May Arts & Converse: The Perfect Pair!


This is SUPER EASY!  Ready?  Okay, here we go.  Cut two lengths of ribbon (You can use the same or do a different one for each shoe depending on how much you want to channel Punky Brewster.  Just say’n.) at 1 ½ yards each.  This is approximately the same length as the laces that come in the Converse to begin with.

Use the lighter to very carefully ‘seal’ the edges of the ribbon so it will not fray.  This is harder to do with the twill, be aware.  (There may have been a quick run to the sink on that one.  *maybe*  Just say’n.)

Lace your shoes!  That’s it!  And look at how cute this is!!!

You can use just about any kind of ribbon you want and totally customize your Converse!  I had so much fun trying the different kinds!  Have a happy day!!!

    I have been eyeing the cute little kids converse shoes at Target, and now I MIGHT just have to get a pair for the wee ones because it would just be SO cool to dress them up with all sorts of girly May ribbons!

    What a fun idea!  This is a good idea to remember next time shoelaces need repaired/replaced!

    My daughter had to have a pair of converse this year.  And she chose the ones that had all the fun color shoe strings.  She will love this Idea to add ribbon.
