Color blocked shoes 1Today we want to show you how to make some super cute color blocked booties. Emma and I had some short boots, but we wanted to add something to make them more interesting. We painted these in an afternoon. Mine are brown with black and hers are black with gold...

Color block shoes stepsHere's what we did... 1. Find a pair of boots that you like. 2. Mark the area you want to paint. You can use matte fabric paint or screen printing ink. I also love Matha Stewart's multi surface craft paint, that's what we used for the gold pair. 3. Paint your shoes. Ours took three coats. 4. Let them dry completely and then wear them out. You can be proud that you gave your pair so much more personality!
