Introduction: Newspaper Shoes
Here's a fun way to revamp a plain pair of old shoes!
Step 1: Materials
You will need:
-A pair of shoes that you're willing to cover (I used a pair that I found at a garage sale)
-newpapers (or magazines)
-hot glue gun
Step 2: Create the Folds
Cut out a chunk of newpaper. The size doesn't need to be a specific length, just as long as it's big enough to cover one side of the shoe. Fold each strip accordian-style; as if you're making a paper fan.
Step 3: Attach the Folds
Glue the strips of paper onto the shoes with a hot glue gun. This step involves some improvising. Your technique for attaching the paper might give you a different result than mine, but that's what makes each pair of shoes unique! The most important thing is that your paper is attached neatly and tightly, completely covering the shoe. I also used ModPodge on top of the paper to add extra shine. You can also use a sealer for more protection. My word of advice is to never wear these shoes on wet days!
Step 4: Flower Addition
I created the flowers by combining groups of 3 petals. This is another step that you can make your own. I recommend using layers of petals to give your flowers more depth.
Step 5: Presto! New Shoes!
