This is my first Instructable so bear with me. I have been debating whether to enter in the contest or not and I think I will even though I would say I wasted some plastic bags in my process, still I feel that I rescued a pair of shoes so I guess that is the trade-off this time. I didn't know about the contest when I did the project.
Here I will show you how to rescue some ugly shoes and transform them into a princess girls dream shoes. I might note too, that I have seen glitter shoes for kids and regardless of the price they usually last for a couple wearings before the glitter falls off and they become ugly, this could be a way to restore them or just create your own out of some hand-me-down shoes you think are ugly to begin with. I loved this project because I didn't go out and BUY anything for it. I checked the garage and my craft stuff and found all I really needed to rescue these shoes.
Step 1: Gather materials
you will need:
-shoes that are begging to be rescued from ugliness
-all purpose spray adhesive (you could probably something else but I haven't tried it)
-Glitter (I used tiny glitter because it's what I had, but any should work)
-masking tape and plastic bags for taping off the shoes
Step 2: Tape off the shoes
Push plastic bags thorough clean/dry shoes to cover the inside, and wrap it to the underside to protect the shoe from glue overspray. use tape to mask off the sole and keep plastic where you want it and out of the way of the spray area. I think one could use paper instead but I used plastic bags to be sure none of the glue got through to the parts I didn't' want glue. If you were doing a pair of tennies or other closed shoes I would just fill them with paper and tape off the sole/lower edge.
