DIY Footwear FaceliftPosted: April 1, 2012
Check out the vid here:
While I don’t have the balls to actually use acrylic paint on my leather goods (my lack of precision guarantees disaster), I did get inspired to bring a bit of pizazz to a pair of black oxford flats.
Here’s how I transformed my shoes from plain to insane for just 25 cents (with no permanent damage).
Nine West, Vintage America Collection, Oxfords in Black
Iron-on Clothing Patches (25 cents at Dressew).
Simply insert the clothing patches in between the tongue of the shoes and the laces and over the flap…
Et voila! You’re ready to hit the town in a fab new pair of fashionable flats! Feel free to experiment with colours, patterns and fabrics…
My sister Klaudija will be pretty proud that I finally made use of our craft purchases at Dressew months ago AND have one less pair of “plain black” shoes on my shelves!
