Glitter Converse Shoes Makeover

With how fast kiddos grow, sometimes shoes are still in good shape by the time they out grow them. Which is exactly the case when Mr.N out grew his Converse shoes. I told Miss.A she could have them but her 1st thoughts were… “they look like boys shoes!” So my crafty mind instantly thought well… how about we upcycle them into new girly looking shoes! She loved the idea so we went to Target to pick up some glitter & new laces then while she was at school I got to work to surprise her with her new shoes.


  • Shoes
  • Laces {ours were only $1 at Target in the party supplies section}
  • Mod Podge
  • Paint Brush
  • Glitter
First wash then remove old laces. Then paint Mod Podge on one part of the shoe. I found that doing this in sections was easier, as the Mod Podge will sometimes dry before your ready for the glitter.

Next sprinkle on your glitter to the Mod Podge you painted on the shoes.
Once your all done and your shoes are dry, spray shoes with hair spray. {Yes… hair spray. haha it will seal and keep the glitter from falling off} Then add your laces and your ready to hit the street.
Miss.A loved them and thought they were perfect. I for one loved the fact that for only a few bucks I was able to give her a “new” pair of shoes… that I am sure she will out grow in a few months. {haha they’ve been growing like weeds lately!} For now though they are perfect for this little tween, and were a great way to save money while upcycling something old into something new.
