Mod Podged shoes.

I’ve never featured two bloggers in a post at the same time, but I’m feeling wild and crazy today. Crazy is a good adjective actually, because Mod Podged shoes prove to me that NOTHING is too crazy to Mod Podge. Except maybe a baby diaper. Or a plant. Or your pug (no, I haven’t tried it).

As far as the projects, the first pair you see above is by Erika at Oops! I Craft My Pants – visit her entry here. The second pair is by Ashley at Make It and Love It – her tutorial is here. Now you know not to throw away those old shoes. Mod Podge them!

    I admit, I love doing shoes also.
    Paper doesnt work well, but fabric is easy!

    I am glad I found you-people as crazy about glue as I am!

    First, the name of Erika’s blog is hilarious! Second, I NEVER would have thought of doing shoes. Man oh man! You never fail to bring us the goods.

    Can I comment here for the book giveaway? I am already a follower and I posted a link to your giveaway on my blog,

    I seen these and want to try it but I’m scared! Need to find an old pair of shoes in case I mess them up. They are adorable!

  4. Erika @ Oops! I Craft My Pants! says

    Oh my goodness. I didn’t expect to see those here when I clicked on your blog!
    Thank you so much. You are THE best.

    Also, my husband and I were joking about the Mod Podging a pug thing yesterday. I asked him if it would be okay to Mod Podge Oscar’s ears. He said no.

    Um… Me and My half-sister just started our comments with “oh my goodness”… I swear I didn’t see her post when I wrote that.

    Those are adorable. I wonder if it will work on my old pair of fake leather shoes that are all scuffed up. They couldn’t look any worse than they do now! What a great idea.

    I am seriously doing this one soon. I am thinking purple and black striped ones for my Halloween witch costume!

    So cute!

    Too cute!!! Thanks for the visit, much appreciated! I have so much Mod Podge under my nails I don’t think I’ll ever get it all out! LOL I’ve been using SO much Mod Podge lately~ from the cinnamon apples you saw, to caramel apples, to my bathroom cabinets makeover. Currently doing a kitchen makeover that includes using it once again on cabinets…but in a different way….a much longer process. Wish I had them done, at that point where I want to go one do something else!!LOL

    Wow! I love this. I have all the supplies in my closet right now. Now I know what I will be doing this week. THANK YOU for the inspiration. Love it!

    LOVE the second pair here. I must try that- perfect way to re-use old flats.
    Also, love your blog- so much fun to read! Makes me wish I had more time on my hands. And I’m following the blog & on twitter.

    Hey everyone, thank you for the great comments! As far as holding up, I’ve never made them, but I can offer you some tips for Mod Podge durability in general.

    Just don’t wear them while wet and soggy outside, and hit them with a spray outdoor sealer. This should help you get a lot of wear!

    xo to all, your comments keep me going!!
