I am so excited for this post because I finally got around to do this cute D.I.Y project. I have been lusting over these amazing Kate Spade polka dot ked sneakers. The only downside is they are $75 yikes! So what does a stingy/budget friendly fashionista do? Make them her self of course. Here is how you can achieve a similar result. Please remember these are inspired and not an exact replica.


What you will need:
-White Ked like sneakers (mine are from target)
-Black and Pink all-purpose paint
-Foam roller (circle shaped)
-A paper plate
-A small brush

**This process can take up to an hour to complete and 6-12 hours for the shoes to dry.**


I used Martha Stewart paint from Michael’s these were $1.39 on sale.


Place a small amount of black paint onto your paper plate and use your foam roller to create the circles. Spaces them as close or as far apart as you want. I decided to use two different size circles just for a variety but you can use whatever you want. Get creative this does not have to be perfect.


The next step is to paint the trim on your shoe with a bright pink. I free-handed this and it is not as neat as I would like it to be but I like the human touch it gives my shoes. While you are at it don’t forget to paint the tips of your shoe laces and your DONE!


Allow for these to dry over night until you put the laces back in. Here is your finished product.


Don’t forget to check out the video I made in regards to this post. It takes you step by step on how to achieve these awesome looking sneakers.
