Glitter shoes

You know those cute red glitter maryjanes for little girls? They’re hard to find in adult sizes. So I made my own. I had some of the new Jacquard Pinata paints on hand, and tried to mix up some hot pink. It turned out purple so I went with it, seeing as how I have a rainbow of glitter colors. I painted beige shoes with this multipurpose paint so the base color wouldn’t show through. Then I painted glue (Aleene’s) on the shoes and sprinkled microglitter over all of it. It took an entire tube of glitter for both shoes.

The project to about 20 minutes, total. They’re drying in the sun right now.
