Step 1:  Using masking, or blue painters tape, tape off bottom and heel of shoe, or any area you don’t want glitter.

Step 2:  Pour a little bit of Mod Podge into a small container and mix in 1 scoop of glitter to make a paste.

Step 3:  Using sponge applicator, paint approximately 2″x2″ square area of shoe with Mod Podge.  Then scoop loose glitter over the Mod Podge and shake off.  Reapply glitter if necessary.  Repeat process over entire shoe to be “glitterized”.
