Decorating the chicken coop for Halloween was on the agenda this weekend and I rocked it Wizard of Oz style! This project was fun, easy, inexpensive and the result- adorable! It killed me to deface a beautiful pair of Franco Sarto leather heels, but they were the only ones in the thrift store that fit the bill. MATERIALS low-heeled shoes ruby red spray paint clear acrylic gloss spray ruby red glitter newspaper painter’s tape steel wool (optional) 2, 1/3″ wooden dowels drill hammer black & white striped tights bubble wrap TECHNIQUE 1. Scuff up leather with steel wool. Stuff shoes with newspaper, tape off inside of shoe with painters’ tape.
2. Spray shoe with red paint and immediately sprinkle with glitter. Allow to dry. 3. Seal with acrylic spray. Dry completely.
4. Drill 1/2″ holes in the back of the shoes & insert dowel in shoe. 5. Tap dowels into ground. 6. Fill bottom portion of tights with bubble wrap, tie off tights at waist & insert tights into shoes. Tuck waist end underneath house.
