Show your love of Doctor Who with these awesome Tardis shoes! These shoes are incredibly easy and cheap to make, and there are little tricks that will help you if you aren't incredibly artistic. This DIY tutorial comes from the wonderfully creative people at The Farmer's Daughter.
For this project, you will need:
-- Blue canvas shoes (or you can get white ones and paint them blue)
-- Black and white fabric paint
-- Masking tape or painter's tape
-- Black fabric permanent marker
-- White paint pen
-- Paint brush
You can find the majority of these items at a craft store.
Prepare your shoes
Stuff your shoes full of newspaper so that they will keep the form while you paint them. Then, take masking tape and put the masking tape on the soles of the shoes. This will keep them clean while you paint the shoes.
Draw the outline
Place masking tape on the shoes, as shown in the first picture. (You can do this freehand or follow these steps if you need more help.) Then, take the black permanent marker and draw the outlines of the windows on the edge of the masking tape, as shown in the picture on the right.
Paint on the shoes
Use the paint brush and the fabric paint to paint on the black strip right beneath the opening of the shoes. Then, paint the white paint toward the toe of the shoes to make the windows, as shown in the picture.
Write on the text
Take the white fabric marker and write on the "Police Public Call Box" on the black strip beneath the opening of the shoes. Let the paint dry completely before wearing.
Rock your awesome Tardis canvas shoes and go watch some Doctor Who!
