When it comes to footwear, the options are limitless and there is something for every occasion. However, we all need a comfortable pair of sneakers to pamper our feet in. The great thing about them though is that they can be your canvas to modify and personalize to your heart's content. Here's a short list of some cool and original ideas to turn drab into dramatic with just a little time and effort. Just click on the link below each photo for complete instructions.
#1. Lovely lace.
Paint fabric glue to the top of a clean shoe; apply the lace over it, cutting the excess material. Let it dry.
#2. Bring on the bling.
Stuff your shoes with paper. Purchase jewel stones in varying sizes and start glueing them from the toes and out. If there are any gaps, just apply the smaller stones in. Let it dry and enjoy.
#3. Midas touch.
You’ll need gold acrylic paint, gold liquid gilding, Mod Podge, and a brush. Apply a coat of acrylic gold and allow shoes to fully dry. Next, paint a coat of liquid gilding and then apply a coat of Mod Podge to protect from tarnishing.
Be sure to do this outside or in a space that’s well ventilated.
#4. Pattern time.
Create your own designs. Paint markers can be found at your local crafts store. Make sure you draw out your sketch in advance prior to coloring it on the actual shoes.
#5. Go wild.
Find a base paint such as a light beige to paint for the background. Paint the borders in black and let it dry. Randomly add spots all over the shoes in brown, add black to go around them.
