Shoes, Shoes, Shoes

This black shoe was given to me by my niece (she was throwing the pair away as one was broken) so I said "Ooooooo I'm sure I could do something with this one" At the time I wasn't sure what I was going to do and it sat on my craft desk until the Eureka! moment.
I first gave it a coat of Gesso and then cut up some kitchen paper,stuck it on with Mod Podge and left it to dry overnight.
Using Eco-Friendly paint I gave the shoe two coats and left it to dry thoroughly.
I decorated around the shoe using some stunning ribbon I bought from Crafting Time and added a 'designer label inside where I wrote my greeting.
This was a quick project to do and the recipent was very pleased indeed.


  1. How cool is that! I'm sure the recipient loved it.

  2. What a neat idea and you used a discard so its recycled art, too.
    Love it, I'd never think of that but now that you've shown me, who knows?
