{Tutorial} Handpainted Scott's Wedges

This is a fun way to decorate plain black slippers into something more girly.  Not only does it look pretty, it helps to identify who it belongs to.  Here in Hawaii, everyone wears slippers daily.  Although these are Scott's which are expensive but super durable, there are times when you go to someone's house or have visitors at your house, or go to a party and when it's time to leave you find them missing and are never recovered.  These are the girl version of Scott's so there is a little wedge heel which is super cute, I wish they had this style in womens.

So, I totally forgot to take photos for a tutorial but I thought it was a great idea to share anyway.

Step 1: Choose your pair of slippers

Step 2: Gather your choice of nail polish or fabric paint.  I used nail polish in white and fushia.

Step 3: Decide on your design.  My daughter chose dot flowers and wanted the white to be the center.

Step 4: Add your design

Step 5: Air dry.  This one dried fast because I used the fast dry nail polish.

Now my daughter has a cute pair of slippers which are unique and one of a kind and no one will mistaken them as theirs.

This concept is not new.  It is common to find nail polish dots in the front center of rubber slippers here in Hawaii so you can tell your slippers apart from others.  Well, that and the sharpie marker name written on the sides.  They all look so much alike.

We started off with the idea of gluing buttons on or tying fabric scraps or a fabric flower.  There are really endless ideas for this idea.

Hope you found this helpful.  =)
