Introduction: Shoes With Decoupage

About: I have been sewing and crafting for several years, my children are grown so now I have lots of time to be creative. I enjoy photography, cooking, cake decorating, painting and sharing my projects with others.

I thought these sandals needed a little more color so I found a comic book and got out my decoupage glue!

Step 1: Supplies

To make these you will need:

Pair of shoes with cork platforms

Mod Podge glue

Comic book

Scissors

Step 2: Cut Up Comic Book

Tear out a couple of pages and trim off the white border. Cut each page into 8 or 10 squares.

Step 3: Glue Paper to Shoe

Cut small sections of comic, dab a bit of glue onto the cork platform near the bottom and spread a thin layer with finger or Q-tip. Place paper onto the glue and press down smoothly, getting rid of any air bubbles. Smear a thin layer of glue on top of the paper. Repeat around entire shoe, trimming paper around edges as you go.

Step 4: Finished Sandals

You can cover the top of the shoe with a towel and spray lightly with hairspray to seal the decoupage. They didn't take very long to make, maybe an hour per shoe.I am pleased with the way these turned out! I'm going to keep an eye out for another pair...
