DIY Comic Shoes

This month's theme at the monthly pop-up shop The Express is Comics. So, in honor of them I wanted to share this simple and creative DIY tutorial on how to make Comic Book Flats.

Mod Podge
Foam brush

Let's get started!

Cut out pieces of comics in various shapes. Determine your preferred placement. Then apply Mod Podge to the back of the clipping and position on the shoe and once more after you have positioned it where you want. Continue all the way around being sure to cover all areas of the shoe as well as creating a smooth edge around the top of the shoe. You don't want to scratch your foot when putting it on after it has dried. Mod Podge acts as both glue as well as a varnish. You want to apply a minimum of 3 layers of Mod Podge to fully secure the clippings to the shoe as well as protect the prints from wear and tear. Allow Mod Podge to dry completely between applications. 

Have fun! Feel free to post links to your blogs, pins or tweets showing our finished product!
