  • Tulip Soft Fabric Paint
  • Paint Brush
  • Canvas Tennis Shoes



  1. The first thing I did was paint the purple shoes pink. If you already have a pair of canvas shoes in the color you want you can skip this step. However, with just two coats of Tulip Fabric Paint the purple was gone and it was all about the pink.
  2. I could have left the shoe laces white, but why when they look so much cuter red. I know, I know this picture implies that I painted them striped with a red fabric marker. I did at first, but then later went back and used red spray paint.

  3. Next I painted the toes of my shoes red and while the paint was wet I coated them with red glitter. I also added a little heart to the back of each shoe.

Got that last minute idea to do something cool for that Valentine dance tonight. Well run and grab some red paint and glitter and put on the to the front of your tennis shoes to give it some punch.When you walk in everyone will wonder where you got those super tennis shoes.If you want to add that extra pop find some hearts to glue all around the rest of shoes or paint them with your paint or glitter paint. How cool is that. Simple tutorial.
