Pumped Up Kicks

One of the first pictures that I pinned on my Pinterest were these glittery Miu Miu sneakers. 

I've been wanting to re-create them and I finally did this week. So my grungy looking Chucks went from this...

To this...

I used the tutorial from Honestly WTF to make these sparklers, but changed some things a bit. I didn't have the fancy rhinestones in settings so I used the regular rhinestones. Also I used gold ribbon for the laces. Since the shoes I used are slip-ons, I had to fake out the bottom three holes with the ribbon and some glue. Of course if you use full lace-ups, you won't run into this problem. 

This is a great way to give new life to an old pair of shoes. Plus if you hit the sales or use the coupons from your local craft store, you can do this project for under $15. 

 I'm so stoked with the way they turned out that I'll be wearing them when I go to Disneyland today!

Speaking of "Pumped Up Kicks", I came across this video of Zac Efron and Taylor Swift covering the Foster the People song on Ellen. Enjoy.
