DIY 50's style Oxford Saddle Shoes!

In case you were wondering, my absolute favorite decade is the 1950's and this summer, my favorite summer camp (Camp Siloam) and my favorite decade are combining! This summer's camp theme is the 50's, so in honor of Camp Siloam... here is a very easy DIY project to make 50's shoes!

To start, you'll need some cheap white lace-up shoes (I found mine at Walmart for less than $5.50) and some permanent markers (fine point and ultra fine point).

Begin drawing the outline of the design with the ultra fine point permanent marker.

The design is the same on the other side.

Here's the back side.

Now that the outline is done, you can start filling in the black with the fine point permanent marker.

Almost done!

And there you go!

Here's what they should look like from the front. Great job!

P.S. Here's another version of the shoes. Be the hostess with the mostest and give 'em a try!
