How to Make Tie-Dyed Shoes With Permanent Markers

It’s crafts time again! This crafts is one of my favorites coz it’s simple and useful. So if you have free time, feel to try this craft. Express your faith through unique arts and crafts!

Tie-dyed clothing never seems to go out of style. Blasting onto the scene in the sixties, it seems that we can never get enough of these colorful designs. Over the years, tie-dyed items have come a long way from the traditional T-shirt. I’ve seen so many tie-dyed items including tote bags, scarves, bedding, paper goods and shoes. This summer, my daughter and I decided to jazz up some $5 white tennis shoes (or sneakers, depending on where you live) that we found at the local craft store. It was the perfect way to spend a rainy afternoon. The following morning, we went outside to complete these masterpieces. I’m thinking that we are definitely going to have to do this craft again with friends. These shoes are my daughter’s own wearable piece of art.

Materials Needed

  • white shoes
  • permanent markers
  • rubbing alcohol 90%
  • straw
  • painter’s tape

Begin by taping off the rubber soles on the shoes with painter’s tape to prevent the markers from bleeding onto the rubber.

Using the markers, add colorful designs to the shoes. We used fireworks as our inspiration.
