Savin' Maven Monday: DIY Polka Dot Sneakers...

I IMMEDIATELY fell in love with these shoes when I saw Eboni from

The Fashionista Next Door

style them here....

Keds $45

Thrifty and Shamlessly speaking, I really didn't wanna pay that much for them so I was super excited when I saw these blue Mossimo sneakers on clearance for $3.88.

This is another one of those easy peasy DIY projects that takes no more than 5 minutes to create. 

Here's what you will need:

~Mossimo Canvas Sneakers ($3.88 from Target)
~Craft Paint
~These round stick thingies that came with my DIY Picture Frames.

That's it. You're ready to begin.

Before I even started I balled up 2 large pieces of newspaper and stuffed one in each shoe. This provided be  with more of a smooth surface.

STEP 1: Take one of the round stick thingies and dip it in the acrylic paint...

Make sure the tip is fully covered...

STEP 2: Begin dotting. Again there no rhyme nor reason as to how I placed the dots on the shoe. This is how the shoe looked after I dotted half of the toe.

STEP 3:  Dot some more and viola...

I thought of doing more of the tan color on the seams but the white is speaking to me.

So I left them like this!!

I can't wait to wear them...

Stay tuned for styling posts to come.
