DIY painted hightop sneakers: Quarantine crafts with Jasmin *Woo Hoo*

Hey hey! How are you, lovelies? I’m relatively good, I’m going crazy with the quarantine. I’ve been writing quite a bit of letters, riding dirt bikes, and doing crafty things. The other day while scrolling through Pinterest (something I’ve been doing quite a lot) I seen some embroidered converse high tops and they looked super cute. I have two of the exact same pics of off brand converse like high tops so I figured, why not try to design/personalize my older pair thats falling apart? That way, if I mess up, it’s not a huge deal! After surfing Pinterest for a while more, I decided that embroidering shoes sounded kinda hard, and I would probably massacre my fingers with the needle, so I decided to try painting my shoes! I looked up painted shoes and I decided that I wanted either sunflowers or butterflies and I decided….. can u guys guess?!? (Well if you looked at the picture you can tell ;)) I decided butterflies! YaYaY! So I decided I would do a diy crafty type post, and maybe even start a series “Quarantine crafts with Jasmin” 😂 What do you think? Let me know in the comments 😉 Anywho: Onto the post!

Okay! Step one, I sketched a butterfly onto the side of my shoe with a piece of chalk. They kind of turned out ugly but I figured that I could kind of even the wing size out while painting them 🙂 Step two, I painted the whole chalk outline white. I figured that was a good base color. Then I used a sharpie and drew the design for my butterfly, I chose a monarch butterfly 🙂 Step three: I painted the butterfly in with orange, painted the border black and added some white spots, dots, and lines. Step four: Then I went over the orange again to make the color more vibrant and then, I was finished! Four easy steps! I really liked how they turned out, and so I dragged my sister outside and made her take some pictures of me wearing them 😉 I think that they will be a really cute addition to an outfit, adding a pop of color and such! Here are some more pictures!

They kind of wrinkle but oh welp…
Cute stuff am I right?

And thats all for today! Have you ever personalized shoes before? Would you want to see more “Quarantine crafts with Jasmin”? Let me know in the comments, talk to me, I like LONGGGGGG comments :) I hope you enjoyed this post and Stay safe lovelies!

ALSO: One of my best friends/pen-pals started a blog!!! Her name is Allison and her blog is Apocketfullofsunshine04.wordpress.com! Make sure to check it out, She’s so sweet and I can NOT wait to see where God brings her and her blog!

  3. Those look so AMAZING!!!! Converse are already adorable to begin with and you made them even cuter( which I didn’t think was possible)! 😂 It looked like you had fun making them and the results were great. I have never painted on shoes but, I did tie dye my white shoes once. I also got that idea from Pinterest, I mean what can I say Pinterest is pretty amazing. Great post and such a crafty idea!!

      1. Haha, your welcome! 😂 I liked how my shoes turned out, it was basically a rainbow tie-dye on my formerly white sneakers. I love doing DIY crafts and I plan on trying out what you did on your converse.

  6. I love custom shoes. I’ve made them for myself, and for friends as gifts. I’ve even considered making an Etsy shop, for painted Converse. Needless to say, I enjoyed your post, and I’m glad you had fun painting your shoes.
