Everyone knows I love anything that involves sequins and glitter. I also love shoes. Add my love for crafts and DIY projects and voila! What do we have? DIY glitter shoes!!!! Now I really wish I could create more DIY posts, the thing is I am just short on time and attention span. I have literally 100 projects that I have started and never finished- but someday, I will have my own craft room in the house and commit myself to finishing each one and taking pictures along the way as I go to show all you lovely people.
But one step at a time. So for us to begin to create a pair of lovely glitter shoes, here is what you will need:
- tacky glue
- 2 foam brushes (so you don’t have to mix the glitter colors)
- 2 colors of glitter
- Adhesive spray or hair spray (optional- but a good idea as we are dealing with glitter)
- Approx. 1 hour
First: Tape off the section of the toe. Make sure both heels are even.
Second: Apply the tacky glue with the foam brush to the toe. Spread evenly and then apply glitter.
P.S. Don’t forget to take off the inside seal of the glitter.
While I waited for the toe to dry, I began applying the glitter to the body of the heel with the second foam brush to avoid mixing the glitter colors. Apply glue evenly.
A work in progress….
Third: Remove the tape. If the glue has dried, use an exact-o knife to make sure the dried glue is not pulled up with the tape. If you pull the tape off while the glue is still wet, you might not have a problem.

Fourth: This step is optional but I recommend it to keep the glitter in place- spray with adhesive or hair spray. Let dry. Be careful not to kick your shoes on anything as glitter likes to get on EVERYTHING.
Ta-da! Your very own glitter cap-toe heels!!
I decided to cover the heels with glitter. You could do silver here too. Or just leave the heels without glitter.
There you have it, your very own glitter cap-toe heels!
