The following post is sponsored by Aleene’s
Sometimes, you just need a change. I spotted these cute rose gold shoes and knew they would be the perfect canvas for painting into these DIY leopard print shoes! As much as I loved them as stand-alone rose gold, something about leopard print just POPS. Using Tulip Slick Dimensional Paint, I gave them a painted shoe makeover in less than an hour, and you can too! Leopard print is surprisingly easy to paint because each spot is unique. Using brown and black (or other colors! Lisa Frank rainbow leopard is always an option!), you can make unique shoes that you can show off for back-to-school season or just because.
Tulip Dimensional Paints make this DIY leopard print shoes makeover really easy because the small bottle openings are perfect for intricate details. Recreating this leopard print pattern on a pair of shoes is really as simple as painting splotches and outlining them with a second color to make them stand out. Check out the video below to see for yourself! 👇🏼
- Pair of shoes
- Tulip Slick Dimensional Paint, black and brown
Step 1: Use the brown paint to paint “splotches” all over the shoe. Try varying shapes and sizes all the way to the base of the shoe.
Step 2: While still wet, use the black paint to partially outline the brown shapes. Do not trace the entire shape, just a random selection, to create a leopard print pattern.
Repeat with each shoe and let them dry completely overnight before wearing.
That’s it! Honestly, these DIY leopard print shoes are one of the easiest ways to makeover a pair of shoes. Plus, now that you’ve seen how easy it is to paint leopard print, you’ll want to add it to everything!
