Sailor Moon Gumboots

As you guys saw last week, I did a really quick customisation of a pair of gumboots for our trip to the Peony Farm. If you’re going to wear gumboots, might as well go all out right?

How To DIY Decoupage Shoes! Tutorial

I did a video tutorial on these shoes quite a while ago but thought a photo tutorial would be in order as well! The idea is a very simple one: take old shoes and decoupage them with old magazines into adorable new shoes, win!

How To DIY Colourful Sneaker Brouges

I like making new things out of old things I don’t like.

This is a pair of green faux brogues sneakers that I made recently:

DIY Spiked Shoes! -Tutorial

Oh my god… two tutorials in a row? Unheard of recently! To be fair, this is such a self explanatory tutorial it’s more just inspiration really…

I am super picky when it comes to flat shoes. SUPER picky. I spent months trying to find ones to replace the ones Lottie killed.

So eventually I found some but I didn’t think they were quite fancy enough so I took a few minutes and added some extra spikes, and this is how they turned out!

How To Make Glitter Sole Shoes- Craft Tutorial

I’ve done several glitter shoe tutorials before but this one has been on my list for quite some time. I love the look of shoes with brightly coloured soles so glitter is the perfect way to highlight that even more. For anyone who was wondering, the shoes are from DreamV and they are SUPER uncomfortable!

The trick to this version not requiring a top coat of anything is the kind of glue used. I use wash n wear fabric glue but any non-water soluble fabric glue will work fine. If you decide to use a PVA or regular white craft glue keep in mind that they are only going to be water resistant, not water proof. You will also need to top coat with more glue in that case as they are weaker glues. There’s a tutorial for how to glitter sneakers that way over here. 

This is the first craft video we’ve shot using the DLSR and I’m really happy with the new set up so far, it was a lot more work so if you enjoyed it share it and let me know! Now I’m just waiting for my new lights to get here so I can do even more things like this without needing to wait for the sun! 😀

How to do glittered shoe soles.
Good morning!
Today I’m going to show you how to glitter some epic shoes!
Let’s get started!
I like to set up all of my supplies before I’ve started.
There’s something worse than realising you’ve forgotten something half way through.
You need fabric glue, glitter and a paint brush.
Start off by cleaning off the area you want to glitter.
With a small paint brush and glue paint a horizontal line to define where you want the glitter to end.
You don’t want to do the entire sole because it will just come off when you walk and it can make the surface a bit uneven.
You wouldn’t want to fall over when you’re out wearing something this high.
Now fill in the rest of the area with glue.
It’s very important that you use a glue that is not water soluble.
I’m using wash and wear fabric glue which is really great for this kind of thing.
You don’t want to leave a trail of glitter behind you every time it rains.
Time for my favorite part: the glitter waterfall.
Pour it all over the glue, no need to be careful here.
You can use any kind of glitter you like but I thought the gold would go really well with the leopard print!
You’ll notice that I’m doing all of this on top of some sheets of A4 paper, this is important and you’ll see why at the end.
Give everything a big shake to get rid of excess glitter.
Take that shoes, this is for my toes!
How can you look so pretty but be so painful!
Because I’m using such a strong glue these won’t need a top coat.
If you’re using something along the lines of PVA glue you will need to top coat it.
There is another tutorial on my blog with techniques for those kinds of glues.
Now remember the paper?
Once you’re done simply fold it up and pour the glitter back into the bag.
Cleaning up glitter can be a real pain but this makes it super quick.
Leave them to dry overnight or however long your glue requires.
Now let’s get back to the shoes.
Run your finger along the sides to clear away any glitter that may have stuck to the sides.
Then using a brush, dust away any excess glitter.
You probably wouldn’t want to use this brush on your face again unless you’re a big fan of a super glitter look!
Make sure you brush them quite hard or else you’ll be leaving a train of glitter everywhere.
Now you’re ready for a night on the town or maybe just looking your best to do some groceries.
Either way!
Hope that was a useful tutorial.
Please check out the blog posts linked in the description for more tutorials and other posts and thanks so much for watching.
Bye!
