Color Design Shoe Tutorial

For my newest post on Crafts, Tips, and DIY, I will be showing a tutorial on how to make these colorful, eye-popping shoes below in only three easy steps!


You will need:

  1. Neon orange, green, pink, red and blue fabric paint
  2. Flat Shoes (I got mine at CVS for 6.99)
  3. Stick on gems ( I got mine in the sticker/scrapbook section in Michael’s)
  4. Paintbrushes


Here are some of the designs I used, but feel free to search for your own.

I followed these as closely as possible, but drew them on free-hand. I also made some other swirly-ish designs so feel free to get creative!

Alright, Step One: Draw on designs with a pencil all over both shoes. Make sure you draw them all on before you begin, it gets tricky trying to pencil on designs while there is wet paint.

Step Two: Paint each designs carefully with a very fine brush. The finer the better was my experience.

Step Three: Hot Glue gems onto shoes.

Now, let’s see a little ‘before and after’, shall we?


Thanks for checking this out! I hope you’re able to make some of these with your own little flair! Let me know if you have any ideas or suggestions or anything you’d like me to try!

Be calm. Be patient. Be happy.
