|Minnie Mouse Inspired Sneakers|
What you'll need:
Pair of canvas sneakers ~ I bought mine at Walmart for $5
Swarovski crystal stones ~ I used size 16ss but you can use whatever size you have on hand
Mickey head template ~ I have a Mickey head paper punch but you can find Mickey head templates online like this one from Milliepie's Musings
1/8" Red Ribbon (for Minnie sneakers only)
a jewel setter tool (with a wax tip so stones can stick to it for easy placement)
a pencil and a scissor
Let's get started! First you trace the Mickey/Minnie head with a pencil wherever you want the Minnie head:
Next, in small sections use the E-6000 to glue the stones to the sneaker using the Mickey/Minnie head as your guide. Use the jewel setter tool to help with placement of the stones. You'll have to move the stones around to get the shape you want. The glue doesn't dry right away which is helpful when shaping your Mickey/Minnie head. The jewel setter tool has wax on the top so you'll notice that the stones have a waxy film on them which easily wipes off when the glue is completely dry.
Once you have your Mickey/Minnie head is filled in completely with the stones, let dry for about 20 minutes .

If making Minnie sneakers, take the 1/8" ribbon and make two small bows. Make sure they are the same size.
Now you are going to glue the bows to Minnie's head. And there you have it!
I added yellow curly laces and red with white polka dot shoe bows but you can personalize how ever you like. Here are some different options:
|I bought these "shoe bows" on Etsy. They are just repurposed hair bows.|
|I bought these yellow curly laces on Etsy also.|
