DIY AT BAGGINS
White converse (high or low cut) provide a clean canvas for many DIY projects. Baggins Shoes sells hi-tops and low-tops in white and a variety of other colors. https://bagginsshoes.com/converse-converse-chuck-taylor-all-star-low-top-optic-white-m7652.html
1. Add iron on patches to your Chucks.
Lately, I have seen patches being added to bomber jackets and jean jackets, and I love it. With the revival of fun patches, why not add them to Converse? Find patches that match your personal style or a certain theme you have in mind. My favorite look is colorful patches on white hi-tops. With iron on patches, this DIY doesn’t take too long at all. For extra safety, sew in the patches.
2. Add buttons or bottle caps
This is a DIY I have actually done. I recently added bottle caps (the old fashioned kind) to some of my older shoes. Each bottle cap is unique and tells its own story. Adding multiple bottle caps transforms the entire look of the side of the shoe. Buttons can also be used to add some personal flair to the basic sneaker.
3. Use an oil based Sharpie to draw a design on the Canvas
For this DIY be certain to use an oil based Sharpie. However, first using a pencil to trace out your design is a great idea for a successful end DIY project. With the Sharpie in hand, you can mark up your Chucks however you wish. Draw on the toe cap, the rubber sides, or the canvas. Use a black sharpie on a white shoe or multiple colors. The possibilities are endless. If you’re artsy, this is the project for you!
4. Add ribbon laces
This simple DIY can transform the look of your shoe in minutes. Choose a ribbon that compliments the color of your shoes. The ribbon can be a solid color or pattern. Changing the ribbon laces to fit certain holidays is a fun and cost effective way to keep your shoes styling.
