What is better than a pair of Converse? A pair that’s all sparkly of course! This year for Brianna’s hip hop routine they asked the ladies to wear white glittered sneakers. I searched everywhere. Finally I decided we are making our own.
I couldn’t find a pair of white converse anywhere. So instead I bought the pink from Kohls and bleached those babies. I used the Clorox Bleach Pen and set them in the warm sun. Soon enough they were white. I washed them twice and let them air dry before beginning the makeover.
Thinking of making a pair of your own? Here is what you need. Glitter, Mod Podge, Jewel-It, E6000, Rhinestones, Small Paint Brush, and a pair of White Sneakers.
I used the Rhinestones on the front of the shoe. I put a small amount of E6000 down at a time and quickly started placing the stones. I used a variety of sizes for this.
I used the tip of the Jewel-It glue to spread the glue evenly along the canvas. Once I covered a space with the glue I started to cover it in glitter. This is a messy job. If you are doing it inside I would use a dish to collect the glitter or take it outside.
After allowing the glitter to dry for 24 hours I took a small paint brush and sealed the glitter with Mod Podge. The Mod Podge dries clear and we didn’t loose any of the fabulous sparkle. Once the Mod Podge dried she finally got to try on her new sneakers.
