DIY: Miu Miu Inspired Glitter Pumps


Get ready to dazzle in glitter shoes this Fall season!! Miu Miu Fall Glitter Heels has taken the spotlight and have become the "it" pump for the season! So why not get crafty with a DIY project? If you don't have extra pumps you can always check your local thrift store... and if you can get them with a chunky 40's inspired heel, even better!!

Here are the steps by steps:

You will need:
* Heels {the Loubs from the picture are a flea market find and only cost USD 5}
* Gold glitter
* Acrylic glue
* Sandpaper
* A paint brush

1. Clean the shoes, and then lightly sand them to rough up the surface so the glue sticks properly.
2. Mix the glue and glitter together in a container.

3. Paint the shoe with the glitter glue.
4. Sprinkle with extra glitter to fully coat the shoes. Don't worry about getting glitter inside the shoes, just clean them up once the glue has dried.

5. If you missed some spots, give them a second coat. You may get away with a single coat, but feel free to do a second coat if required.

... and voila you are ready to shine!!!

Yeah I was thinking the same thing about the Loubs, but I think they look brand new after the DIY and it was worth it to recreate them with a trendy style :)

Hi Kitty & K... I know it's hard to imagine doing anything to some Loubs... but this are a flea market find and only cost USD 5!! Now my question is why my local thrift store never carry Loubs..!!
Have a fabulous day!!
