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.

Bra
Feather boa
Ribbon
Rhinestones
Small bows

DIY Christmas Bra - Step 1

1. To make gluing your  rhinestones to the bra easier, try to get an idea of what sort of design you’d like to create and lay out your rhinestones for easy picking.

 

DIY Christmas Bra - Step 2

2. Use hot glue to attach the rhinestones to the bra with whatever design you have come up with. We went with a randomized, clustered design for our rhinestones using different shades of red, green and silver.

 

DIY Christmas Bra - Step 3

3. After you have finished gluing on your rhinestones, attach a small bow in the center of the bra. This step is optional but we feel that the small red bow really gives it a festive look as the centerpiece of the bra.

4. Measure a piece of ribbon vertically against the bra and cut it according to the measurements. Hot glue the ribbon to the bra.

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.

DIY Choker for Vampire Costumes

Mysterious and beautiful, vampires are the creatures of the night that we both fear and revere. From ancient myths to young adult novels, the legend of the vampire has cemented itself as part of our culture. Whether found in movies, books or television shows, the danger and allure of the vampire is something that we have all fantasized about. Darkness and romance surrounds the vampire and we cannot help but indulge in our intrigue with the enigmatic being. That is why for this week, we decided to go in a different direction. We have ventured to the darker side of Halloween and bring you this captivating DIY choker tutorial that will look amazing with our sexy vampire costumes from our Vampire collection. If you are feeling more scary than sweet this Halloween, then a sexy vampire costume is perfect for you.

DIY Choker - What you will need

 

What you will need: 

Embroidered lace
Satin ribbon
Broach
Brass chain (thin)
Brass jump rings
Hot glue gun
Scissors

 

DIY Choker - Step 1

1. Measure your embroidered lace against your neck to determine how much material you need. Use scissors to cut according to the desired size.

 

DIY Choker - Step 2

2. Cut your ribbon in half.

 

DIY Choker - Step 3

3. Dispense hot glue to one of the ribbon and attach it to the edge of the lace. Repeat this step for the other side.

 

DIY Choker - Step 4

4. This is how your DIY choker should look like so far.

 

DIY Choker - Step 5

5. To attach the broach to the lace, you will want to dispense hot glue in sections to the corners of the broach. Be careful not to burn yourself as the hot glue will heat up the metal on the back of the broach.

 

DIY Choker - Step 6

6. Open up a jump ring and loop it onto the bottom of the lace. Using pliers or something you can pick up the brass chain with, slide the chain onto the jump ring. Use another jump ring to attach the other side of the chain. Repeat this step for as many chains as you wish to add.

 

DIY Choker - Finished

And there you have it! While this DIY tutorial was incredibly simple, the finished results certainly do not look like it was done in just six steps. This choker is elegant, glamorous and can be worn with Gothic or Victorian-inspired costumes or outfits for a sexy yet vamp-like look.

 

DIY Choker - Close up view

And here is a close-up picture of all the materials put together. We feel that the silver broach really helps complement the lace and helps give it its Gothic look. The brass chains add a weathered, Victorian element to the necklace. You can also use silver chains if you prefer a more modern feel to your jewelry.

 

DIY Choker - On the neck

Putting on the DIY choker is easy and only requires that you tie a nice, neat bow with the ribbon.  You can either wear your hair up or down, but if you really want to show off the DIY choker, then wearing your hair up would definitely draw attention to your neck area.

Entering the world of burlesque is like entering a fantasy world. Dancers tantalize your visual senses with the art of tease and seduction while looking fabulous in leather, fringe and feathers.

DIY Fascinator - Finished

And now, your DIY fascinator is complete! These steps we took to create this gorgeous headpiece were incredibly easy and straightforward and don’t take that much effort to put together. You can create your DIY fascinator in many different ways by adding rhinestones, different colored flowers and netting to match whatever outfit you plan to wear. And here’s a little secret about this DIY fascinator–it can be worn in two different ways, depending on which look you would like to sport.

 

DIY Fascinator - Worn in the back

You can wear the DIY fascinator with the feather and netting pointing towards the back of your head for a sophisticated and elegant burlesque look. This headpiece does look quite posh, doesn’t it?

Or you can wear it with the feather and tulle facing towards the front a more dark, mysterious and Gothic burlesque look. The gorgeous, soft feather and netting that grazes your hair will subtly bring attention to your eyes. Which look do you prefer? Either way looks incredibly gorgeous, and we just can’t decide on which one we would go with. To help make your decision easier, let’s take a look at some of our Burlesque showstoppers for the upcoming Halloween!

DIY Lace Bunny Ears - What you will need

 

What you will need:
