So I’m planning on hosting a little customer appreciation party this month and releasing some new items.
I was trying to come up with a cute theme that wouldn’t break the bank. I love a good theme, don’t you!
I would need an outfit to match ( did I mention I love a good theme).
So it started with these. …
I had oogled over similar pairs online and then gagged when I saw the price. As a DDIYER, I knew I could make these at home.
Total cost: approx. $5
High heel shoes ( i didn’t include this in total price because I had these and they were in terrible shape from other halloween costumes)
Silicone caulk (white)
PAINT ( i used pink and brown)
Frosting decorators tip
Newspaper, ziploc bag, paint brush, craft foam scraps.
First spread a layer of caulk all over the shoes and let dry. I used one whole small tube for the pair. I let them dry overnight.
These were previously painted and glittered for a poison ivy costume. So I scraped mossy of the glitter off and started with a blank canvas
I simply used a butter knife and my fibers to smooth it out over the shoes , covering everything but the bottoms.
Then I filled a ziploc bag fired with a Frosting tip with a bit odd the caulk. and made a swirl ( mimicking whipped cream).
I plopped on a fake little cherry ! I got these at a little old lady’s garage sale but you can find ten at hobby lobby or Michael’s too.
I showed them to dry overnight after this step. The next day I painted the hell a light brown and the rest (excluding the whipped cream ) a nice strawberry pink. You could use mint green (mint chip) or cream ( French vanilla) let your favorite flavor be your guide.
I then drizzled some very thin glossy brown paint in the toe area only ( stimulating chocolate syrup) and before this had a chance to dry completely I dropped small pieces of craft foam in fun colors.
At this point you could spray with a finishing / sealing spray like polyacrylic. You will want to use a water based one if you use water based paint.
I skipped this step because I used an outdoor craft paint and waterproof caulk, plus I don’t plan on wearing outdoors.
So, happy shoe makeovers!
These almost look good enough to eat!
