Pretty jazzed that with a few supplies, I was able to turn a plain pair of shoes into a smoking slipper inspired by my fave Miu Miu’s! Learn how after the break!


What you need:
Smoking Slippers (found mine on the sale rack at Urban Outfitters)
Iron-on applique
Rowenta Iron
Flat back Crystals
Metallic Gold Sharpie
Super Glue

What to do:
First, color the outline and the heel of your shoe with with the metallic gold Sharpie
Next, Cut your applique to fit the toe of your shoe
Adhere embellishment to the shoe by ironing directing on the toe.
Add your crystals around the heel my dabbing a tiny bit of super glue then placing the crystal.

      Ohhhh, I like the idea of doing on pumps!

  5. Meghan says:

    i couldn’t wait to see this when I saw the inspiration. These turned out fantastic. What about using a fabric paint pen instead of a sharpie? Just for staying power?

    1. Jenni says:

      I have been having good luck with the Sharpie staying, but the paint pen would absolutely work too!
