  4. I was actually thinking about spray painting a pair of shoes for a costume...does it make them feel weird or anything??

    1. Danielle, Be sure to wear socks that you do not care about! The paint discolored my socks, but since they are just for running it did not matter. We also spray painted the shoes the day before we ran in them. I would suggest painting them a week ahead!

    1. So easy Lonna and the paint is only about $3. Be sure to remove the laces before painting though!

  9. I was Minnie for last years Wine and Dine! Didn't look nearly as good as yours does. Your costumes are always so cute! I have yet to spray paint a pair of sneakers yet for my costume. Maybe when I know they're approaching retirement I'll take the plunge. Thanks for the "how to"! :)
