However, once I found out they were 49 cents, I was sold. I knew I could fix them somehow! If not, I was only out 49 cents!
First, I carefully removed the gems from each of the shoes. The damaged one had been glued on crooked while the other one was sewn on.
Then, I painted each of the gems with red sparkle nail polish I already had. This is a great idea to change the color of any faux gem. You could repaint an old rhinestone necklace or earrings! Anyway, that solved the issue of the gems. They both match!
After that, I found some cute tulle trim at Joann's and used my glue gun to attach it around the back of the gem. This solved the issue of hiding the part where the pink color had been torn off by the glued on gem.
Finally, I re-attached the gems to the shoes using some Goo glue.
A beautiful pair of shoes for under $2.00 in under 10 minutes! Aren't they going to be cute birthday shoes? Wait until you see the skirt I made that goes with them!!
|Ready to PARTY!|
Next time you see a pair of shoes in disrepair, think about how you might be able to fix them up!
Easier Than I Thought!
