Weekend Craft: Dorothy's Ruby Slippers

Dorothys-Ruby-Slippers There is no place like home… who doesn’t want Dorothy’s Ruby Slippers from The Wizard of Oz.  This is a great weekend craft, fairly simple to do and easily moddable.  Based on your preference all you would have to do is get different color sequins and different footwear and presto Emerald Loafers for the guys.

What you will need:


  • Old shoes

  • stringed red sequins preferably metallic : about 10 meters each shoe

  • bugle beads : 1 packets fine

  • red glitter glue

  • little diamond things with the sewing backs : around 35 to 40 each bow

  • red material : only need scrap material

  • cardboard or thick paper

  • needle and thread

  • two red stones


There are four easy steps to follow with pictures included for each steps.  Read the full instructions here (via Instructables) .
