I'm studying a lot, but you know, crafting helps me to be a bit more relaxed.
In this tutorial I'm going to show you how to make your own pair of flower print oxfords!
It's supereasy and you just need a few things.


»Sto studiando moltissimo, ma cimentarmi in nuove creazioni, provando nuove tecniche mi rilassa molto.
In questo tutorial, vi mostrerò come fare il vostro paio di oxford shoes con i fiori!
E' facilissimo e avrete bisogno di pochissimi materiali, reperibili ovunque.

What you'll need ~ Cosa vi serve:

  • Shoes ~ Scarpe;
  • Mod Podge/Vinyl Glue ~ Colla Vinilica;
  • Laser Printed Pattern (Ink prints won't work, you can use magazine pages) ~ Fantasia floreale stampata con stampante laser (altrimenti il colore perderà di intensità, potete usare le pagine di un giornale);
  • Brush ~ Pennello;
  • Scissors ~ Forbici;
  • Transparent Spray Paint ~ Vernice trasparente spray.

Clean your shoes
~ Pulisci accuratamente le scarpe


Print your pattern (You can download the full page pattern HERE, I downloaded the original version from Deviantart, but I don't remember the link of the creator. If someone knows, please send me the link so I can credit back)
~ Stampa la tua fantasia con stampante laser o utilizza una fantasia presente sulla pagina di un giornale


Turn the sheet and draw the shape you need, then cut it. You don't have to be very accurate, you can always cut it.
~ Gira il foglio e disegna la forma che ti serve. Non devi essere particolarmente preciso, infatti appoggiando il foglio sulla scarpa puoi sempre tagliare le parti in eccesso.


Once cut the piece, cut it again in half (so it would be easier to glue). Then turn the sheet to make the pieces for the other sides of the shoes.
~ Una volta tagliato, taglia il pezzo in due (così sarà più semplice attaccarlo). Poi gira nuovamente il foglio per tagliare i pezzi per l'altro verso della scarpa.

With a brush take the Mod Podge/Vinyl Glue and paint the shoes and attached the sheet
~ Con un pennello prendi la colla vinilica e spalmala sulla parte della scarpa che vuoi coprire. Poi attacca il pezzo di foglio.


Cover again the sheet attached on the shoes with Mod Podge/Vinyl Glue.
~ Spalma un altro strato di colla vinilica sulla parte di foglio incollata sulla scarpa

Repeat those steps until you finish your shoes. Wait 24 hours, then spraypaint with transparent paint.
Wait 5 minutes.
You're done!
Ripeti questi passaggi finché non hai finito entrambe le scarpe. Aspetta 24 ore, poi spruzza un po' di vernice trasparente sulle scarpe.
Aspetta 5 minuti.
