Hello…..i’m back! We were away for a while, so crafting was left a little behind! I finished my project today! I had a pair of flats covered with sequins. I love those shoes. They are really comfortable and i can wear them almost all year round! You know the best part ? The sequins were gold, but…i could just flip them over and the shoes turned from gold to silver! It’s like having two pairs of shoes! As much as i loved them though, after 4 years the sequins in some parts had broken or lost their color. Especially on the sides and on the front of the shoes. So i thought i should give them a new look.
See? Gold or silver!
I took off all the sequins! That was really time consuming and tiring but i made it! It was relaxing though! Like doing yoga, only more uncomfortable for my eyes! Anyway, i finally made to take all the sequins out after several hours! I liked their sparkly look, so i gave them that again! Only red this time. I mixed glitter with white glue, in which i added some water to make it easier to work with and got started!
All the sequins removed!
After 2 coats of glue and glitter…
I covered them with 4 coats of glitter to get the result i wanted. I did not use any sealing material because the glue worked great and there was no need for that. I let them dry and put them on!
After 4 coats
Still there was something missing! I got a piece of black tulle and glued it around the shoe and for the final touch i added the buttons from the flowers we have above our sofa. I will make something new to hand there! The shoes look much better with these details and as good as new!
Hope you liked them!
