(Yes this is an old tutorial of mine.)This is not one of those "spray paint your shoes" tutorials. No, this is something for the artist-at-heart on your gift-giving list. It involves some imagination (you come up with your designs), but it is SO MUCH FUN to do! For Gift-Giving I would either buy some inexpensive shoes, or some cool vintage heels from the thrift. I really want some painted dress shoes...
Here is the super easy tutorial:
*an old pair of leather shoes
*acrylic paint (the art kind, not the craft kind)
*pen (if you are scared to freehand)
1. decide what colors you want to paint the shoes, and what designs.
2. If needed, use a ballpoint pen to LIGHTLY draw out your designs
3. Paint directly on the shoe!!
4. Let dry for a few hours before wearing.
I painted these 3 years ago and they have still held up! hooray!
