Get a pair of keds or a similar style shoe. Mine are from target.
Remove the laces and stuff the insides with newspaper
Choose a piece of lace to mimic
Tape it on the area you want to paint. Use the tape as a guideline to for where you want the paint
Choose paint or a paint pen. If using paint I suggest using a sponge and a paper plate.
I chose the paint pen in white
Paint over the lace. This is a little harder then it looks
The finished product
Add the laces and congratulations! You have a new pair of keds!
