Pies + DIYs: Memorial Day Weekend Edition

Welcome to another episode of Pies + DIYs! I’m sure you can guess what this series is all about — doing DIYs while eating pie :) You can tune in every Wednesday to pick what DIY project I (Kelly) will make LIVE! I only have three tools and six materials to work with to create the DIY of your choice. Hope to see you all there!

In this episode, we updated an old accessory, making it into something new for Memorial Day. I turned basic white sneakers into flag kicks by using a mix of different types of fabric paint and painter’s tape. To create the red striped sneaker, I made stripes using painter’s tape and then sprayed the whole shoe with red fabric spray paint — which I LOVE. Once the shoe dried, I peeled off the tape to reveal the red stripes. For the star sneaker, I used blue fabric paint and blue puff paint to hand paint and then outline the stars to make them really stand out.

Thanks for watching and we’ll see you next week!
