DIY Glitter Cap-Toe Shoes


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:

  • Heels
  • tacky glue
  • 2 foam brushes (so you don’t have to mix the glitter colors)
  • tape
  • 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.

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!



  1. Love this! I want to try it out but I’m afraid it’ll be one of the many projects I never finish. I like that you decided to add glitter to the heels as well! When it comes to glitter more is more!
