Hi! Today, I would like to show you how to “reform” a pair of white shoes into a more cute and one-of-a-kind.
I bought the white shoes for about $10. They are typical shoes that students wear at school and they are common in every school in Korea. You can get them any stationary store and most of them have all the sizes available. Please make sure that you are using a permanent marker and not a normal marker. You do not want your drawings on the shoes to get erased.
1. Draw your design on the shoes with a pencil. I would recommend starting with a pencil, because you can erase any mistakes. Also, please draw your designs lightly, so they can be erased after you outline them. I drew a skull with a hat.
2. With a sharpie or a permanent marker, outline your design carefully. I used a thin sharpie for outlining. I would recommend using the thin sharpie, because it is easier to control them. Also, the lines don’t get thick.
3. Color your designs with the permanent markers and you are done!
I drew my design simple, because I didn’t want this project to get too complicated. Although my design used couple of colors, I’m happy with the outcome. You can draw more complicated designs and you can even add some ribbons or buttons on the shoes! Also, you do not need to use permanent markers to color the shoes. You can use acrylic paint or anything that does not get erased easily. I will post pictures for ideas about reforming shoes. I hope you enjoyed reading about my simple steps of how to reform shoes!
