I bet these glittered blue heels made you drool. I know, I’m a fan of bold and sparkling shoes myself too! But hey, you don’t need to buy an expensive pair to get the look: you can make it yourself!

Step one: Find a pair of plain high heels that you don’t mind working on. Remember: choose a comfortable pair so you don’t have to worry about calluses on your wedding day!

Step two: Hold the shoe from the inside and start applying a very light layer of Mod Podge on a small section.

Step three: Slowly pour some blue glitter over the section and then move on to the next one, until the whole shoe is covered in glitter. Make sure you add a receptacle (like a bowl or baking sheet) under the shoe to catch the excess glitter and avoid any mess.

Step four: Set the shoes upright and let the glitter dry. Then, add a thick coat of Mod Podge to keep the glitter in place. Leave them to dry and then they’re ready to rock!

Tip: Work through small sections at a time so the mod podge won’t dry before you add glitter.
