Happy Monday my loves!
I hope everyone has had a fabulous weekend!
Mine was very productive. I got new items for my shop, began promoting the February 'Lover's Lane' Blog Hop that I will be hosting here (more info on the home page of the blog), and I got started on my Valentine's Day projects.
The first of which is a pair of V-Day inspired sneakers. I'm not sure how much I will actually wear these but I felt like it would be a fun and festive project to attempt so why not. The sneakers were only $3.50 from the clearance rack at Target so I figured even if I messed them up, I wouldn't be losing out on tons of money.
Here's what you will need:
*plain white sneakers (hurry and get yours from Target-mine still had tons left)
*various shades of pink/red acrylic paint
*small foam brush
That's it! You're ready to begin.
Step 1: Use the painter's tape to section off the portions that you want painted. I chose to do a semi-chevron type design.
Step 2: Begin painting with your choice of acrylic paint. Allow 1-2 hours for paint to dry.
Although I have about 5 colors shown at the beginning of my post, I only used 3 colors (red, pink rose, and a coral shade)
Step 3: After the paint has dried, remove the painter's tape. Use a cottonball soaked in rubbing alcohol to remove any excess paint that may be on the sides and/or soles of the shoe.
Step 4: Put the shoelaces back into the shoes and viola, here you have a brand new pair of shoes for Valentine's Day.
As I stated before, I'm not exactly sure how often I will wear these but the thought was fun.
What types of crafts are you creating for Valentine's Day?
I can't wait to hear from you.
Thanks a bunch for reading.
