DIY: Paint Your Own Saddle Shoes

OP: Dream a Little Bigger


Look how cute these shoes are! Well, yes, they are cute but maybe not $75.00 cute...

Make your own for about $15-$20!

1. Gather your supplies

-black fabric paint
-black PUFFY fabric paint dotter
-white shoes (I got these from Target for $14.99)
-a cup of water (to clean your brushes)

2. Prep.

-Unlace the shoe, it makes life 1235834% easier.
-squirt some of your paint into a toss away cup or paper plate. If you don't have one available, you can just use the paint cap! 

3. Paint the border of your shoe.

Use a thin brush to paint the border of the shoe and in the crevices.

4. Fill in the rest of the white using a thicker brush.

Repeat on the back of the shoe.

NOTE: Make sure to have a reference image handy. I preferred the entire back of the heel to be black, but it may differ depending on which style you like.

5. Dots.

Using the PUFFY paint blotter place the dots on the border of your shoe to represent the dimples. Using the reference image will help you figure out how far apart you should place them, but again, it's all preference.


6. Wait for the shoe to dry and relace. Done!
