Materials List

  • DecoArt® Stylin™ in Black, Pink, and Turquoise
  • Paintbrushes
  • White pumps and clutch



  1. Luckily, 80’s patterns are super easy to create! For the shoes, I started with a Pink circle in the center

  2. Once that dried, I added a Turquoise triangle. The final touch was to add a few thin Black confetti lines along the outer edge of the shoe.


  1. For the clutch, I wanted to tie in the design of the shoes, but make it slightly different. For this, I started with a large Turquoise triangle in the center.

  2. Use the back of the paintbrush to add polka dots in Black around the triangle.

  3. Once dry, the shoes and clutch are ready to wear!

Woah! I did not realize it woud be this easy to transform a pair of shoes or clutch with this 80s design. I love the look to wear everyday. You can even dress up for halloween or an 80s day event by creating yourown shoes and clutch instead of searching for some. This is also a great way to bring that look back. Super easy.
