Cinderella's Glass Slippers DIY

Who doesn't love Cinderella?  This girl has a fairy godmother and an awesome pumpkin carriage....She rocks!  Not to mention the glass slippers.  
Who doesn't want a pair of those even just to display?
Today we're making a wearable version of the glass slippers featured in the latest Cinderella movie which are perfect for cosplay, Halloween or your own perfect little princess.  
Huge thanks to www.Beadaholique.com and www.TapeBrothers.com
Enjoy!  xo, Mark
A wearable glass slipper!
The original from the latest Cinderella movie
They wouldn't be complete without the butterfly shoe clips!
Watch the short video tutorial here!
YOU'LL NEED
White heels (Got these at Payless)
Minwax Polycrylic
Small piece of faux suede
Paintbrush and scissors
 Make sure your shoes are clear of dirt and dust
Cut the holographic tape into different sized triangles
Artfully stick them to the shoe with a small space in between each triangle
When you've covered the entire shoe, apply two coats of Minwax Polycrylic and let dry
Add sparkly crystals around the shoe opening with E-6000
 Cut 4 small circles the size of a quarter from the faux suede (you could use felt or thick fabric)
Glue two circles to each side of the flat part of the clip on earring findings
Slightly bend the butterfly upward so it's not flat
With more E-6000, glue the other metal part of the clip on to the back of the butterfly
Let dry and clip on the front of the shoes

Make sure to leave one behind for your prince!

  2. These are fantastic. I don't usually like 'bling' but I would definitely wear these, with the right outfit of course. They would be so special for a bride.

    1. Hi Emma, the link for the brass butterflies that I used on these shoes is above. The exact butterflies. I got them at beadaholique. Just take a peek at the YOU'LL NEED section. Thanks for the comment!

  5. These are truly spectacular! I am going to be Cinderella for Halloween and think these would be perfect. Do you recall how many Swarovski crystals you used? Also, did you just prefer the triangle ones better than round crystals? Thanks so much!
