DIY Shoe Decorating For Kids
I dare you to find any child that wouldn’t love to be handed a pair of white shoes and be given the space to decorate them themselves!!
This DIY shoe decorating craft by Stephanie is SO cool – using fabric paint in spray bottles really creates a fab edgy graffiti look.
Here’s what you need to gather together for this activity
fabric paint in spray bottles
white fabric shoes
decorations such as sequins
If you don’t want to go to the trouble to putting fabric paint in spray bottles you could just as easily use fabric pens or fabric crayons.
Create your design on the shoes with the sticker shapes. These ‘masked’ areas will show through as white when the paint is dry and you peel off the stickers.
Cover the floor (or ground if working outside) with a plastic sheet or old tablecloth. Hand your little one the bottles of spray paint and let them off……. when they are all done leave the shoes aside to dry.
TIP: Stuff the inside of the shoes with newspaper or kitchen towel so the paint spray is confined to the outside surface of the shoes only.
Add any additional embelishments such as sequins and glitter, using fabric glue!
and voila!! your kid will be sporting some pretty unique and funky shoes, ever proud with each step they take as they made them themselves xx
Time to get your crafty pants on!! or shoes in this case :)
