Floral Canvas Shoes

I found some white canvas shoes in the back of my closet the other day, and I decided to revive them to make them more wearable.

After searching and searching, I stumbled on this perfect tutorial by Always Rooney (who is a total genius) to use. I love how these DIY floral canvas shoes turned out!

Iron on Transfer Shoes

Supplies

  • Canvas sneakers
  • Iron transfer paper
  • Floral pattern to print (I purchased a pack from Etsy; you can find more here)
  • Leather or suede lace
  • Scissors
  • Iron

Step 1: Print your floral pattern on the iron transfer paper.

Step 2: Cut the paper in small pieces. You can trace pieces to fit the shoe, or what I found to be easiest was to cut around small sections of flowers and iron little pieces at a time.

Step 3: Iron the floral all over the shoes (following the instructions for your paper). The iron transfer paper instructions will tell you to put a pillowcase or something thin over the paper while you iron, but that just made it hard to see where I was working.

So I didn’t use the pillowcase, but was careful to not leave the iron on any spot for too long. After peeling the backing off, I tapped the tip of the iron on any areas that looked peel-y, and washed my iron afterward.

Step 4: Replace the laces (if you want) with something more fun.
