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.

-Acrylic paint
-Lots of time & patience

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!


  1. That's quite interesting!
    I wouldn't have thought to do that.
    It looks nice(:
