This has to be one of my favorites so far!!! I think I may be obsessed with these shoes!!
Are you nervous? Don’t be, these will become your next obsession too!! So fun and so cute.
- Canvas Shoes (bought mine from Walmart for $5.97)
- Mod Podge
- Napkins of your choosing (I did chickens of course)
- Some sort of brush to spread your Mod Podge
- Sanding Sponge (Got mine from the Dollar Tree)
- Iron (haha)
So, the first thing that you are going to do is spread your Mod Podge around on the section of the shoe that you are working on. I did mine in three different sections. See the above picture 🙂
The next thing that you will do, is pull the napkins apart. Most napkins are 2ply. Pull the pieces apart and keep the napkin with the design on it of course. See above pics for reference.
Once you have separated the napkins, lay it on the area you have put the Mod Podge. You are committed once you have done this. There is no moving the napkin around once you have laid it down. Do not stress about the ripples/bubbles you will have in it. We will take care of that later. Let this section completely dry before attempting anything else to it. You will continue this process all around the shoe. See above pictures as a guide.
Once your sections are all dry to the touch, this is where the sanding sponge comes in. I know, its weird, but it works for me haha. I will use this to go around all the edges and remove the excess napkin. This way I get a nice clean removal and lines for the most part.
Time to iron over you areas and continuing to use the sanding sponge to clean up your edges. The iron will smooth out a lot of the bubbles that you had. I just use this cute little iron I got from Walmart.
Continue to use the iron and the sanding sponge till you are happy with your result. It will not be perfect, just like real life 🙂 I like the rustic look personally. Then you are just about finished. Go outside and spray your shoes with some sealer. Once they are dry, have fun wearing them!!! See the above pictures 🙂
I sure hope you guys have enjoyed this craft as much as I have! I can not wait to see what you all do with your projects!
