DIY Shoes: Peppermint Flats

I can't resist painting on shoes - especially when I find awesome blank canvases on clearance at the store. I came across a pair of boring black flats for under $5. I could buy them and leave them black suede and go on with normal life OR have my way with them. Which do you think I chose?

Here are the shoes! All you need to make this is red and white Tulip Soft Fabric Paint, a brush and a steady hand. NOTE: Be sure to tape off the heel and side areas. 

What I love about the Soft Paint is that it gives thick, even coverage and will cover a surface as dense as black suede! I first painted the shoes with a white base coat, then two layers of red.

Next I looked at a picture of candy canes and peppermints to get the stripe pattern. Then I just started painting. If you want super perfect lines, you can draw the lines with a ruler, and use tape for a guide. I just went for it though!

You may have to go over the white a few times to make them super bright. 

Here is the finished look.  I added black paint around the edges to give them polished look. They are soooo cute, I love them because they look great with jeans and fit so well with the season!

Thanks for checking out my project!
