The Devil Wears a DIY Prada

Prada 1

Fashionistas,

Join me as I drool over Prada shoes. They’re elegant and absolutely a thing of perfect sin!

For the not so financially capable, Prada magnifique is a loathsome affair. Imagine wanting to own one but never can?! Oh how we all wish Cinderella’s fairy godmother exists!

Prada 2

But we’ll manage to get you through my dear! I have here a do-it-yourself Prada-esque pumps!

You’ll need the following:

-Forever 21 Double Strap Mary Jane Heels
-ScotchBlue Painter’s Tape
-Montana Gold Spray Paint in Red
-Krylon Spray Sealer

How to do it:

–  Decide how much of the toe you would like to paint, then tape off that portion using painter’s tape.

–  Once taped, wrap the heel and inside of the shoe with a plastic bag or paper to shield it from the spray paint. In a well-ventilated area, spray the uncovered portion of the shoe with the red spray paint. Depending on the shade and opacity of red you want, you may need to apply a few coats.

–  Allow the paint to dry completely overnight. Then spray the exposed part of the shoe with a clear sealer, which will protect the color. Wait at least an hour to dry completely, and then remove the tape and plastic covering.

Best of luck on your artwork!

XOXO,

Nikki ♥
