Beads aren't the only thing that are given away during Mardi Gras! Some of our favorites are the sparkly, decorated shoes! We'll show you how to make them for your own Mardi Gras party -- or any other event where you want to have some glam!
Assorted shoes (any size, variety, or style)
Modge Podge (we've tried every type of glue out there, and this is the best)
Sponge-tipped paintbrushes (cheap ones are fine, just make sure you have plenty as they tend to disintegrate with use)
Standard glitter (at least 4 oz.; don’t get the expensive, ultra-fine glitter, you want the regular type)
Hot glue gun and glue sticks
Cardboard box (like a shirt/gift box, with a smooth bottom and no folded flaps; 1 per glitter color)
An assortment of embellishments: trims, laces, puffballs, old toys, bows, old Christmas ornaments, things you find under the seat cushions of your couch, etc.
Plastic tarps or paper to cover your working area
Newspaper or cardboard pieces (for drying shoes)
