For Christmas, I wanted to get my sister a pair of TOMS, that were custom painted. I’ve seen some awesome ones that had school stuff on them, but guess how much they were? $130! When just the TOMS were $45. So after I got a confident boost from my Painting With A Twist class (see below), I decided to do it!
So… here’s how to paint TOMS.
- Start with a blank pair. If I would have thought about the colors used, I would have bought a tan-colored pair.
- Paint the solid colors.
- Start with the designs. I sketched all of mine out on paper and practiced. The best advice: USE PAINT PENS
- Finish with any embellishments. I chose to do some rhinestone initials.
- Seal the shoes! I used a clear acrylic paint.
- Send them off!
