DIY Glitter Shoes!
What you’ll need: -Any pair of flats, canvas shoes, or loafers -Mod Podge (available at craft stores) -Glitter (gold, silver, etc.) -Newspaper & a plate or bowl -Foam brushes or paint brushes -Clear coat spray paint (to make sure the glitter stays on!) First, you’ll want to stuff newspaper down into the shoe so that no glitter or glue gets inside! I removed the laces from my shoes also, just to make sure they didn’t get all gunked up. Pour some of the mod podge onto a plate or into a bowl. I used a paper plate because they are disposable and it was easier to use a flat surface to get a thin coating of the mix. Next, you’ll want to pour some glitter into the mod podge. You’ll want about half as much glitter as there is mod podge, because you don’t want the mix to be too thick. Mix the glitter and mod podge together using one of your foam brushes. Then get ready to paint your shoes! Paint a thin coat of the mix onto the shoe. Make sure that it is smooth and not too chunky because it will dry that way! I didn’t want to paint the whole shoe, so I only painted the front and the back, leaving the middle white. Once you have the mod podge mix on the shoe, you’ll want to pour a SMALL amount of glitter onto the spots you just painted. This just gives the shoe a little extra glitter, and makes sure that there are no white spots. When you’re finished adding the glitter to the shoes, you’ll want to clean off any extra glitter that is on the shoe because you don’t want it to be stuck there when you spray the clear coat. I used a damp paper towel to clean off the edges and the bottom. Last but not least, spray your shoes with a clear coat spray paint. This makes sure that the glitter stays shiny and does not fall off the shoes. Make sure to read the directions on the can and do not get it on your skin or in your eyes. When this is done, you’ll want the shoes to sit and dry overnight to make sure that they are ready to wear.
Make A Galaxy Twisted Tee
On a previous tutorial, I showed you a cute way to make Galaxy Jewelry using some everyday products that you have around the house or in your craft corner. You can click here to see it. I bring it up now because it would go really well with this super cute Galaxy Tee that I found on I Love To Create Blog on Blogspot. Get yourself a loose-fitting black t-shirt and have your sewing machine on stand-by. You will need: Tulip Soft Matte Fabric Paint Tulip Fabric Spray Paint Black T-Shirt Bleach Paint brushes Spray bottle Scissors Pins Tape Get started by: 1. Lay shirt out flat and tape down. 2. Mix water and bleach ratio as 3 parts water to 1 part bleach. Pour into spray bottle. 3. Begin spraying the shirt with mix, focusing on just a couple spots. Once the bleach sets, the shirt will turn red and continue to turn unless you rinse it. If you want more bleaching to occur, spray more as needed. Rinse the shirt as soon as you get the right base color. 3. Begin using your Tulip paint to paint on blotches, swirls and any design that looks like a galaxy. 4. Continue doing this with different paint colors--as many or as few as you like. 5. Mix paint with water as you go along to create different effects. 6. Using a stiff paint brush, flick white paint to get dramatic stars. 7. Let your shirt completely dry and follow this with regular wash and dry cycle. 8. Lay your shirt flat and cut off the sleeves. 9. Flip over, with the back side up and mark the center of the back with a piece of soap or fabric chalk. This line should line up to the bottom of the arm hole. 10. Cut along both shoulder seams. This will separate the front and back. 11. Twist the two back pieces. 12. Pin in place and stitch by hand (or use your sewing machine). Once all this is done, you're ready to hang with your girlfriends and have a totally awesome summer. Don't forget to pair this with a cute bando top or a bralette. You can click here for tutorials to help you make one!
DIY Sponge-Dyed Ombre Sneakers
You'll need: • Gloves • Syringe (1 per color) — Optional but recommended :) • Rubber Cement — Optional • Masking Tape — If you don’t have rubber cement • Sponge • Popsicle sticks for mixing the dye • Fabric Dye (Liquid or Powder) • Paintbrush (Make sure it’s clean — I suggest using a new brush; just buy the cheapest one) • Plastic Cups for mixing dye • Hot water • Newspaper or anything to cover your work area • Wear clothes you don’t mind having fabric dye spilled or splattered on Step 1: Bring out your sneakers :D (old or new) Step 2: Cover all the rubber side strips with Masking tape or Rubber Cement to block out the dye from adhering to the rubber. You can remove it afterwards or wait for it to wear off We won’t be dipping the entire shoe in the dye mixture so there’s no need to cover the soles. Step 3: Now you have to wet/soak your sneakers (canvas part only) with HOT water. You can do so by using a paintbrush first then soaking it more with a sponge. Step 4: Make your dye mixture Step 5: Once you’re done mixing your dye mixture (darkest) ~ take out your atomizer and syringe (optional). I think the smaller atomizers will work best for sneakers as it won’t cover a large surface area. For bigger materials such as shirts, you can use the bigger atomizers (Yes, the one you use when ironing clothes) Step 6: Use your sponge to wet your sneakers again :) Make sure to cover the whole area~! Spray the back part of your shoe with the dye bath. Careful not to over-spray :) You can always spray again :D Step 7 : Now take your brush, dip it in your hot water and carefully blend out your dye (Colored to white areas of your shoe). Yes, we are now creating the ‘ombre effect’. Use more water as you get nearer the middle part of your shoe or wherever you want the ombre to end (white). Afterwards, clean your brush and dip it again in water (clean hot water). Now carefully brush water starting from the WHITE part of your shoe to the lightest ombre — this is to remove or make any hard lines more subtle. Repeat steps until you’re satisfied with your ombre. If you’re using only one color, you can stop here and let your sneaks dry :) Step 8: If you’re planning to have 2 or more colors, simply repeat steps 4 - 7.
