If you read my DIY Miu Miu collar post, I hinted at making a few Miu Miu inspired pieces. These shoes have been in the works for about two weeks.
I was going for the look of these, without the crystal bird. I found a pair of t-strap mary janes at the thrift store, a half-size too small (so Cher will be inheriting my DIY results).
You will need:
-1 pair of maryjanes- look for rounded toes, thick heels, and a platform.
-Light pink and black paint (for ones like mine), gold and black paint or dark blue and white paint for others.
-Drawings or stencils of swallows, cats or ladies (whatever you’d like to use)
These are the shoes I used. I cleaned them off, getting them ready to paint. I was able to do a few coats everyday.
I painted the whole shoe, including the soles. It took about four days total to get the entire shoe covered. Once the pink was dry I went to work on the birds.
I didn’t put on as many birds as used in the Miu Miu shoes, mostly because I didn’t want them to look the exact same, and I thought they looked good with fewer.
