We all want a fabulous pair of wedding shoes that will make other girls swoon. Those Christian Louboutin's? Forget them! They can be upwards of $6,000! Ouch. I have some good news. You can make your very own Christian Louboutin worthy shoes. Here's how.
- Glitter ($3 at Hobby Lobby)
- Rhinestones ($15 for a pound at Hobby Lobby)
- Pair of shoes that need some pizzazz (I got mine for $32 at Payless)
- E 600 glue ($4 at Hobby Lobby)
- Paintbrush or Q-tips
- Elmer's Spray Adhesive ($7 at Hobby Lobby)
- Towel or other surface to work on
Take the E 600 glue and spread it on a small area of the shoe. Be careful! Once the cap is open the glue will flow out, so be sure to set the tube upright when not in use.
Use a Q-tip or paintbrush to spread the glue evenly on that area.
*Pro Tip- paintbrushes work much better*
Take a generous amount of glitter and sprinkle it onto the glue. This gets messy! Be sure you are working over a surface that you can easily clean up or don't mind tossing out.
Take your fingers and press the glitter into the glue. Add more glitter if you see any bald spots.
Repeat steps two-five until the entire shoe (minus the heel) is glitterfied.
As the other shoe dries, begin adding rhinestones to the heel. To do this, use a small q-tip or paintbrush to dab glue on a small area.
Take the rhinestones and place them on the glue. Do this until the entire heel is covered. You can use different sizes as I did or use one size.
Repeat the above steps on each shoe until they are both made fabulous!
Wait 24 hours, then take the Elmer's Spray Adhesive and spray onto the surface of the shoe. This adds an extra layer of protection to prevent the glitter from falling off.
Enjoy Those Unique Beauties!
I purchased the largest option of each material just in case my bridesmaids wanted to amp up their own shoes. Otherwise the cost would be much less! Not too shabby!
