Very cute way to repurpose shoes!
Time: 20 minutes + drying time.
Cleanup: We did this outside, but it's pretty easy to keep the mess contained. Just have some paper towels handy. I also score 5 cent foam brushes at Michael's, so I didn't even bother to clean them.
What you need:
- Mod Podge (We used the Glossy kind.)
- Glitter (We used Martha Stewart's ultra fine glitter.)
- Masking tape
- Paint or foam brushes
- Workspace "mat" (we used a piece of brown paper)
- Something to glitterfy (We used some hand-me-down sneakers. My daughter previously thought these were 'boy' shoes and refused to wear them. Now, it's a completely different story.)
1. Clean off your object to Mod Podge. I also glittered the top of my keys (thanks to Pinterest for the ideas), and cleaned the metal with rubbing alcohol. For the shoes, I just brushed away any loose dirt.
2. Using the masking tape, tape off any areas your don't want covered. My 3 year old did the majority of this craft by herself. With the help of masking tap, she really only painted the canvas of the shoe.
4. Brush on the glitter mixture. We did about 3 coats with only 5 minutes between each layer.
6. Peel off the tape and clean up any edges.
|A little messy, but the coating will dry clear. I used a paper towel to touch up the edges.|
7. Let dry and enjoy!
