Shoe Revamp - Glitter Chucks

First up, I thought I would show you where I have been...

I finally finished my huge assessment! Wooooo!

Right down to business, I am on a bit of a glitter obsession... and I used to love Converse. But these were a bit worse for wear and as they were brown it was a bit of an odd colour to match. I decided to revamp these after I saw a girl wearing glitter covered runners! My original plan was to use fine glitter all over the shoe, but after a coat of paint I decided that this look would be more everyday appropriate. The best bit about this shoe choice is that they are canvas, therefore the perfect option for paints. Check it out, DIY Glitter Converse!

What you need;
Masking tape
Paint Brushes (Medium and small)
Black Acrylic paint
Gliter Paint

Fine Glitter/Glue (Optional)

I got so excited about finishing them I peeled the tape off and forgot to take photos! Ooops.

Feel free to ask any questions !


  1. I really like what you did with the shoes. Very brave and confident thing to do and they turned out surprisenly good.

    I am not a fan of those style shoes but they certainly look amazing with glitter. You will be getting compliments on those.

  2. ooh! they look amazing! so cool!
