[InStyle DIY] Party Glitter Pumps

December is officially here which means that holiday party season is upon us! Although I am not a big fan of the cold (growing up in Wisconsin was killer) I do love getting dressed up and sipping on festive cocktails. I tend to stick to LBDs in the winter months, and jazz up the look with sparkle elsewhere. For my December column in InStyle I tried out the absolutely amazing Krylon Glitter Blast to bedazzle a pair of pumps. I was blown away by how easy it was to use. I wonder if I could cover a wall in my room with this…too much? Never. 

Supplies: Pumps (I found these for $25) and Krylon Glitter Blast and Clear Sealer
Place Strips of masking tape over the body of the shoe so only the heel is left uncovered.
Hold the can of Gold Glitter Blast eight inches from the heel and spray. Let dry for 10 minutes, then repeat. Once the second layer of glitter is dry, spray sealant on the heel.

Allow to set overnight, then remove tape. 

Share the step-by-step on Pinterest!

    I know so many girls who would love a pair of these! Maybe an idea for a Christmas party one year? Thanks for this really cool!


  23. couturearts says:

    I may have to do this. I really want glitter pumps, but every pair I see looks cheap and costs a lot. DIY glitter pumps will cost less and won’t look any worse.

    There is no such thing as too much glitter.

    Followed the instructions and when I removed the tape, almost all of the top leather coat was pulled off. Had to spray the glitter over the whole pump to cover.

  26. OH WOW I always wanted shoes like those and never thought about doing that!
