Canvas Shoes Revamp


When you head to your closet, you may see several pairs of shoes that you will find boring and need some life. Sneakers and canvas shoes can be the best to decorate because of its plain cotton body that will be great for painting, stitching, and sketching to show your artistry. There are numerous ways on restyling your plain shoes. Color it, paint it, sketch it, doodle it, stitch it, glitter it, stud it, whatever you want! And here is one example of revamping a plain pair to make it more interesting:

WHAT YOU NEED:

1. Simple canvas shoes, 2. Fabric paint, 3. A paint brush 4. A thimble


Remove laces and dip the open part of a thimble into your paint and use it to stamp the surface of your shoe. Cover the fabric portion completely with circles. Use a paint brush to touch up any spots where the stamp impression isn't complete. This usually happens on the seams. 


Allow your shoes to dry completely before putting the laces in and enjoy your newly-styled shoes!
