<span class=”fullpost”><span class=”fullpost”>I went to Old Navy and bought them each a pair of s<span class=”fullpost”>ilver flops. The really comfy ones, yeah, you know whic<span class=”fullpost”>h ones I’m talking about.
I wanted to Glam them up a bit. So I went to AC Moore and bought:
all purpose spray adhesive
and at the grocery store, some small white plastic bags.
First I took the small garbage bags and wrapped the part of the shoe I didn’t want glittered so that it wouldn’t get hit with adhesive my accident. That’s how I roll.
Next, I shook up the spray adhesive and sprayed the silver thong part of the sandal that I wanted to cover in glitter. I then took a spoon and sprinkled the glitter on the thong, and let dry, then cut off the plastic bag.
The glitter wasn’t sticking as well as I imagined and the thong part felt sticky to me, which I didn’t want at all. To resolve this problem, I busted out some Clear Acrylic Sealer that I already had (previously bought at the craft store), and gave the thongs two good coats. That did the trick!Easy, cheap, and fabulous. I know I’d love a pair. In fact, I want to make myself a pair now. You could do this with any color that you wanted to use. Just find the perfect glitter and go to town.
*I did this project outside as it’s very messy.
** I HIGHLY suggest using rubber gloves because if you get the spray adhesive on your hand, it’s really sticky, gross, and takes forever to get off.
