You guys! I LOVE polka dots! So I was super excited to be participating in this fun series with you here on Melissa’s site. I have had my eye on some polka dot converse shoes for a while now but didn’t want to pay what they were asking for them. This challenge was the perfect excuse, so I did what any DIY’er would do…I made some polka dot shoes.

Materials needed to make DIY Polka Dot Shoes:
Fabric Paint in the color of your choice
an un-used pencil eraser (on a pencil)
a polka dot stencil or a ruler

Take your stencil and trace where you will be placing the polka dots. Make sure your pencil eraser is slightly larger than the polka dots you have drawn. If it is not bigger, don’t draw a full circle but just place a dot so you don’t see the pencil on the shoe when you are finished.

Aren’t they so fun? My daughter has claimed this pair for herself…it’s a good thing the shoes were buy one get one half off!
