Well hello there darlings!
I'm back today with another super simple DIY just in time for Valentine's Day. If you follow me on instagram, you may recall seeing a pair of oxfords that I glitterized a while back during a DIY night at my house with friends. (Unsure of how to glitter up your shoes? - jump here for an easy tutorial).
Well, I didn't want to stop there with those beauties. My poor oxfords were old, bent, and quite water stained - so after prettying them up with lavender glitter, I thought, might as well put a heart on it too! I have a ton of pretty vintage scrap material left over from dresses that I hem, so what better way to put it to use?! (I was inspired by a pair of Irresistible Choice shoes that I have with flowers on the back of them.)
Enough chit-chat, let's cut to the chase.
What you need is:
-A pair of shoes
-Paper (for your heart template)
-Pretty scrap material
-A craft brush or paint brush
Create and cut out your heart template. You'll want to decide how big you want the heart to be on your shoe first and measure to make sure it fits properly on the back.
Pin the paper heart to your material and cut it out. (Pinning it to a corner makes it so much easier since you will not need to cut the full way around)
Apply Mod Podge to the back of your material heart with your brush.
Stick the material heart onto the shoe. If you are sticking it onto the back like I did, be sure that the point of the heart matches up with the back seam of the shoes. (As you can see, the top of my heart was a little off center since this shoe was very bent.)
Apply a coat of Mod Podge over the heart to seal it.
Let it dry. If necessary, you can apply another coat. (I only needed one coat)
You are finished!
Now your feet are as cute as can be :-)
Talk soon darlings.
