i have been coveting a pair of cap-toe heels ever since megan bought these ones, but i have yet to buy any. and since i have a closet full of heels, half of which i almost never wear, i thought instead of spending money on a new pair of shoes, i could take a pair i already own and make my own cap-toe heels. or at least try! why not???
here's what you'll need:
~ a pair of heels (or any shoes you want to do this with!)
~ a paint brush
~white acrylic paint
~ another color acrylic paint (this will be the color of the toe. i went with bright yellow, for spring!)
first, you will tape off a cap toe at the front of the heel. you can make it any size.
next, paint the toe with a coat of white paint and let it dry.
the white coat took about a half hour to dry. then i painted a couple of coats of the yellow paint.
before the paint dries completely, peel off the tape. if it dries completely first, it could crack and the line might not be straight. and that would be sad. then just let the paint dry.
then just throw these babies on with your favorite jeans and a tee or a cute little dress! i chose the former...
i am not sure how long these will last without a sealing coat of something (any suggestions?) over the toes. i will do this at some point. but for now, i am happy with how they turned out! and i have a new pair of shoes and spent no money! what do you think???
