Fashion on a Shoe String

By: Mark Montano for Krylon

This Fashion on a Shoe String craft from Mark Montano and Krylon is a fun thing to DIY! Make your own shoes with friends by tying string around a boring old pair and painting. Voila, a new pair of kicks!

Fashion on a Shoe String


  • Krylon® Fusion for Plastic® (#2321)
  • Shoes that are crying out for some crafty love
  • Newspaper
  • Yarn


  1. Stuff your shoes with newspaper to protect the insides from paint.
  2. Wrap your shoes in yarn, criss-crossing them at random and making sure to wrap some string around every part of each shoe.

  3. Go outside and place the shoes on a large sheet of newspaper.
  4. Spray paint your shoes with Krylon Fusion and then let the paint dry.
  5. Remove the yarn and admire your handiwork.

Repeat the process with additional colors for a really fun effect. Just make sure that you use contrasting spray paint every time you change up the color, alternating between a light color and then a dark color, and then a light color and then a dark color…
