DIY Masked + Printed Geometric Flats

DIY Stripe ShoeHeels are great and all, but sometimes a good pair of flats is what I REALLY need. Take this weekend for example. I'm going on a little road trip with my husband and I know we'll be walking a lot. I've gotten into this situation in wooden heels before and it's not happening again. I have been on a mission to collect cute flats this year. This time, I thought it would be fun to make a cute pair for our trip! I purchased a plain pair of teal flats in a suede-like material (this material is perfect for paint). Here's how I printed them at home- 

Stripe Shoe DIY1. Use masking tape to create a fun, geometric pattern. Think stripes or triangles... any shape you are comfortable cutting out about 50 times. ;) I cut masking tape pieces in half with varying lengths for a fun, irregular stripe. 2. Be sure to press the edges of the tape over the seams around the sole and inside the shoe for the cleanest results. 3. Use matte fabric paint and a small, flat brush to paint a coat over the entire surface. When dry, remove the tape and enjoy your new pair of flats. It's fun having a piece of clothing that no one else has.
