Make it: Glittered Glass Slipper Ornaments 

I love girly ornaments! Sparkly and sweet - this cute little shoe ornament is perfect for the "Shoe Queen" in your life....or perhaps you are a "shoe queen"???  I know I am! They are easy to whip up and can be customized to any colors. 

Plastic Glass Slipper
E6000 Glue
Large Jump-ring
Mod Podge - Gloss, Matte or Hard Coat
Ultra Fine Glitter (this is bubble gum pink from my glitter line)
Old Book Pages
Hot Glue Gun Helpers
Hot Glue Gun & Sticks
 Let's Make 'Em

Create a hanger by, attaching a large jump-ring to the inside back of the shoe.  Make sure at least 1/2 is sticking out over the shoe.

Gather your glitter and Mod Podge supplies.

Brush the Mod Podge onto the shoe.

 Sprinkle glitter onto the shoe.  I like to do this over a file folder.  The folder collects the excess and I can easily pour it back into the jar. 

Cut out the word of your choice from a book page.

Apply a coat of Mod Podge to the the front of the shoe.  Place the cut out into the Mod Podge and top-coat with a layer of Mod Podge.  Allow to dry.

 Hot glue gems to the front of your shoes.  Use the HGGH tweezers so you don't burn yourself.

 Hold the gems in the twezzer and apply the hot glue to the back.

 Continue adding more gems.

Hot Glue a gem to the back.

 Tie a ribbon hanger to the end.


  1. I LOVE this ornament!!! Just purchased a little girly girl pink feather tree for my granddaughter...this would be perfect on it!

    Where'd you find the plastic slipper?

  2. Hi Anne,

    You can find them in the bridal section at some craft stores. They are usually used for party favors. You can fill them with candy and wrap with cello. I use them so much that I stock them at my supply shop. Here is a link to the embellishments page at my shop.
