DIY: Glitter High Heels

Still looking for special shoes for your wedding day? Let's make one pair by ourselve using any kind pair of shoes.

Here's all we need:

  • pair of heels (any fabric will work!)
  • grafts glue
  • your choice of glitter
  • paint brush
  • small container and/or wax paper



Painting a coat of decoupage glue onto a small section of the heel. It’s best to work in small sections; if doing an entire heel you might want to break it up into five sections. Two on each side and then the heel itself, this will help to keep your coats organized. Keep your glue strokes as even as possible, otherwise you shoe will end up looking wrinkled and/or possibly having lines.


Then shake on the glitter! Apply it liberally and tap the shoe on the desk to remove excess.


When that section is complete, carefully move onto the next. Only paint one side at a time and let it dry for at least an hour before moving on.


If the shoes were not the same color as the glitter, you might want to do TWO coats of glitter.  Whether you need one or two coats of glitter will be up to you!

Last step is very important. You will need to paint your new glitter shoe with TWO coats of decoupage to completely seal the glitter. Each coat needs at least an hour of dry time, if not more. To be safe, let them dry for 24 hours before you wear them. After the two coats are complete, you won’t loose one sparkle!

Now you got your new sparkling shoes!
