I always feel like I never have shoes I like that I want to wear so when I was out thrifting this morning I tried to find a pair that I could do something fun to. I found these simple pumps for only $1.50 so I knew I had to have them! Once I started painting them I remembered a pair I bought 2 years ago that I never wear because they are the most hideous pink that has picked up all the dirt possible in 2 wears and they are slightly too big so they slip off. I pulled them out too and got to work.

I painted both pairs black first, I had to do 2 coats to make sure it was evenly covered.

Once the paint was most of the way dry I glued on some blue, glittery shapes I had in my craft bag onto the first pair. The shapes are foam so I used E-6000 glue to make sure they stuck for good.

For the second pair I glued on 3 small pom poms to the toe and added elastic to the ankle. I painted the E-6000 onto 1/4 of the edge of the elastic then used clothespins to hold it in place for about an hour.
