Materials
  • Old Shoes
  • Large Sacks of Googly Eyes (Michael's for like 4 bucks)
  • Hot Glue Gun
  • Lots of sticks of Hot Glue
Here's what you do:
  1. Take a Hot Glue Gun!
  2. Make sure it is on the highest heat setting ( previous tests with lower heats lead to googly eyes that fell off more)
  3. Put a small drop on the back of an eye, and glue it on the shoe
  4. Cover the whole shoe!
You will start learning the ins and outs of what makes a good bond after a while. The different surfaces of a tennis shoe also adhere differently.

You should plan on a touch up stage, as the main way to know where the flex zones are that things will just always pop off come from wearing them around a bit.
