Do you have a pair of old white tennis shoes that you have laying around? Why not paint them green and paint shamrocks around the shoes for a some St. Patrick's Day foot wear. These such a great idea and I love them. If you do not want the whole shoe green just paint the shamrocks and instead of the shoe laces (which you can use and paint green) use some green ribbon the same size as your shoe laces. You friends will think you are a genius for thinking of this. Super tutorial.
