Most shoes have shoelaces on the upper, connecting the medial and lateral parts after one puts their shoes on and aiding in keeping their shoes on their feet. Use the rag to apply the bleach to the surface of the shoes. They would look great at just the toes, or heels, if you only wanted doily accents, vs. Abby Davis September 21, at 2:
Wash the shoes in a bucket of soap and water. This will stop the bleach from acting and prevent it from eating away at the fabric. Allow the shoes to dry.
After that you may want to wash them so they stop smelling like bleach. This method will work best on shoes that are made completely out of canvas, such as Vans and Toms. If you have a pair of shoes that lace up or have a rubber toe cap, try this method instead. Here's a list of what you'll need: Canvas sneakers Bleach Water Plastic tub Rubber gloves. Consider removing the inserts. If your sneakers have inserts inside, you can pull those out and set them aside. This way, they will be their original color when you put them back in.
This can create a nice contrast. You want to protect your hands from the bleach solution. Fill a plastic tub with bleach and water. For a stronger solution, use one part bleach and one part water.
For a weaker solution, use one part bleach and two parts water. The water-bleach solution needs to be deep enough so that you can submerge the shoes completely. The plastic tub needs to be long enough so that you can sit your shoes inside. Place your sneakers in the plastic tub. Try to set them upside down in the tub. This way, more of the fabric gets covered with bleach. Leave the sneakers in the tub until you get the desired effect.
This will take one to five hours, depending on how dark the shoes are to begin with, and how light you want them to become. Keep in mind that some of the darker colors will never fully turn white. Some colors, such as black, will turn orange or brown.
Be sure to check back on the shoes every 10 to 60 minutes. Take the shoes out of the bleach solution and wash them using soap and water. This will stop the bleach from acting. It will also get rid of the smell.
Let the shoes dry before lacing them back up. It will take about three hours for them to fully dry. You can use a spray bottle to completely cover your sneakers with bleach, or to splatter them. Here's a lit of what you will need: Consider taking the laces out of your sneakers.
This will help you bleach them more evenly, and prevent you from damaging the laces. Put on a pair of rubber gloves to protect your hands. Even though you are working with a spray bottle, there is a good chance that some bleach may drip onto your skin. The gloves will keep your skin safe. Fill a clean spray bottle with bleach and water. The bottle should have a nozzle with two to three settings: Close the spray bottle and shake it.
This will mix up the bleach and water inside. Start spraying your shoes. Use the "spray" setting to squirt a few splatters onto your sneakers. Already a Shipping Pass member?

Items sold by Walmart. I'm not big on the neon trend, but this shade of pink is rather nice. Also, if you dislike those nude shoes you bought while that trend was hot I wear flats more than heels since I stopped working in call center. I do wear heels occasionally for fun when I'm doing more than errands and meeting Alex at the bus stop.
I'd love to dress up my old flats with something nicer like lace. Sometimes just a little lace goes a long way on a pair of shoes. There are many ways to add lace accents, and also this takes less time. Instant gratification crafts are fantastic! Singer Kerli shows us how she turned an old pair of boots from Shabby to Chic.
If you like being over the top with lace raises hand then try making these super fancy boots. These use lace, appliques, tulle, and beading to transform an old pair of boots into something extremely fancy.
These are very over the top and costumey, but that's not a bad thing. I wear a lot of costumes and love wearable art, so I would love to have these! Crafts that require recycling can be very fun. These paper shoe makeover will make you look at the paper around you in a different way!
The post is in Swedish, but I have Google Chrome which translates it automatically for me. If you don't have that, use Google Translate. Input Anna's text and translate it to what ever your preferred language is.
Ok, after you've done that, you will see that she mentioned she used "bookmarks" as her floral paper. This might be lost in translation, or a cultural difference. Either way, this technique can be used with magazines, book pages, napkins, wrapping paper, or any type of decorative paper.
Just make sure you seal it well! Mod Podge's outdoor formula would be perfect for this! It works with wood which is paper is made of and you'll wear your shoes outside some too, so the outdoor protection is needed.
