Glitter bomb

Someone once said “She who leaves a trail of glitter is never forgotten” and we have to agree. Totally transform an old pair of sneakers by strategically sticking glitter to the front or back.

Pretty patterns

If you’re handy with a paintbrush, then this the perfect challenge for you. Draw stars, stripes, zig-zags or whatever you like on your old pair of All Stars.
