You may be noticing a strange pompom trend on my blog, it's not an illusion. After last week's pompom trimmed pencil case I decided I loved the trim too much not to give it another go in a totally different way with shoes. I had purchased these shoes for a friend's wedding and they got a little muddy and stained due to unforeseen rain showers, but I'm not one to throw something out because of a little stain. So, these pretty little grey flats sat in my closet for over a year until I finally came up with an idea of how to bring them back to life and make them wearable again. Join me for a shoe transformation diy, or circus tent flats as I've so lovingly named them.

NOTE: I first scrubbed as much of the dirt off as I could, and luckily the areas with the most stains concentrated around the toe, heel and rim of the shoe. If you're working with new shoes you won't need to worry about this step.
I finished both shoes in less than an hour, including drying time. A quick and easy way to update a pair of worn out flats for spring, summer, and fall. Try this project with different types of trim and paint colors to showcase your personal style. big kiss, bekuh
