Disclosure: This is a sponsored post as a participant in the Walmart Moms Program.DIY PATRIOTIC Canvas SHOES

Memorial Day and other Patriotic celebrations are right around the corner! I wanted to rock our Red, White, and Blue styles a little longer this year and found a great way to show Patriotism using Canvas Shoes and a few supplies from the craft and art department at Walmart!

I found a great deal on canvas shoes for $5.87 at Walmart! They had women and kid sizes and various colors but I went for the white for more creative space.

Here are the supplies we picked up to DIY our canvas shoes


Potato Stamping on Canvas Shoe

For one pair of canvas shoes I went for a potato stamping design. Using half a potato, carve your desired shape using a butter knife and pencil. Work slow and carve out your shape. Find more potato stamping here

Using the acrylic paint and potato stamp design your shoe. We went for a stars and stripes design. 4 stars fit in front of our shoe and stripes on the sides. I used a paint brush to clean up the areas where the stamp didn’t transfer enough paint. Let it dry for a good 10 minutes before continuing.

Using the fabric markers design desired stripes in red. We did thick and thin to give it a cool look leading to the stars stamped on. 

Once all dry finish it off with some glitter puffy paint. Using your finger dab the puffy paint all over your shoe. It gives it a cool glitzy finish and seals the paint and marker on your shoe.

Give Freestyle designs a go with fabric markers. Sketch out your design lightly with a pencil. Finish it off with markers and seal your design using the glitter puffy paint. 

I went with a hand drawn star using the markers and a pattern of red and blue stars. I added curved stripes and only decorated the front flap of my canvas shoe. It gave it a cool patriotic look while not being too overwhelming!
