So, my super talented (and gorgeous) niece, Julia came up with a most excellent fix for a pair of new shoes that sustained some damage to the heels.
How to Fix Scuffed Heels
By Julia Olson
I bought these shoes to wear at a wedding. I literally took one step out of our door, and my shoe went through the stair grate. And got stuck. Of course, it ripped the shoe. First, I colored it with sharpie to hide it. Then it just got worse. But the rest of the shoe looked brand new.
So, I was thinking about covering it…and my second thought was GLITTER! So, I bought some fine black glitter. Of course, I had to buy a whole pack of every color under the sun just to get the black…but I got home and applied some “lock tight” fabric, flexible adhesive with an old paint brush. I sprinkled on the glitter and then let it dry half an hour. Then I repeated the process to make it a little more thick and durable. I let that dry another half our, and walked out the door in them!
The Shoes Before
Genius, right?! Julia pointed out to me that this could easily work for a pair of kids shoes…and we all know the kind of wear and tear kids shoes can sustain! You might even be able to take a pair you get on consignment and spruce them up.
Well done, Julia. Thanks for sharing your clever solution.
