DIY: Donut Shoes

A couple of weekends ago I was feeling super crafty. Lily fell asleep early, which meant I could get uninterrupted painting in! My obsession with sprinkled donuts continues. I decided to paint a pair of plain jane flats and make them fabulous!

Here's a tutorial: Sorry for the bad lighting. Hubby was watching t.v. and the only light I had was the lamp above my kitchen table...I digress....

What you'll need:
Shoes (got mine from Wal-mart)
craft paint
small paint brushes
donut stencil (I used what I had. washi tape and hole punch)
plate to put the paint on
(I stenciled before realizing I should probably take pics)

Step 1: Using a pencil, stencil in the donut shapes on your shoes.

Step 2: Use the beige-y donut color and outline the donut outer circles. 

Step 3: Use the pink icing color to outline the inner donut circle.

Step 4: Use the pink paint to create the icing area of the donut.

Step 5: Use the beige paint to fill in the remainder of the donut.

Step 6: Use multicolor paint to create the sprinkles on the donuts.

Step 7: Let them dry and voila!

This was an easy project and I loved how the shoes turned out! If you are feeling crafty and use this tutorial to create your own pair of donut shoes, post them on Instagram and tag me @glitterandjuls!
