DIY Ruby Slippers


So there’s only one reason to make your own ruby slippers, right? You guessed it! Z is going to be Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz for Halloween, you won’t believe how cute she looks in her costume. I got lucky and happened to be at Jo-Ann Fabric about a month ago and there was a teeny tiny Dorothy costume in the 50% off last-year’s-costumes-rack so I grabbed it. Every girl needs to dress as Dorothy for Halloween once in her life, right? Right. Of course I had to add my own DIY aspect to her costume so I decided to make her some beautiful ruby slippers.  You won’t believe how easy it is!


You will need: shoes, red glitter, Mod Podge, and a brush.


Brush the shoes with a light layer of Mod Podge.


Sprinkle with the red glitter and shake off excess.


I split the shoe in thirds and did one part at a time.


When you’re done, give the shoe a good shake to get off any loose glitter.


Let the shoe dry a couple minutes then paint with another layer of Mod Podge to really seal so your glitter doesn’t come off. Let dry overnight.


Stay tuned for Halloween and I’ll show you the full costume, Toto and all…
