DIY: Floral Print Oxfords

Hi! Recently, I went searching for the perfect pair of floral oxfords at Forever 21. It seemed that they only had size 6 in every shoe. I wear an 8. Needless to say I didn't find a pair to bring home. The next day I went thrift shopping and stumbled upon a pair of plain navy oxfords. I decided to pick them up and do a little DIY on them to get the oxfords that I wanted.



Supplies:
-Paintbrush
-Oxfords
-Acrylic paint
-Plate
-Lots of time & patience

Steps:
1. Gather your materials.

2. Clean off the shoes- inside & out.

3. Squirt your chosen colors onto your paper plate.

4. Go wild painting little flowers in all different colors. Paint them on one color at a time. I advise to do your favorite colors first in order to ensure that you have room for them.






5. Let them dry.

6. Wear them all the time!
