This one is for the upcycler! Nothing feels better than when you can take something old and turn it into something new! Recently I have seen this spotted pattern everywhere- from summer fashion to stylish home decor! After seeing a pair of shoes similar to these in a boutique with an expensive price tag, the thought came to mind, “these would be easy to make!” So I passed up the purchase to give DIY-ing a try. I had these shoes sitting in the back of my closet and I doubt they would have made it past my next clothing purge. However, now I love them! They are stylish and modern, and will look great with a pair of culottes! I am really happy with how these DIY painted shoes turned out!
In this project, I will show you how to transform a pair of boring shoes by adding a sophisticated pattern to them! The requirements for this is literally 20 minutes, white acrylic paint, paint brush, and a pair of shoes that need a makeover! I’m really excited to share this project, let’s get to making these DIY painted shoes!
Supplies for DIY painted shoes
White acrylic paint
Step one: Make sure to clean shoes.
Step two: Dip the paintbrush in the paint. Whip off any excess paint on a paper towel.
Step three: With a dapping motion begin painting “spots” to the shoe surface. Change the direction you are painting to create a pattern effect. Allow time to dry.
