Keds are a staple shoe that are essential in every Spring wardrobe. Gone are the days of the plain white Keds – they come in a bevy of colors, prints, and cool graphics. Even with all the choices, how can you make your Keds stand out? Our senior stylist Erin shows you how to take your Keds and make them your own with a little glitter and paint!
What you’ll need:
-Keds (any color works – we used Keds Champion Originals Sneaker because they have glitter laces!)
-Plate or paint pallet
-Glitter (we used a mix of fine and thick glitter)
-High Gloss Modge Podge
Take shoelaces out of the Keds and tape over the soles.
Mix your glitter with fabric paint. We mixed thin glitter and thick glitter to get a cool, textured look.
Paint on two coats of the glitter-paint mixture. We painted the upper with the blue glitter mixture and the main part of the shoe with the silver glitter mixture. We also painted around the seams to keep some of the original color showing.
Let your shoes dry at least 4-5 hours.
Seal the dried glitter Keds with hi-gloss Modge Podge. Let dry overnight.
Replace shoe laces. Rock your customized Keds!
