Glitter sneakers

Bored with your usual white canvas sneakers or just want to add some glamour into your everyday comfy walks?!?! You're in the right place then!
I got inspired while window shopping in Milan some time ago, Miu Miu always manages to put a smile on my face. I found this amazing tutorial by Honestly...WTF, but I wanted to personalize them a bit. This is my adapted version that is less Miu Miu, more me, and the last, but not least, way less expensive. Have fun glittering!

You'll need:

- plain white sneakers
- Mod Podge or any fabric glue
- glitter
- brush
- scissors
- tape
- plastic tray or a cup

First you'll need to tape all the parts you don't want to cover with glitter, don't forget to cover the lace holes (if the glue gets in, it blocks them), to avoid the unnecessary cleaning afterwards, prevent!

Mix glitter with glue (2 parts glue to 1 part glitter)

Time to start painting, apply a thin layer of the mixture and allow to dry. Add a second and a third layer, but make sure they're not thick, takes less time to dry and the outcome is better.

Leave it to dry well and remove the tape. Add satin ribbon in the color you prefer instead of laces and enjoy your walk!
