A great way to reuse old sneakers and make them fabulous!
Since I was dorothy this year for halloween, I wanted to pull the look together with some "ruby red slippers". All I could find was really high heels that were sparkly and pricy. I was not about to throw away money if I could make them myself. So I decided why not do my own rendition of Dorothy's Ruby Red slippers by using my old pair of converse! I loved the outcome and I want to share my success with you!
