Repeat steps 1 to 3 until you have finished studding your shorts. Please note that you do not have to follow our design stud by stud and we definitely encourage you to search for other ideas for inspiration. While we have to admit that our design is quite popular, there are so many different ways to create a pair of DIY studded shorts. You can spread out the studs all across the shorts and not limit them to just the pockets. You can even stud the front pocket of the shorts for a rocker, vintage vibe. And don’t forget, you can also get studs in different sizes and shapes, such as stars.

DIY Glitter Heels Tutorial

Shopping for the perfect holiday party outfit can seem daunting, especially with all the crowds and long lines you’ll encounter at any fashionable retailer nowadays. When it comes to picking out a dress, you will also want the right shoes and accessories to go along with it. Personally, we, at iLoveSexy, have been head over heels (no pun intended) over the sparkling glitter heels you can find at popular footwear retailers. They come in many different colors of silver, gold, pink and red and are absolutely captivating to behold. However, glitter heels can get quite expensive and will set you back a good chunk of your wallet, which you can be spending on other items anyways. That’s why this week, we came up with a simple and fun DIY glitter heels tutorial that you can do right at home with any pair of old heels you may want to renovate. We used our Pin Up Couture Black Bliss Pumps, which worked out wonderfully to create our version. And if you are interested in using a different pair, we have many other choices in our Pumps Collection. Whatever you decide to choose, you will be happy to know you are saving by creating your own DIY glitter pumps. Wear these to your next holiday party and wow everyone by leaving a trail of sparkle wherever you go. So let’s get started!

 

DIY Glitter Heels - What you will need

 

What you will need:

A pair of high heels
Extra fine glitter
Mod Podge (Satin or Gloss Finish should do)
Sponge brushes
Sandpaper
Scissors
Bowl or plate for mixing

 

DIY Glitter Heels - Step 1

1. Cut a piece of sandpaper that is small enough to fit comfortably on your hand.

 

DIY Glitter Heels - Step 2

2. Use the sandpaper to buff around the heels in circular motions. Sandpapering your heels will allow your glitter mixture to adhere to  the heels.

 

DIY Glitter Heels - Step 3

3. This is how your heels should look after you have buffed them. Do not worry about all the white marks, as you will be covering them up afterwards.

 

DIY Glitter Heels - Step 4

4. Dispense a generous amount of glitter and Mod Podge. The more glitter you mix in, the less coats you will have to paint over.

 

DIY Glitter Heels - Step 5

5. Use the sponge brush to thoroughly mix the glitter into the Mod Podge. Do not worry about the mixture turning a milky pale color, as the Mod Podge will dry clear and the red glitter will show through.

 

DIY Glitter Heels - Step 6

6. Paint a generous coat of the glitter mixture onto your heels, making sure to get every corner. Try to make your coats as even as possible.

 

DIY Glitter Heels - Step 7

7.  This is how your heels will look when it is in the process of drying. After it is dry to the touch, continue to paint on your next layer. Repeat the process until you have your desired opacity and the glitter has covered the shoe completely. We gave our glitter heels a total of 4 coats.

 

DIY Glitter Heels - Finished

And there you have it! Not only are these DIY glitter heels perfect for the holidays, they can also be worn anywhere you can party! Pair them with a black or white dress for a bright pop of color or even with your next Halloween costume. The red glitter reminds us of Dorothy’s Heels in The Wizard of Oz, which would look great with her costume. Or for those of you who are feeling like a princess next Halloween, these heels also go nicely with a Snow White costume. The possibilities are simply endless, which is why this tutorial is definitely something you will want to look into for the holidays.

 

DIY Glitter Pumps - Finished2

To design your own pair of DIY glitter pumps, you don’t only have to follow along our design. We’ve seen some gorgeous designs where others decorated the platform of the heel with glitter as an accent and left the rest bare. Others added glitter to only the stilettos of the heels for an edgy effect.

Whatever you decide to do with your gorgeous DIY glitter heels, you can trust that they are a foolproof way to sparkle and shine at any event. Glitter heels are fun, festive and even durable enough to withstand walking around. And if you ever experience any wear and tear with the glitter in the heels, well, you’ll know exactly how to repair them. We hope you enjoyed this week’s DIY!

DIY Glitter Tights Tutorial

As you know, the holiday season is just around the corner. While most of us are focused on Thanksgiving, we, at iLoveSexy, personally can’t wait for Christmas time. That’s why, we are glittering things up for this week’s DIY! The holidays are all about sparkling Christmas ornaments and pristine snowfall during a Winter Wonderland. And what better time of the year than Christmas time to wear sparkling clothing? This week, we came up with a tutorial for some amazing DIY glitter tights that you can wear to all your holiday parties and excursions. These DIY glitter tights are fun, fashionable and go beautifully with ankle boots and high heels. These glitter tights are sold in retail stores during the holiday season and while you are free to purchase them, why spend money when you can easily make your own? This week’s DIY tutorial does not take up a lot of time and only requires a few steps before you can step out this Christmas season with your new gorgeous DIY glitter tights.   If you have some old nude pantyhose lying around your house, you can use that or you can purchase a new pair of Lycra Sheer Pantyhose off our website, which we have used here. So if you’re looking to spice up your attire for the winter and add this lovely accessory to your wardrobe, let’s get started!
 

 DIY Glitter Tights - What you will need

 
What you will need: 
Nude pantyhose
Spray adhesive/glue
Ultra-fine glitter
Scratch paper/Newspaper
 

DIY Glitter Tights - Step 1

1. Lay out your scratch paper or newspaper to catch the glitters from getting all over your place. Then lay your nude pantyhose flat against the paper.

 

DIY Glitter Tights - Step 2

2. Spray your spray adhesive to the pantyhose in sections.

 

DIY Glitter Tights - Step 3

3. Sprinkle a layer of glitter over the area you have sprayed. Try to sprinkle it as evenly across the pantyhose as possible. Repeat steps 2 and 3 until you have covered both sides of the pantyhose.

 

DIY Glitter Tights - Step 4

4. After you have finished applying glitter to both sides, carefully lift the pantyhose off the paper and gently shake the excess. Place your hand inside the pantyhose to separate both sides, as the spray adhesive may have caused them to stick to one another. Let your pantyhose dry for a couple of hours to make sure that all of the glitters are secured and there is no fall-out.
 

DIY Glitter Tights - Finished

And voila! Aren’t these simply breathtaking? They may look pretty now, but we guarantee you will be even more amazed after you put them on. We used an ultra fine white iridescent glitter to mimic a sparkling snowflake after a snowfall, but you can use other colors such as gold or silver as well.We recommend wearing these with a skirt and ankle boots. Ankle boots have made a big splash in the fashion industry this year, and there’s nothing quite like a pair of booties to dress up an outfit. If you wish to wear shorts or skirts in the winter but want to remain warm, then wearing these DIY glitter tights are the perfect accessory.

Pliers

 

DIY Studded Bra - Step 1

1. Take a stud and press it against the bra to make an indent in the material.

 

DIY Studded Bra - Step 2

2. Use the stiletto to poke two holes where the stud has left its indent. If your bra’s material does not contain padding and is thin enough, then you will not need to use a stiletto.

 

DIY Studded Bra - Step 3

3. Poke the stud’s tines through the holes you have created.

 

DIY Studded Bra - Step 4
