DIY Heel Fix

We have seen the scuffed shoe toe fix done many ways but I recently needed a quick shoe heel fix so here is what my solution was.

I took a pair of Calvin Klein basic black leather pumps (I just cant get rid of) that had dog chew marks and scuffs down the heel and did a glitter camouflage. 
Step 1. Cover the heal in a basic color undercoat. This will help you get a better coat when the glitter is applied, plus it filled in the dog teeth marks. Note: I used Martha Stewart's paints which where inexpensive and came in a hundred colors. I used the color sandstone for both the satin and glitter paint.
 Step 2. Apply the glitter pain over the satin coat. Wait 5 minutes in between glitter coats. It will take about an hour for everything to completely dry and took 8-10 glitter coats to get the results I was looking for so be patient!


  1. I love this....sooo cute & perfect!!

  2. I think I am going to use this for atleast 6 pairs of shoes! Thanks

  3. have you worn them yet?? does the glitter wear off easily? I hope not cuz this looks so great!!

    1. Hello,

      I wore them out for a night on the town and they held up great! The glitter paint I used did a great job curing to the heel and I have about 300 coats of paint (more like 15...haha) on the heel, so I should be ok!

    2. fabulous. I once applied red glitter to a pair of pumps. We took our grandsons to see the Wizard of Oz - I changed out of my everyday shoes in the dark theatre. At the exact moment Dorothy got the red shoes I put my feet up. Our 5 year old grandson was amazed & looked at his own feet to see if his shoes had changed aaaaw - I will never forget it



  5. These types of represents show in kind of questions
    should you ask? You are getting something that you
    can now review each application thoroughly.
    This could include: painting, carpentry, roofing, dry wall, cabinetry, or painting.
