PayLess with very fine black glitter and I love how they turned out. You could definitely make over thrifted shoes with glitter, and how adorable (and inexpensive) would that be for a little girl!

Here’s how to make glitter shoes:




Cover the shoe with glue and glitter doing small sections at a time to make sure the glue stays wet.

Pour that glitter on reeeaal thick. It’s going to make a big mess that your kids will “help” make even bigger.

15 minutes later – GLITTER SHOES! Now how to make my hair be fancy…

Thanks girls! I hope they don’t look dumb with my dress…I know my dress is a high heel kind of dress, but I just can’t do it! Now what to do with my ever-thinning, post-pregnancy hair…
