With the holidays coming up, the world gets a lot more festive. While we love celebrating on special occasions with a snazzy heel, we still like to have a little bit of shine without needing a party for an excuse. Thus… the glitter oxford. Casual enough for the everyday (and good for walking), this glitter oxford also adds a bit of spunk to an otherwise ordinary shoe. Ready to add a sparkly spring to your step?


-Mod Podge

-glitter (best results are using fine glitter)

-small paintbrush

-dixie cups

Gather all your supplies on a newspaper, or a surface that can afford to get a little glittery. We used a giant piece of construction paper.

Start off by filling the cup a quarter of the way with mod podge. Then, add the equal amount of glitter- creating a 1:1 ratio. Mix well with the paintbrush.

Now, here’s the fun part. Paint however you want! Let your inner child come out. We used the shoe as a template and followed the lines.

Paint in segments so the mod podge doesn’t dry too quickly. This way, you can add a final layer of glitter on top of the glitter glue to really cement in the sparkles. Let dry.

Voila! It’s almost hard to believe how easy this is.
