Refashion an old pair of sneakers with Sharpies

Hmm… what to do next with your Sharpie markers?

Why not experiment with an old pair of canvas sneakers that were probably soon headed to a landfill anyway.

Choose the colors you want to use, then practice doodling on a sheet of paper, sticking with simple shapes and designs.

Once you feel confident, start drawing right on the canvas.

You don’t have to be an artist to do this—simply doodle away… just like when you’re holed up in a boardroom meeting at work while somebody is droning on and on and on. 🙂

Once you’ve finished drawing and coloring your designs, you can also use a glue gun or a bit of fabric glue to add embellishments such as beads or sequins.

You can also spray them with a clear sealant, for added protection.

Who knows? Perhaps you’ll be the one wearing the coolest pair of sneakers this summer!

(Duh! I put my initials on the wrong feet—oh well, c’est dommage.)
