DIY glitter heels

there is a shoe by bordello that i've been seeing a lot lately. it's a high heel that's simply covered in glitter, however tops off any outfit. since i like saving money and doing-it-myself, i thought this would be a fun project to share.

what you need:
tulip glitter bond (2)
tulip fashion glitter in the color of your choice (2)
a pair of high heels
a few hours time

1. prepare your glitter station, put glitter bond on a sheet of tin foil and lay down paper to catch glitter that may fall off.
2. apply the glitter bond to heel.
3. add glitter, shake off.
4. continue steps 2 and 3 until the entire heel is covered, set aside, let dry 1 hour.
5. once dry, add another layer of glitter to the heel, let dry for another hour.
6. use the glitter bond as a sealer (optional), and wal-ah! fabulous glitter heels!


  1. You should post a picture of you wearing them! They're adorable!

  2. thank you, and i will soon for sure :)

  3. Love them! It also helps to sand the surface before adding glue, it bonds even better! GREAt job, love them!!!
