Make My Week - Neon Sparkle

I've seen some cool shoe makeovers lately so I thought I'd have a go at my own.

I bought way too much glitter, as you do I thought shoes would take up a lot more glitter than they did

I masking taped off the sections I didn't want to get coated

I started with a mixed coat of glue and glitter

then added straight glitter

glued over the top and waited

then I gave them a spray coat of clear varnish to finish them off

for $3 shoes and about $5 worth of glitter I think they are a bit of fun
