A year ago, wandering around the Internet, I saw shoes that I fell in love with at first sight. I decided at all costs to make myself the same. And today I present to your attention a master class on decorating wedding shoes (and not only wedding ones). Such work requires diligence and accuracy, but the result will justify all your efforts.
For decoration you will need:
- guipure or any lace;
- tulle hard;
- acrylic paint;
- acrylic contour;
- needle and thread;
- colorless universal glue;
- glue gun.
This is how the shoes looked initially.
Since I did not have the desired guipure and tulle color, I initially painted the white materials with ivory acrylic paints. Use a sponge or brush for this.
We apply a piece of fabric to the shoes and plan how the patterns will be located. You can use just tulle, and then in the process just glue the necessary lace patches, as you like. I used lace on the mesh for this purpose.
Next, we glue the mesh first from the outside of the shoes. I used a rubber-based all-purpose transparent glue for this, you can use a moment-crystal or any other all-purpose glue that will withstand moisture.
With small scissors, cut the material right at the junction with the sole, first on one side.
On the heel, glue and cut the fabric along the seam.
We make an incision in the middle of the material so that the fabric does not pull and you can glue it on the other side. We do not cut off the material, since we will need it for the further formation of the patterns.
We glue the fabric on the opposite side of the shoes and cut it off.
We make an incision on the front so that you can glue the fabric from the inside.
Stretch the mesh slightly so that it fits perfectly to the shape of the shoes.
We cut out patterns on the remaining fabric, you can repeat the shape of the lace, or you can come up with your own version.
To stiffen the lace, apply a water-based matte varnish and let it dry.
We process all sections with an acrylic contour
Glue the tulle rectangle about 40 × 20 cm on a thread, leaving the upper part slightly larger than the lower one.
We glue the tulle vertically on a hot gun.
We collect the same rectangle exactly in the middle and glue it on top, only we place it horizontally.
We form the lace edges of the tulle using scissors.
We decorate the slices with a contour.
At the end of the decor, glue a small amount of rhinestones.
If desired, you can use pearl half beads. But I decided to focus only on rhinestones. It will look like this.
Our shoes are ready!
