I have made a shoes out of masking tape! I thought it would be awesome to make a shoe out of a unusual item so i used masking tape!!
Step 1: Materials
~ a small peice of styrofoam ( big enough to fit your foot)
~ a roll of masking tape
~ a x-acto knife
~ a pencil
~ a box to cut the styrofoam in
~ another shoe to use as a guide
~ markers to decorate
Step 2: Cut the Base
First you'll need to cut a base. The base will start your shoe.
i sugest putting the styrofoam in the box while you cut so that all the mess is left in the box and not on your floor. Styrofoam is messy, but not hard to clean up so it is up to you if you would like to use a box.
Lay your styrofoam peice inside of the box. Lay your normal shoe on top of the styrofoam. i used a pencil to trace the shoe shape onto the styrofoam, but a pen or sharpie may work better. After you have traced the shape onto the styrofaom use your x-acto knife to cut out the shape.
Step 3: Wrap Base in Tape
Take your newly cut peice of styrofoam now shaped like a foot and start to wrap it in masking tape. Make sure you wrap every peice in tape. i wrapped mine several times to make sure it was wrapped all over. Try to keep the tape as flat as you can, this is the bottom of the shoe and you will see it in the final product.
Step 4: Build Up Sides
Step 5: The Front of the Shoe
when you build up the sides the front will look just like the rest of the sides, but the front of the shoe is rounded. to round the toe place tape sideways bending down the tape that was already there. doing this several times will insure a rounded toe.
Step 6: More Sides
but i have pictures of mine to show you.
Step 7: Tounge
you may also use your x-acto knife to poke holes in the side were a shoelace would go.
