Skip down the street with some extra shimmer in your step with this tutorial for glittering and trimming your own ballet flats from Julie at Doe a Deery!

They say imitation is the finest form of flattery, and if that’s the case, then Mini Boden should be super flattered. I love stores like Mini Boden. I have been eyeing these darling little glitter ballet flats since they came out. It’s just not realistic for me to spend forty bucks on a pair of glitter shoes. Let’s be honest, the glitter always rubs off the toes after a couple of months anyway.

When I realized I could make them for under $10, I decided to go for it. This project can be done for pennies if you already have everything on hand.


This would be a great project for kids and adults!
