DIY: Sharpie Tie Dyed Canvas Shoes!

Hey cupcakes! Today I will be teaching you all to do something really awesome with sharpies.... tie dye a pair of canvas shoes!!! There are so many expensive pairs of tie dye Keds and Vans out there, so make them unique and do it yourself! I personally love this DIY because no pair of shoes will turn out exactly like another. There are so many cute results! :D Let's get started!
What You Will Need
- Pair of white canvas shoes (around $5 at Walmart)
- A whole bunch of Sharpies (any color you would like!)
- Rubbing alcohol (Isopropyl alcohol)
- Some type of dropper
- Covered, flat surface

1. Before you begin, try to think of (or sketch) a design. This could be random blocks of color, dots, etc. Use your creativity!

2. Using the Sharpies, draw out the design.
3. Take the dropper and get a small amount of the alcohol. Drip it onto the shoe! The Sharpie colors will then start to blend together!

4. Play around with the alcohol - apply only a little, a lot, whatever you think looks the best!

5. Let your shoes dry and TA-DA! An adorable new pair of kicks! <3 :D
