The Beautiful Mess blog knows that the best thing about designing your own shoes is that they’re one of a kind, just like you.

It’s super easy to create chic, customized sneakers for the warm season. Head out and buy any pair of white sneaker -- a simple pair of Keds or Vans would do the trick. Better yet, if you have an old pair of white sneakers lying around, give them a revamp and save some cash. From there, grab some fabric markers or fabric paint and design your shoes however you wish. If you need more guidance, you can always use different types of stencils in order to create a more exact design.

Designing your own shoes looks awesome and is a fun and creative activity to do with friends or on a rainy day. Once you're done creating your new spring shoes, all you’ll need is some spring weather Stats for Flamboyant DIY Spring Sneakers Trending: Older & Buzzing
