Pimp Up Your Reebok: Upcycled & Refashioned

Pimp up you Reeboks!!

These stick on crystal jewels I picked up from the Pound shop are my new favourite crafty thing. I will be sticking them onto everything. For this recycle project all I used was half a pack (50p’s worth) some glitter, glue and modge podge…


These trainers were in the garage waiting to be put into the recycle box. Old, dirty but with still a good sole on them, I thought I would give them a makeover…


You will need…

  • Old trainers
  • Stick on crystals
  • Strong glue
  • Silver glitter
  • Red glitter
  • Modge podge
  • Old pot for modge podge and glitter.
  • Glue brush.

What to do…

  1. Glue a line around the outside of the area you want to cover, a little at a time as the glue dries fast (enough for a strip of crystals).
  2. Take a strip of crystals and place on the glue, moving to curves in the pattern.
  3. Repeat inwards, going round and round until you reach the middle.
  4. Pull off a few crystals for any little gaps left and stick in.
  5. Leave to dry.
  6. Mix a little modge podge and silver glitter for tops of shoes, brush the glitter glue over the tops.
  7. Leave to dry.
  8. Mix some modge podge and some red glitter.
  9. Paint the red glitter over heels, ( and anywhere else like back or tongue) wrap some tin foil over glue to keep it from drying.
  10. Repeat above around 3 or 4 times.
  11. Wash the shoe laces in a bit of bleach, for a new effect.
