How-To: Glitter and Trim Ballet Flats


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!
