Today we are going to show you a way to fix your plain pair of flats! Just add a little spray paint, a bow and some jewels and you've got a special pair of shoes!
You will need:
A small amount of Vinyl
Quick Drying Craft Glue
Spray Paint (We used Silver)
Tape off the top of your flats with painter's tape. For extra protection on the rest of your shoes, cover with some paper.
Let the paint dry as stated on the bottle's directions and pull the painter's tape off. If the line isn't completely perfect, don't worry too much, we will be covering a lot of it up with the bow.
Cut 4 strips of Vinyl and Spray Paint them them same color as the tip of your shoes.
2 strips: 8 inches by 1.5 inches
2 strips: .75 inches by about 5 inches
Turn one of the thicker pieces facing downward.
Pull the edges together to form the bow shape.
Secure the edges with a piece of scotch tape.
On the inside of the vinyl, dab quite a bit of craft glue.
Push the taped edges down to the other side of the vinyl.
Put a line of glue on the bow shape and on the back of one of the thinner pieces of vinyl.
Wrap the thinner piece of vinyl around the middle and cut to the right size.
The front of the bow should then look a little something like this.
On the shoe put a large amount of glue where the bow will be placed.
Place the bow right in the center of the tip of the shoe.
I lined the edge of the bow up to the edge of the inside of the shoe.
Place three clothespins on the shoe like in the picture. This is to keep the bow in place while drying.
After the glue has dried, take off the middle clothespin and place three dots of glue in the center of the thin piece of vinyl.
Place three craft jewels on the dots and let dry!
When it's all done your shoes should look something like this! (Maybe in different colors)
