bedazzle your vans.

has inspired me ONCE again.

i've been wanting to get my hands on a pair of those fabulous miu miu sneakers, but my broke college self can't afford that right now! LOL. honestly...wtf came up with a brilliant idea to DIY (do it yourself)! these ladies, erica and lauren, took a simple pair of van's canvas sneakers, some gold glitter, rhinestones and mod podge and created their own version of the miu miu's. can you say amazeballs!? obviously, this is on my to do list, hopefully starting this weekend!

p.s. the BEST thing about this idea is that you can be as creative as you want. for example, change the rhinestones to spikes, gold glitter to silver glitter, or even different color laces. do what ever your little heart desires! :)

below are instructions from honestly wtf's website.

things you need:
a pair of white canvas
8 ounces of Mod Podge
1.5 ounces of coarse gold glitter
1 small and 1 medium flat brush
assorted rhinestones in settings
heavy duty adhesive
small plastic tray

1. Start by taping the edges of the shoes, covering the rubber soles. Cover both toes with tape as this is where the rhinestones will be glued on later.
2. Add one part course glitter to two parts Mod Podge into a small plastic cup or tray.
3. Stir the mixture thoroughly with a paintbrush. The consistency should be rather thick but not pasty. Apply a layer of the glitter mixture to the shoe. Allow to dry for 10-15 minutes and add a second and third layer until hardly any white space is showing. Use an exacto knife or the edge of your fingernail to scrape off any glitter that might have dried onto the grommets or soles.
4. Remove the tape. Using adhesive, glue the rhinestones on the toe in any pattern.
5. Sport your new Miu Miu inspired glittery sneakers with or without laces and VIOLA, you have yourself a pair of look-a-like miu miu sneakers (the fabulous inexpensive ones of course)
