Hey everyone and Happy Friday to you all! Today we have an ultra exciting craft to share with you! A craft for your feet! I am sure you have seen all of the decoden things out these days especially phone cases. In this post I am going to share with you the easiest way to achieve that awesome decoden (also known as dekoden) look and make some super cute shoe clips!
Here is what you will need, all of which is available at your local Michael’s store:
–FolkArt Multi-Surface Paints
-Plain Shoe Clips (not pictured)
Step 1: Using either a high temp mini glue gun and Mod Melts, fill each hole. Start squeezing in the center and work your way out to the edges.
Step 2: Pop them out of the silicon mold after they have hardened completely. They only take a couple of minutes!
Step 3: Apply Plaid’s Multi Surface Paint onto the shapes with a pouncer. I chose to do 2 bigger gems in each color and did all of the little pearls in the light pink color.
Step 4: This is my favorite step! Just like you would ice a cake, you are going to use the tip on the pipping bag and fill the face of the shoe clip with Collage Clay which is such a lightweight clay, kind of like whipped cream clay. I created a cool effect by sort of swirling it. It totally looks like fake whip cream! You can also make little stars or another design!
Step 5: Place the painted Mod Melt gems into the wet Collage Clay in the arrangement that you like best.
Step 6: Glitter Time! I love the Podgeable Glitters- they are just like little fairies that poof the perfect amount of glitter on to your project! Very little waste here. To remove any excess glitter, simply place them over the trash can and blow on them.
After letting them sit overnight, clip your new decoden shoe clips onto a pair of plain flats. DIY shoe clips are the perfect way to take a boring old pair of shoes from drab to fab! I absolutely adore these decoden ones, I think they look like little cupcakes on my toesies and make me happy when I look down. How would you decorate your shoe clips?
*Collage Clay is not recommended for children ages 12 and under, and the product is not edible. Small parts are a choking hazard for children.
