Inspiration: Mod Podge Shoe Redo's

Wednesday, April 18, 2012

What does Mod Podge, the wonder glue, most commonly used for decoupage projects, have to do with fashion? Shoes, that's what! A pair of my own boots have been subjected to the original sealer, glue and finish all-in-one a year ago..

Do you have a pair of old shoes in need of a re-do? Do get your hands on some Mod Podge, but be warned, the wonder glue is not waterproof, my friends.

These look great, I love your boots! I've not really felt confident to do a shoe refashion before as it seems really hard but I think I'll have to give it a go!

Those flats are awesome! Want.

Wow, and I thought I was smart for going to the shoe repair guy and putting new heels on the jazz up ailing shoes and boots. What great ideas - I'm not much of a glitter gal but I really love the glitter on the heel one!

wow this is ultra cute! I am so inspired to do a pair for myself. Fabulous idea!

I tried this project too, but mine didn't turn out quite as well. I really like the green shoes you did the best.

I made these last night. Hopefully you can see the image. I think it was extra difficult to get the lace to stick because it is so "holey". I used some clips to hold it down around the top and then held it tight on the bottom. I held it for a good 5 minutes or so, until it set. Then added some pearl stickers while the modge Podge was still damp. The pearls made the shoe sooooo much better!
