If you're looking for a way to be extra stylish while still showing off your patriotism, these DIY American flag sneakers are the perfect way to do so. The crafty shoe decorating instructions are available on the Free People blog. With July 4th coming up in a few weeks, this freedom-loving footwear is seasonally appropriate.

By beginning with white Converse, you have a blank slate. Of course, you could substitute the Chuck Taylors for any other white shoe. To ensure your red and white stripes are pristine, blogger Jana suggests using tape while painting. Then add star stickers and blue paint in the center, and your new American flag sneakers will be ready for Independence Day celebrations. The festive footwear can also be worn all summer long.
