Do you have a favorite pair of heels? They are so comfortable… How about upcycling your favorite pair of heels into a Disney themed pair? Let’s be honest, when it comes to shoes we all have a “favorite pair”, specially when it comes to heels! There is always that “one” pair that you could wear EVERY SINGLE DAY. I’m not different, I have a favorite pair of heels too!
Of course, they are black and because I would wear them almost every day, they were getting old. As most of you know, I am also a Disney fan, and I’m sure I’m not the only one that usually brings home extra maps from the parks from every trip. Well, you draw your own conclusions… old heels, extra maps, some mod podge… you got it! I mod-podged my favorite pair of heels!
Now, before you go crazy on me… look at them!
Here is what I did, first I cut the map in pieces, the smaller the better. This will help them stick to the shoes without creating many folds. On a glass container(It will be easier to wash), I poured some mod podge and a few drops of water. You want the mix to be a bit runny, this will help the paper stick. Then you just start gluing the maps to your shoes using the mixture, be careful not to use too much glue that the paper will peel, and not too much that it wont stick. After the first coat, let it dry for a couple hours, then return and do another coat. You will do this at least three times.
Finally, use a blade to cut the edges off on the sides to finish them. And of course, have mod podge ready for a retouch a few weeks after wearing them. And you are set! You have a pair of Disney Themed Heels! Yay!
