Instead of throwing away an old pair of kicks, learn how to revamp them with Mod Podge and glitter in this decoupage shoes project!
Hi there! This is Holly from Club Crafted, and as a DIYer, I am terrible at throwing things away, even when it’s necessary. This is often the case with my clothes, which I’m convinced I’ll either fix or fit into one day.
I’ve owned a pair of blue flats that I’d worn to the point that the toes appeared misshapen and discolored, but I couldn’t bear to get rid of them, so instead I gave my shoes a makeover with Mod Podge and glitter!
These glitter heart toe decoupage shoes now feel like a new addition to my wardrobe because the imperfections were covered up! Because the toes of the shoes are pointed, they were perfect for creating a heart shape, and in just 15 minutes, my shoes were completely made over.
My shoes were a faux suede type of material, but this should work on most fabric types.
Easy Decoupage Shoes
- Pointed toe shoes
- Mod Podge Gloss (or Mod Podge Outdoor if they need to be water resistant)
- Glitter (one or a combination of colors)
Step 1: Clean the shoes well before beginning your project.
Step 3: Paint a layer of Mod Podge on the heart you’ve just outlined. Immediately sprinkle with glitter. I used a combination of silver, white and blue glitter.
Once dry, your decoupage shoes are ready to wear! Even though sealing the glitter with Mod Podge makes the pattern last, some glitter may fall off over time. Reapply Mod Podge and glitter as needed to fill in any gaps.
This DIY can make it feel like you got a new pair of shoes!
