We generally tend to throw old pair of shoes and sneakers, but there are so many ways how we can work on them and make them look totally different. Here are few ideas…..
Fun with glitter– If you want to add a bit of glamour to your old sneakers then use a lot of bling like glitter. Paint the area with glue which you want to do and just throw a lot of glitter on it. Let it dry completely before using them. Your party sneakers are ready, you can also use the glitter in different colors like red, green, blue etc or you can also go in for an ombre effect but that needs a bit of perfection.
Use motifs or lace– Cutwork lace or motifs are easily available in any lace shop, just pick the best for you and stick them to your sneakers. Use silver or rainbow stones if you want to add a little bit of shine to them. The shoe laces can also be replaced with a ribbon in tissue or satin.
Paint them– If you are aware of the splattering technique then you know how to achieve this texture, a flat paint brush and lots of colors is all what you need to do this.
Metallic Studs– They are available in different shapes, sizes and colors and are great for ornamentation purposes. Just stick them next to each other and the old pair will get a new life for sure.
Dip dye– This is the easiest way to color and to revive your sneakers. Just dip the front in the dye for few minutes and the dye will eventually spread on its own. Remember to dip your sneakers in a solution of baking soda and water for few minutes before starting the dyeing process.
Lace effect– Old laces or leftovers of the lace fabrics can also be used to bring in a new life to this footwear.
Embroidery- Embroidery can make anything look better, some creative knots and your old pair of sneakers will look all new.
Permanent markers and sketch pens– Don’t forget these useful tools when you want to paint something instantly. Use colorful sketch pens and markers to paint the sneakers.
