Today we are going to yank out a pair of ugly shoes from your closet and give them a new look. Ready? Here we go!
My mom got me these shoes a while back, but I never had anything to go with them. (Sorry Mom!) I decided to take matters into my own hands. I love flats and I wanted something a little more funky.
1) Stuff your shoes with papers so the inside doesn't get painted. I also taped off the base area around the edges, so that would stay the normal color. See the scotch tape below?
2) Pick a fun color of spray paint and go crazy. I was surprised that these shoes took a lot of coats. I think it's because they have a lot of texture.
3) Find some embellishments. I used this crochet trim from Wal-mart, a thin grograin ribbon, and two large buttons. I weaved the ribbon into the trim.
4) Hot glue it all on. I liked the way the buttons looked off-centered.
That's it. It was a pretty quick project and I love finding a way to use things I already have. Thanks for stopping by! If you haven't entered the play sword giveaway, you should check it out! Have a great day!
