Mr Honi and I worked furiously this weekend (he did all the manual labour type stuff) and we finally got our back courtyard garden sorted out. I will post some before and after shots soon. It is now our own little tranquil haven.
After much searching, I realised that I couldn’t find a pair of red ruby “Dorothy” slippers that matched what I wanted, so on Saturday night I decided to make some. I used:
- a pair of ballet flats ($14.95 from Rubi Shoes)
- a glue mixture I made up which consisted of red glitter poster paint, mixed with Tiger grip craft glue (which dries clear)
- some red glitter.
Then all I did was paint the glue onto the shoe in sections and tipped the glitter over the gluey area. I then let them dry for about 48 hours. I totally love them, and the glitter seems to be holding pretty well!
I'm considering making customer orders....what do you think??
