Introduction: Glass Slippers DIY

About: Hi everyone! I'm a hardcore DIY'er, I've published 11 DIY books, just produced my own TV show called Make Your Mark for PBS/APT, I make YouTube videos every week and I'm buried under a mountain of craft sup...

Make a wearable version of Cinderella's glass slippers from the latest Disney movie.

Step 1: Watch the Short Video Tutorial Here!

Step 2: You'll Need

White heels (Got these at Payless)

2" wide holographic tape

E-6000 glue

2 clip on earring bases

2 brass butterflies

Flat back Swarovski crystals

Minwax Polycrylic

Small piece of faux suede

Paintbrush and scissors

Step 3: Cut and Stick

Make sure your shoes are clear of dirt and dust

Cut the holographic tape into different sized triangles

Artfully stick them to the shoe with a small space in between each triangle

When you've covered the entire shoe, apply two coats of Minwax Polycrylic and let dry

Add sparkly crystals around the shoe opening with E-6000

Step 4: Now the Butterfly Clips

Cut 4 small circles the size of a quarter from the faux suede (you could use felt or thick fabric)

Glue two circles to each side of the flat part of the clip on earring findings

Slightly bend the butterfly upward so it's not flat

With more E-6000, glue the other metal part of the clip on to the back of the butterfly

Let dry and clip on the front of the shoes
