Step 1:  Prepare your work area. Lay down newspaper or wax paper. This will help protect your work area from glitter.  In addition, place grocery bags inside the shoes to prevent glitter from getting inside.
 
Step 2:  Prepare your glue. You will need about 2 ounces of glue.  However, this can vary depending on the size and type of shoes you are scenting.  So, in your small bowl, mix 2 ounces of glue to 2-4 ml of fragrance oil and stir thoroughly.
 
Step 3:  Using your foam brush spread a thin layer of scented glue on a small section of the shoe. Then, sprinkle the glitter over this area.  I have found that fine glitter or holographic glitter works best on shoes.  The chunkier glitter just doesn’t hold to the shoe as well.
 
Step 4:  Now, hold the shoe over your wax paper and shake off the loose glitter.
 
Step 5:  Repeat this process, adding glue and glitter to small sections of the shoe until you have covered your shoe entirely with glitter.
 
Step 6:  Then, add glitter to your other shoe.
 
Step 7:  Allow the pair of shoes to dry overnight. Then, touch up any spots that need more glitter.  Once again, allow them to dry.
 
Step 8:  Next, prepare your hairspray. You will need to mix 2 ounces of hairspray to 1 ml of fragrance oil in your 2 ounce bullet bottle. Attach a 20/410 fine mist sprayer.
 
Step 9:  Finally, allow the hairspray to dry.  Once dry, remove the bags from inside the shoes and use your ribbon as laces for the shoes. Then, they are ready to wear!
