DIY USA Patriotic Flag Shoes

DIY USA Patriotic Flag Shoes

"When I was a kid, we used to be able to buy the plain white canvas shoes from the dollar store for about two bucks a pair. It was how we got through the summer. They didn’t last a long time with all the running around we did, but mom just bought us a new set every few weeks, and we could wear them out with impunity. One of our favorite things to do was to decorate our new shoes in fun ways. We tried various painting techniques – from splattering them with neon colors to brushing on glow in the dark paints in fun patterns. But as I got a little older I took more time in making them stand out from the crowd. A favorite was to take a sharpie and write out various words and phrases in beautiful calligraphy. The shoes were lovely and really different. Sometimes I’d paint designs to make them look more expensive. There came a time when I started feeling a little ashamed at my cheap shoes and wanted to hide the fact they came from the dollar store."
