MY DIY | Faux Beaded Heels & Contest

When I was little, I was always a fan of the Miss America Pageant. For a crafty kid, what’s not to love about the glam and sparkle of the contest, plus it was always amazing to see the ladies strut their stuff in 5″ stilettos. I am super excited to share with you all a contest where you can submit your own DIY shoes to win a trip to Miss America and a pair of Gucci shoes! Details after the break! 

Since 1921, the Show Us Your Shoes Parade has been an opportunity for Miss America contestants to display their creative side to the public by decorating their shoes to match their unique personalities. And now, this is your opportunity to display your creativity too!

Upload a picture of your most decked out, fabulous, DIY shoe creations below or directly to Instagram or Twitter with the hashtag #Showusyourshoes by September 1st for a chance to win luxury overnight accommodations for two at an Atlantic City casino resort hotel, two VIP tickets to the Show Us Your Shoes Parade (Saturday, September 14), two tickets to the Miss America Competition (Sunday, September 15), and a $500 gift certificate for a pair of Gucci shoes.
