DIY – Doodle shoes

diy doodle shoes after

Some time ago I bought these white sneakers. They were really cheap and I thought I could do something cool with it. I didn’t had an idea for them at that moment but I just knew they were going to be fabulous! When I was going true some stuff of mine I found a new textile marker and the idea was born: DIY doodle shoes! Why not? It’s fun, it’s cheap and it’s easy!

Learn how to make these fabulous DIY doodle shoes after the jump. . .

How to make DIY doodle shoes

The instructions are really simple: just doodle! If you are not sure about your doodles you can practice on paper first before you draw on your shoes. My textile marker was just enough for two shoes, so if you have higher shoes then mine you may need an extra textile marker. I also replaced the white shoe laces with some black ones.

Tip: use colored markers for a more colorful result!

    I did something like this with sharpies and basic lines, but they were nowhere near this cool. I wish I could show you a pictures of them. I am going to have to try these.

    Hmm it looks like your blog ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I’m thoroughly
    enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to everything. Do you have any tips for first-time blog writers? I’d
    definitely appreciate it.

    I think everything said made a lot of sense. However, what about
    this? suppose you were to write a killer title? I am not saying
    your information isn’t good, however what if you added something to maybe grab folk’s attention?

    I mean DIY – Doodle shoes | By Wilma is a little
    vanilla. You should look at Yahoo’s home page and note how they write news titles to get people to open the links. You might add a video or a picture or two to get people excited about what you’ve got
    to say. Just my opinion, it could make your posts a little livelier.

    Howdy, i read your blog occasionally and
    i own a similar one and i was just curious if you get a lot of spam comments?
    If so how do you protect against it, any plugin or anything you can advise?

    I get so much lately it’s driving me mad so any help is very much appreciated.
