But don’t think that means you can’t rock some stellar new pumps to match your party dress. With this super easy and cheap DIY, you can turn tired old shoes into sparkling new ones just in time for New Year’s!

craft materials




Mix paint and 1/2 the glitter together

Pour about 2 tablespoons of glue and 1/2 of your glitter into a shallow bowl. Since we had two gold colors, we mixed them for added sparkle.
