Oh wow..that’s pretty cool, very unique!
Wow! I’d like to put those on my bookcase as bookends! Very Lady Gaga! Love it. 🙂
How did you solve the problem of sharp edges?
Was is a problem finding an adhesive that could hold weight of the mirror pieces?
Give us a tutorial, pretty please! 🙂
Morning Bees!! I haven’t done the other shoe yet so i’ll take pics as I go with the next one. It was actually very easy and the $20 total made me feel a lot better than the $250 pricetag I saw on a similar pair. I bought a pair of plain satin shoes and some little blue rhinestones, and a simple fabric blue from micheals(let the glue drey overnight so it will hold when you try it on, and be very very careful). I had a broken mirror in house because i have a little hoarder in me that can’t let go of anything incase there’s a perfect craft for it =D. The fun part. I took the mirror outside put it in a bag and smashed it up, really great for relieving wedding planning frustrations! Afterwards it’s as simple as gluing the pieces together on the shoe like a puzzle. If you can’t find pieces that fit quite exactly, instead of getting frustrated, take a different piece and make a new shape(learned that the hard way ;p). As far as the sharp edges go, if you have a dremmel handy that is the neatest looking option(which I haven’t done yet in the pics) if you do not have a dremmel however, a clear drying glue works just fine. Luck and Love Bee’s!
wow very very unique. im not sure if i would actually wear it, but i like it
