I’m from the south, and it seems all we do is monogram things! Never a bad thing, just an observation! This idea came to me while walking through Neiman Marcus Last Autumn in the men’s shoes where I saw not only monogrammed shoes but also embroidered animals too… they were super cute and so stylish I had to share!

So Here goes,

What you’ll need:

Paint (I used Acrylic paint in antique gold)

Make-up Sponge Or sponge paintbrush

Stencils (I used cursive-like ones)

Shoes

Chalk

 

1.Get your shoes ready to go, by stuffing the toes with tissue paper or paper towels.

2. Use the stencil and chalk to place where you actually want the pain to go.

3. Get the paint ready by using a paper plate. Then dab the paint with the sponge. Place the stencil where the chalk outline is and paint over it.

4. Then go one initial by one initial until it’s complete. then let dry.

5. and then if its real suede you may iron it, but you most definitely don’t have to! and then the only thing you get to do is find outfits to go with them! : )

 

Hope you have fun! -Ryn

P.s. DIY Fridays will be every other Friday from now on. On the Fridays that aren’t with have other fun things! Just an FYI for you! ; )
