Mickey & Minnie DIY Disney Shoes

Last month I was so privileged to go to Disney World with Mindy from Cutegirlshairstyles.  In preparation for the trip I decided it would be fun to make some cute shoes for my youngest to wear while there.  I saw this cute design and decided to make my own.  

After I showed you what I made there was an overwhelming amount of response from fans wanting a tutorial.  If you are unsure, practice on paper first!  Keep practicing, its how you learn.  

Items Needed For This Project:

  • Shoes:  I purchased these at RUE 21.  They were $16.  Other stores to look- Forever 21, Wet Seal, Target or Wal Mart. 
  • Craft Paint:  I used the acrylic craft paint from my local craft store.  Try to find the gloss finish for this project.  
  • Paint Brushes:  I purchased a multi brush package at my craft store.  
  • MIsc: Cup of water, paper towels, white colored pencil, pattern.  See attachment below.

I hope you have an amazing time on your Disney Adventure! Good luck with your painting.  Please feel free to post your pictures on the Showmecute Facebook, Twitter or Instagram pages!

  1. You put to use acrylic paint versus fabric. Will this wear out over time? Why is acrylic better than fabric?
