How To Make DIY Galaxy Glitter Boots

Forget galaxy nails and galaxy hair! You can make your own DIY galaxy glitter boots in just three easy steps for some low-commitment outer space inspired style! Unlike the tricky hair trend, this project is almost impossible to mess up. Simply mix your glitter, tape, and paint!

With just a few hardware store items and a whole lot of glitter, you'll be on your way to becoming a style trailblazer in your sparkly new shoes. I can't think of a better way to transform last season's boring old Chelsea boots than with a totally wild paint job. It doesn't get any simpler than this DIY project, either. Honestly, I don't think you can mess it up, even if you aren't exactly crafty. This is one project that's guaranteed to leave all of your Pinterest followers green with envy.

You start by taping off the parts of the shoe that you don't want glitter on — likely the sole of the shoe and the zipper part, but you do you. Next, blend together a few colors of glitter and combine with some Mod Podge to make a colorful paste. The color possibilities are endless, but you'll want to add at least a few for the full galaxy effect.

After that, just paint your shoe with the concoction, dry overnight, and you're good to go! As the wise Tom Petty once said, "the waiting is the hardest part" of this DIY experiment. Don't believe me? See for yourself.
