I’m working with Savers on some fun DIY-inspired posts! Two weeks ago I made a Painted Floral Purse, this time around I’ve made these Magical Milagro Shoes! This is an idea Maya gave me, she wanted a pair of everyday heels spruced up with silver milagros. I came across these Christian Louboutin milagro-trimmed shoes and got inspired…

Even though these shoes are gorgeous, Maya wanted something way more practical and comfortable. Did I mention she wears size 11 shoes (she’s tall!)? I figured it would be a challenge to find the perfect black heels in that size, but I gave it a try!
What is cool about Savers is that it is a thrift store that has the selection and layout of a department store where you can find a mix of vintage pieces and brand names all for great prices.

And hopefully for me – size 11 black heels!

Took a detour to the home décor section on my way to the shoe department…I came across these two Day of the Dead ceramic skulls for $5.99 each! Score!

OK, onward to the shoe department! Honestly, I was so overwhelmed at the shoe section I spaced out taking a picture! They not only had size 11 shoes, but an entire section for size 10 and up.

Here’s what I found! Size 11 closed toe wedges, black! Brand new and very clean. Maya actually likes them better than traditional heels because she says they are more comfy.

Supplies:

Milagros (I buy mine online)

Permanent adhesive

Chopstick or toothpick to apply the glue

Before you do anything, look at your shoes and where you want to place the milagros. That’s the hardest part, getting down the design!

Squeeze some glue into a small bowl or piece of foil and use a chopstick or toothpick to pick up a drop and place a milagro on the shoe. Again – make sure you know your design first because you don’t want to leave a glue smear!

After I glued all of the milagros, I felt like I either needed more milagros (which I didn’t have) or something for filler. I used Beads in a Bottle paint to fill in the open areas and I filled in the back part of the shoes as well!
