Skill Level: Beginner

Whether you're planning a wedding, Easter, or other fancy outfit, you can easily dress up children's shoes using beads, tape and thread. Make them as sparkly as desired, using colorful threads that match your theme.

Materials used in our model:

  • • 3/4" Treasure Tape™ roll

  • • Star shape Treasure Tape™

  • • Diamond Beadlets®

  • • shallow pan or tray

  • • Kreinik #12 Braid 032 Pearl

  • • Kreinik 1/16" Ribbon 019 Pewter

  • • children's shoes

Instructions:

1. Lay a strip of 3/4" Treasure Tape across the front of your shoe. Remove the red liner to expose the sticky part.
2. Begin thread decorating by laying pieces of 1/16" Ribbon as top and bottom borders. Fill in with swirls and curls of #12 Braid Pearl. Leave a blank space in the center, where we'll add the star.
3. Lay a large Treasure Tape star on top of the tape strip in the center. Remove the red liner to expose the sticky top.
4. Decorate the star by outlining the shape with 1/16" Ribbon, and filling in the shape with the Braid. If desired, you can add buttons, sequins or cabochons, but lay these large embellishments first, then decorate with the thread.
5. When decorating is complete, lay the shoe in a shallow pan and cover remaining sticky ares with Diamond Beadlets.
