DIY Galaxy Converse

As promised, here is the finished product of my sisters converse! I really want to keep them, they turned out much better than the earlier version as the shoe is canvas and gives off a nicer finish. Might have to invest in doing some of these for myself! After a lot of thought I decided on the white laces.




 Note: You might be able to tell that the rubber sole came out much cleaner, whiter and looking almost brand new! How I did this? Toothpaste and an old brush or scrubber. WIN

Want - Floral Fairylights

Just a quick little post;

My friend and I bought some cheap fairy lights for new years decorations, and now they are sitting at home in my wardrobe. I tried to think of some cool things I could do with them to decorate my room, how amazing are these floral lights?!

DIY Galaxy Shoes

DIY Galaxy Print Shoes

Plain shoes/old shoes
Acrylic paint (assorted colours)
Paint brushes
Masking Tape
Scotchguard / water-proofer

Gather materials

NOTE: tape the base of the shoe with masking tape if possible, you can use black paint at a later stage if the tape wont stick

Paint in sections, using a 'dab' action, or sponge to spread
Begin with base colour (blue) then add purple and white to finish
Be as messy as you want :)

Add stars using a thin paint brush or toothpick
Add smaller stars (dots) with toothpick, scattered around darker areas of the shoe
'Splatter' with watered down paint and a brush or by using a spray bottle
Add glitter with glue
Use a water-proof spray (scotchguard)


Also revamping my sisters old chucks with this same technique, will post photos when finished!
