Here are some photos to help you to decorate pointeshoes. You can use nearly everything you can fit in a craftshop to decorate a pointeshoe. A wonderful time to buy stuff is christmas. All those ribbons and glitter!
I don´t want to go into detail how I made a single shoe, because I sell some shoes, so I don´t want to give out all my secrets.
But I´m sure my photos will help you to find lots of ideas for yourself.

Kathy, what a wonderful job you have done, not only with your decorated pointe shoes, but also with compiling this very delightful thread!

Thanks so much!

I love the blue snowflake one and the silver glitter one! Has anyone actually danced in your creations as part of a costume? I can see these working wonderfully for a production of Cinderella.

I am in absolute awe of your level of creativity! Also, I think you have maybe inspired a lot of people into thinking about how it is possible to finish a dance costume all the way down to the toes.

Thank you so much for this posting.

Thank you so much for this post! I think I might do one as a summer project! A question...how do you sew the sequins on?

This is so creative! Thank you very much Kathy! For the paint, could it be okay to have a fabric paint or is there a special product for satin textile?

Well, I used silk paint. I´m sure you can use other fabric paint, too.

If you think it´s sticky material, push the Mod button and say so. Then the Mods will make it a sticky if they also think it´s worth being one.

I use some old ones, used by dancers of the Staatsballett Berlin. But I also have lots of new ones I bought at Deutsche Oper Berlin (the dancers of Staatsballett Berlin don´t fit into those shoes, so they sold them to me).

Kathy, you're amazing! They're sooooo professional! The sequined ones are the absolute best... i'd die for those silver ones, and the orange are really lovely too.

WOW!
You did a wonderful job, Kathy! You are so creative. Thanks a lot though, now I can wait for my pointe shoes to die so I can decarate them! =P

This needs to be a sticky so that when we're done with our pointe shoes, we can come here to this thread to refresh our memories on all the wonderful ways to decorate pointe shoes!

Fabulous job.
