DIY Painted Shoes

Painted Kids Shoes tutorial - such a simple and great money-saving idea!

Hello, Lil’Luna readers! My name is Angelina and you can find me blogging over at, JoJo & Eloise.

I am so excited to be here today! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, Kristyn as I am sure many of you do as well and I can’t Congratulate her and her family enough on their newest Blessing! Baby Wesley, who is just the about the Cutest thing ever.


So with all that said,how about we get started with this fun DIY project!

I will be sharing a very simple, easy and quick tutorial on how too bring new life to an Old pair of shoes.

I know it’s not the prettiest of tutorials but I promise it will be one that is well worth it, not too mention money saving also and I know we all LOVE to save money.

My daughter had these sparkly, Once Shiny and White shoes that she has practically worn the life out of.

If you follow my blog you probably already know, that I do a lot of picture taking. Most often the pictures are of Sewing Projects, which sometimes require FOOT shots!

Which can easily add up to me needing a wide variety of shoes (for my kids). I must admit I LOVE shoes like any other person, but have the hardest time spending LOTS of money on Kids shoes, when they are just going to grow out of them just about as quick as you can Blink!!

So, even though these worn out shoes have seen better days, they still have some hope left for a new life.

Here’s what I did:

I used a damped cloth to get all the loose dust and dirt off the main body of the shoe. I choose some basic Acrylic Paint by Martha Stewart. I was needing RED shoes, but feel free to use any color needed! (I have a feeling these shoes will one day be another color). {*Wink*}

Once my surface was clean and dry, I painted the entire shoe with a generous coat of paint and allowed them to fully dry.

Once they were fully dry, they were busy at work.

We have already gotten lots of wear out of them.

I used them in an upcoming Sewing Project pictured below.

We also used them for the Zig Zag blog tour I just recently did.

As well as in this DIY Stencil Shirt tutorial.

These shoes still have a couple more projects left in the RED, but I have a feeling they will be a new color here, VERY soon.

So what do you think?

Not too bad for a worn out, old pair shoes!

I hope you will take a look at what shoes you have lying around the house, that look as though they have seen better days and get some paint out and give them a Brand New Meaning to life.

A BIG thank you to Kristyn for allowing me too come over and visit with you, I would LOVE for you to stop by JoJo & Eloise and say Hello!

Hope too See you soon!
