- Star Stencil (more On This Below)
- Paint Brush
- Red Ribbon
- White Tennis Shoes
The first thing you need to do is create a stencil of some sort. I just cut stars out of some adhesive vinyl I had. You can also use contact paper. Get a star punch to use or use scissors, an exact-o knife or an electronic cutting tool. Cut out a bunch of stars. I used 8 per shoe.Stick the stars all over your white tennis shoes:
Make sure they are on nice and firmly. Then using your SoSoft Fabric Paint in blue, paint all over the shoes. I didn't worry about painting over the rivet-I just painted them blue too and the tongue. Paint anywhere that will show:
Let the shoe dry then peel off the stars.My paint had leaked just a little around the edges of the stars:
So I just used some white paint to touch them up a little.
Then I removed the shoe laces and threaded the red ribbon through. (I used about 1 yard per shoe but I had excess that I cut off on the ends.)
I tied the ends of the ribbon. You could also use fray check on them.Happy 4th of July!
