I open the cupboard door and get attacked by footwear and boxes, as they all fall on top of me, right thats it .... my revenge = Recycling! O_o
I have shoes i hardly wear, well shoes and sneakers that have never touched my feet to be honest :/ loooool!
I swear you'd think that i was an octopus in my past life, hold up monzie octopuses don't wear shoes?.. aaarrrrhh whatever!
So in the last year or so i decided that, instead of continuing to feed my terrible lust for continually buying footwear, I'd sell the footwear that i haven't worn for 6-12 months and with the money i made, i'd buy new or second hand items of clothing, accessories and or mainly footwear!
Bottom line ... 'Recycling'!!
I am a fan of textile recycling and second hand bits and bobs.... you no, others peoples unused clutter lmao, so the below converses are a pair of authentic £7.99p converses i won from ebay yay and of course I had to take advantage of the fact that i won them for really cheap and customized them.
I had fun I'm always in my element when i D.I.Y, its one of the best forms of self-expression the besttttttttttttttttt and this D.I.Y was really quick and simple I also did a mini D.I.Y type of youtube video on these sneakers check it out below!
HOW I DID THIS D.I.Y!
|..... Use fabric paint in any colour to create an image of your choice on footwear!|
|Buy/Use studs and spikes, i got mine from ebay!|
|to draw on the canvas sneakers|
|Use the hole puncher to cut holes in fabric for studs/spikes, make sure you choose the correct size on hole punch when making a hole|
|Lightly draw a dotted line on the footwear|
|Then create a hole in the footwear where you placed the pencil mark/dot|
P.S I hope you all have a fabulous weekend!!
