So grab your girlfriends – it’s time for a shoe makeover!


First, grab a pair of plain high heels. We found this pair for only $16 at a local discount shoe store!
Next, assemble your favorite decorations (feathers, bling, ribbon, glitter, etc), adhesive (Mod Podge, Hot Glue gun and glue), scissors, paper to cover the table, old shoe box (for sprinkling glitter or painting), craft brushes and sponges, and put on your creative thinking hat.
Now, it’s time to start decorating!


How to create a pink-tastic feathered pair of blinged-out heels:
1. With a hot glue gun, apply string of silver sequins at around the shoe’s toe by placing a line of hot glue and pressing the string of sequins carefully with an end of a marker/pencil/pointer object.

2. Next apply pink feathers from the heel to the toe of each side with a glue gun. You can do this carefully by placing hot glue onto the shoe (one feather at a time) then carefully using pointer object (or end of a marker/pencil) to press “stem” into glue.

2. One at a time, apply black feathers to the outside of each shoe with hot glue then press on gems with sticky backing.

3. Cut pink ribbon and form into shape of breast cancer pink ribbon. Use a hot glue gun to secure ribbon onto toe of shoe. Then add a dot of hot glue and jewel on top of where the ribbon crosses to secure the ribbon in place – with bling!

4. Using a craft brush, paint platform at the toe of the shoe with Mod Podge. Hold back feathers and sprinkle on light pink glitter.

5. Using a craft brush, paint heel of the shoe with Mod Podge. Hold back feathers and sprinkle on hot pink glitter.

6. Let the shoes and glue sit at least overnight to seal and harden.
