I’m very excited to show you my latest DIY project! After planning to DIY these babies, I decided they were a bit much and that I’d prefer something more subdued. Enter the Barneys CO-OP Glitter Boot. The moment I saw them I knew I found my next DIY inspiration (well, after I had a quick whimper about not being able to afford them).
Old Navy Ankle Boots $25 (I got them for $20 at my local store!)
I searched the web for some similar boots with a stacked heel and vertical line and found great luck at Old Navy of all places. (They’re super comfortable too!)
Tan fabric paint and Martha Stewart glitter in “Smoky Quartz” via Michaels.
Squeeze some paint on the boot and spread with brush.
Sprinkle glitter over the wet paint.
Make sure all paint is covered by the glitter then gently shake off.
Wait until paint is completely dry before brushing off the excess glitter.
So, for $25 (including glitter and paint), I have my own version of the $595 pair- score!
A few people have asked me how to keep the glitter from flaking off— I got a tip to use hairspray on them and it seems to be working perfectly. The glitter really didn’t come off so much because I used plenty of fabric paint, but the hairspray is keeping the extra bits on nicely! And please remember to post your DIY photos on my Facebook page so I can see how they all turned out :)
