It’s not secret…we are a family of wide footed people. To top that, we are a family of big footed people too. Finding shoes to fit those feet is often a problem especially for our daughter 16 year old daughter Kalissa. Last year hunting for Prom shoes was a nightmare. She finally settled with some silver flip flop type shoes because honestly, it was the only pair that fit her women’s size 12 wide feet.
This year we started looking for shoes for Prom early and no luck….that is until she came across this pair of shoes….
She found these shoes at Wal-Mart off the $3 sale rack. The shoes fit but they were white..UGH. She wanted glitter and sparkle so what’s a girl with size 12 wide feet to do…create some glitz and glamour with a glue and glitter. (This idea is courtesy of our son’s girlfriend Jen who blogged about the process here.) Kalissa is painting on a mixture of glitter and glue on the shoes.
I was definitely skeptical….but look!
Glitter and glue, then clear gloss paint all rolled together to make sparkly Prom shoes!
They aren’t perfect, but she has a long dress so the shoes will only be peaking our here and there. It’s amazing what a little glitter will do to spark a 16 year old’s heart.
I’m not sure but rumor has it that she just might try another of Jen’s crafty blog post ideas…glitter fingers!
