Flashback Friday: ’80s Neon Splatter Paint Shoes

shoesmainED

It’s no secret that I love that 80s, so I was especially excited to spruce up my girls’ shoes with this flashback Friday neon splatter paint craft. It may get a little messy, but what’s crafting without a little extra paint everywhere? So grab your neon paint, turn on some ’80s tunes and get ready for some splattering fun.

Instructions:
Step 1: To keep the mess under control, protect a large work surface with craft paper.
Step 2: Dip your paintbrush in the first color, making sure it is thoroughly coated with lots of excess paint.
