Mod Podge Comic book shoes! How cool are these shoes???? Too cool!

If you follow this blog on Facebook,
you will know that I have been telling you all about my love for Mod Podge.
This is why…

Oh, how I love these shoes!
Kiara loves these shoes so much that as soon as she saw them, she wanted to have a pair for herself.

I think we are going to end up with quite a few pairs of Comic shoes in our household.

This is all you need,


015


Mod Podge (decoupage medium)
a comic book
pair of ballet flat shoes
scissors
paintbrush
newspaper to protect you work surface


Cut out the pictures that you want to use.

Arrange them on your shoes to get a feel for what they will look like.

Make sure that the best picture is at the toes because that is what everyone will see first when you are wearing them.

Using a paintbrush, apply a layer of mod podge to the back of one of the pictures (starting at the toes) & place it on the shoe.

(you may need to cut little slits around the edge of the picture so that it bends around the shoe)


017


Paint a layer of mod podge over the top of that picture & make sure there are no bubbles or creases.
Keep repeating until the shoe is covered.


018


019


When the mod podge has dries, apply another 3 layers of mod podge over the top (making sure that each layer dries completely before doing the next)

  7. What a good idea! I can never find flats that I love, so I'm literally wearing holes in the bottoms of the one pair I own that I love.

  10. These are seriously cute. I can see that they might become sort of addicting as I would want a pair with all of my favorite comics on them.

  16. So glad to hear that everyone loves these as much as I do! I used a comic book that had been sitting in my linen cupboard for years, I think I may have brought it from a second hand shop! If anyone makes themselves a pair of these shoes, please post a pic on the facebook page so I can see your creation!

  17. Just brilliant! I've seen this type of thing done before but not with comic books! They look fantastic!

  19. How Fun! I finally figured out that there were two pair pictured, duh!

    I came here from the "Homemaker on a Dime" site because this is such a great idea for our Linky Party too this week. The theme is 'Creative Final Resting Place Ideas' this time.

    Would you like to add your post to our site? We're somewhat new yet getting good traffic already and ranking very well for the search engines.

    We'd love to host your 'link' there this week too!

  24. are there some shoe fabrics this works better on than others? i've seen this done before and had no idea it was something completely within my skill set. i want to do this immediately

    ReplyDelete
  25. I am pretty sure that it will work on any fabric that isn't too pourous!

    ReplyDelete
  26. oh. my. gosh. Those are toooo cool! Mod Podge is amazing stuff, isn't it?! I never would have thought to use it for a project like this though...genius! Would you share here?

  31. Hi...love the shoes...but I have one question..I tried this before on a pair of tennis shoes but mine cracked when my daughter wore them..She loved them so much and everyone at her school did too...But the sad part was after one wear they began to crack and the paper started to peel away...has this happened to you..Thanks for sharing...Love, Love this idea!! any help would be great

  32. I had the same problem, I used fabric and mod-podged it onto sneakers. Looked so cute, but made the shoes so stiff that they were uncomfortable to wear:-(
    They also cracked pretty quick. So if anyone has any suggestions I would love to hear them, thanks!

  33. Loved this post, please link it with me tomorrow at Wow Us Wednesday!

  34. I'm thinking you could waterproof sneakers first ... also could use a more fexible glue ... than use modpodge over the top to smooth down & then use a spray varnish as a last step to water proof it all ...

    ReplyDelete
  35. U could also use fabric with the same method as above ...
