Decoupage shoes



Hope your all enjoying the weekend, I’ve just finished decorating a pair of shoes…..

I had this pair of gold shoes and they are so comfortable but they were starting to look tatty….

I started by giving them a light rub down with fine sandpaper, then chose some rice paper to cover them with, this is my first go using rice paper, I quite liked it as it’s a bit stronger than paper napkins.

I cut the rice paper into small squares then into triangles, then using modge pod I glue the pieces onto the shoe…

I wasn’t sure whether to cover the frill, but then decided I would, this was a bit tricky as it’s all fabric and I had to do it in stages.

I covered the whole shoe with a varnish, but before I wear them out I think I will look into coating them with an outdoor sealer.
