Being stylish down to your shoes

October 07, 2008|By KACEY KEITH / Pulse Correspondent

Here's a fun idea to add your own style to your shoes.

For this project you will need:

o Canvas shoes

o A few Sharpies or something else to customize with ( I used Sharpies, but you can just as easily use paint)

o Some paper towels or something to set your shoes on

 First, take your canvas shoes and set them on paper towels to keep your floor or table from getting messy.

Next, jot down on a piece of paper some ideas of what you would want to draw or paint on your shoes.

If you are feeling especially creative, just start drawing or painting whatever you like without planning it out.

On my shoes, I drew pictures on the front and wrote my name on the sides of the shoes.

After you draw or paint your shoes, let them sit for a few hours, or overnight if possible.


If you're using paint, you may want to let them sit for even longer, to make sure it dries and your shoes don't get messed up.

When your shoes are dry, you can wear them where you want for as long as you want, and you'll always have a personalized piece of you.
