You all know that I am a shoe addict – I hardly hide it! This is why I thought I would share this fun idea for a bit of a crafty project with you, because it is a whole lot of shoe related goodness!
The project is to customise yourself a pair of shoes. The example for a shoe that everyone uses is a plain white sneaker (you know, the kind you can buy in Primark for pennies), but I think you could do the same to a simple canvas heel – it just needs to have some texture for the sealer to grip to. You should be able to find a sealer in somewhere like Hobbycraft, or you can always try some simple PVA glue.
To customise some shoes:
- Collect together appropriate images – you could use photos from magazines, text clippings, or even comics
- Brush the area of the shoe you want to cover with sealer, then apply the photo/text/image.
- Add another layer over the image, and either leave to dry or carry on adding further images (with a layer of sealer above and below).
- Once covered, add multiple layers of sealer, letting each one dry in-between
Voila! Personalised shoes! I can just see some geekish but fun shoes covered in images of buttons and pretty crafty goodness!
