These glittering Wonder Woman inspired shoes are my new favorite thing. It’s simple, inexpensive and you can complete them in one afternoon. Just watch out for one thing: my brother claims my house looked like there had been a “glitter apocolypse” after I finished them!
It’s easy to start this. Find a pair of cheap flats, preferably something with a faux suede exterior so that the glue and glitter will hold. (I found this pair at my local thrift store for $4, but they’re not bad full price at Target at $12.99 either!)
Here’s how you do it:
1. Print out a small version of the logo. I found my logo to here and printed it at 40% its original size. Cut out the logo very carefully.
2. Put a small piece of tape on the back of the logo and put it on a roll of painter’s tape. Very carefully use an X-acto knife to trace out the logo in tape. Slowly peel it off of the roll and place it on the spot on the shoe you want the logo to appear. You will want to ensure that no corners are sticking up. You can also use a ruler to measure the perfect center if you are putting it on the toe, like above.
3. Using fabric glue, paint on the glue in even sized sections. You’ll want to do this small section at a time in order to get the best bond. Sprinkle the glitter over each section repeatedly. When you get to the logo, be very careful to ensure no part of your tape peels up.
4. Let the glitter bond dry thoroughly. Once dry, use a pin to scrape off the dry glitter that covers your painter’s tape logo. Slowly peel this off.
5. Use a fine point permanent marker to trace the shape that remains. Then use a very small brush to apply more glue and your gold glitter. Allow this to dry thoroughly.
6. Now, cut the logo in half in the logical areas along the lines in the “W” shape. This will be a template for you to draw on two more lines with the black fine point marker again.
7. When done, use hairspray to seal the glitter. Be careful not to get it into the middle part of the shoe!

Total cost: My total was $7 for the shoes and the matching glitter, because I had the rest of the supplies.
