✄ DIY tutorial: Glittery wedges

What you'll need:
A pair of shoes
Glitter-glue (or glitter and glue)
A paint brush
Masking tape (optional)

1. Gather all you materials together and get ready to re-vamp your old pair of shoes!
2. This is the part where you can mark out the area you've chosen with masking tape (I didn't bother because it's time consuming and I have quite a steady hand).

3. Now it's time to start your first coat of glitter-glue (don't worry if the glitter isn't spreading evenly as you will need to do several coats).

Once I'd done a coat I stepped back to look at the shoes and I wasn't happy. They looked a bit weird because they didn't have a platform under the whole shoe like these have:
Topshop LUCITE glitter platform sandals £80
So I decided to paint another part of the shoe with the glitter-glue so it balances out.
Here is the finished product after 3 coats (I think I'll do a few more coats just because I'm addicted now!)

What do you think of my latest DIY? If you like what you see then spread the word. If you have a go at it please credit me and don't forget to send me your pictures.
