Glittered up boots…

My kids are so hard on shoes it’s ridiculous!  I feel like all I do is buy shoes for them.  Momma wants a new pair of shoes!  So anyway, little Miss Drama Queen got a new pair of “Boots with the Fur” from grandma about a month ago and can you believe it the girl wore out the toes on them already.  It’s crazy!  I don’t know what to do about this.

So me being me I was going to see if I could fix them.  I can’t mess them up any more than they already are.  I had it in my head that I could cover the toe with a patch of fabric in the same color but I didn’t have anything in my stash that would work right.  Plus I had no idea how I was going to attach it to the boot.  Until I found some glitter.

Then it hit me!

Lets glitter up the toes…

I didn’t want to get any extra glitter or glue on any other part of the boot except the toe so I taped it off.  I applied a really thick layer of epoxy 6000 glue to the toe and poured on my silver glitter.  Yeah glitter!  I set them aside and let it dry for 24 hours.  I came back with some Elmer’s spray glue over the top of the glitter just to make sure the glitter wasn’t going to come off  at least for a while.  Let’s hope we can get a few more months out of these cute little boots.

Not bad compared to what they looked like before.  Plus now they are Glittered up boots with the fur.
