Two big trends right now are sugar skulls and TOMS style shoes. When you're a busy mom, there is not alot of time to go shopping around for the trendiest fashion accessories at the best price for your fabulous kidlets…I found these shoes at the Payless Shoe Source for $15.99 and they screamed “Latina!!” to me. I knew they would be perfect for Halloween Sugar Skull shoes.
But how to get the skulls onto the shoes? And where would I find the artwork?
Well, Craft Attitude was the perfect medium for tranferring an image onto these shoes AND I did a quick google search and found a FREE vector file with a cool looking sugar skull — see the supply list for the link.
I printed out the skull twice onto Craft Attitude – I used the 5×7 photo size on my computer to print the images this size.
And just for the heck of it, why not customize with a little “secret bling” on the back of the shoes? These are Preciosa and Crystyler Crystals I added with the Crystyler by Norma Rapko for Walnut Hollow. I topped off the skulls with glitter and more crystals to highlight specific areas of the design.
Check out this video on how to create these from start to finish!
