I've been a fan of the metallic heel for awhile now... especially ever seeing the ones at Topshop. But being me (and now that I'm on a budget) there was no way I wanted to drop $150 or more on them. I had an old hair of H&M booties that are in relatively good shape for being 3 years old but they were def. screaming for a make-over. That's when it hit me to DIY my own metallic heel.
What you'll need:
- Old pair of high heels shoes or booties
- Metallic fabric paint
1. Start with one coat of paint and even strokes around the heel.
2. Try to paint the back of the heel as well.
3. Wait for the paint to dry before applying the 2nd coat. A 3rd coat might be needed.
I've been thinking about this DIY project for sometime but I had some serious commitment issues-- much like when I'm taking any of my old clothing and giving them a make over. I'm glad that I just committed to this project.
What do you think of this DIY project?
