While you’re all reading about Sneaker Sunday I’ll be on day 2 of our epic car trip yay!
After last week’s post I was looking at those sneakers again. I love them but I’ve always thought that something was a bit missing from them.
I thought about it for a while and I realised… everything needs more glitter 😀
What you need for this sneaker sunday tutorial:
Remove the laces from your shoes.
Pour all of your glitter into a container to hold it.
Pour some of the glue onto your tray.
Add some glitter…
Mix it all together using your paint brush. You want a mix that is more glue than glitter. It shouldn’t be too chunky.
Start painting anywhere you want glitter!
I do sections around this size at a time so the glue doesn’t dry too quickly.
It also helps to pull out the tongue (which I’m leaving blank for this design) to make it easier to reach the other parts.
Repeat on the other shoe…
Wait for it to dry and you get this!
Do a second coat of glitter 😀 Depending on the colour of the glitter and your shoes you may need to do several coats.
Wait for it to dry completely and then paint on a top coat of plain glue. This will ensure the glitter doesn’t go anywhere and means you will be able to wipe them clean without damaging the glitter.
Make sure it dries completely before you do anything with them!
Here is a close up of them dry. It really doesn’t capture just how glittery they are in person! Also you might not want to glitter the holes the laces go through but I was in a super hurry doing this!
I replaced the laces with black ribbon too.
And done! Super shiny, you really can’t tell in the photos but they are absolutely blinding in the sun!
The first few times you wear them they might be a bit sticky. After you have worn them in the glue will lose it’s sticky on the outside. If you want to speed this up just get them a bit dirty XD To keep them clean just wipe with a wet cloth.
Even better if you have a matching ladybug friend…
Lady bugs= sneaker coordination at it’s best 😀
