Crafting 101

Some of the best crafts are the easiest crafts and this craft just proves that point...

Tennie Ties
  • shoelaces (plain white ones)
  • DecoArt So Soft fabric paint
  • pencil & tape
  • permanent markers
Now decorate your shoelaces however you want...to match your mood, your outfit, your favorite team...or just go crazy and see what happens....

The DecoArt fabric paint can be painted on (in a design of your choice) or lay down some wax paper and drizzle the paint over the laces...you can use one color or a couple colors.

Wrap the laces around the pencil (from one end to the other) and then you use the permanent markers to "paint" lines from tip to tip on the laces.

Make animal prints or dots or whatever else your imagination can come up with. You can have laces for every day of the week, holidays and ones that fit your mood (no matter what that might be)...

Have fun!
