Make Sparkle-Toed Shoes With Glitter and Mod Podge

Make sparkle toed shoes with glitter and mod podge
Somehow I have accumulated about a dozen pairs of ballet flats and they are all either grey, black or brown. I wanted to play around with a pair to see if I could add a little pop of color.

Not long ago, I made sparkle dresser knobs with only some Mod Podge and glitter and they were really easy so I thought I’d see if it would work on shoes.

All you need is a pair of ballet flats, Mod Podge, and glitter. With spring on the way, I chose a pastel blend of glitter.


If you want to trace a half moon on the tips of the shoes with pencil to make sure they are the same, go ahead. If you’re like me and don’t want another step and really don’t need them to beΒ perfect, just grab your Mod Podge (or DIY Mod Podge) and get started.

Using a sponge brush (or any type of small paint brush), paint a half moon shape with glue onto the shoe.


Then immediately sprinkle your glitter all over the gluey area and press down to really make it hold.


You’ll probably have some stray sparkles on the shoes, so just wipe those off with a wet paper towel.


Let that dry and put another layer of Mod Podge on top of the glitter. It will look white, but it will dry clear. This will seal your sparkles down.


Let that dry and you are done! Super simple.



So, on days where you don’t want to worry about what to wear, throw on a black shirt and black pants and let your shoes do the talking. πŸ™‚

  1. Very cute! Great idea for those of us who tend to scuff up the end of our shoes. It would extend the life of our favorite flats! πŸ™‚ My daughter would also love this, since she’s the queen of sparkles.

What do you think? I would really love to know!!
