I know that many of you out there enjoy owning vintage ballet slippers. This post might give you ideas for what you can do to spice yours up a bit.
This weekend I was invited to help with a fundraiser for a dance school in our area. One of the ballet moms had a brilliant idea to paint pointe shoes and sell them at the school's next performance.
The students gathered together after rehearsal and their imaginations took flight. We had a black swan shoe, shoes with the sun, moon and stars. Shoes painted like candy and one that Marie Antoinette herself would have worn. It was marvelous fun and even the teachers got into the act. Below is a favorite shoe created by one of the students.
Beautiful Ballet Creations
