Fancy Nancy Craft Idea

I’m sure it is completely unsurprising that my girls love Fancy Nancy. Actually if you can show me a little girl between the ages of two and eight that *doesn’t* adore Nancy I will be far more shocked. While this book has had a steady slot in our bedtime story circuit for a while, it’s taken me too long to get around to making a fun, fancy project with my girls.

I saw white canvas shoes at Target recently and decided it was high time to get out the craft paint and ribbon and make some fantastic tennis shoes.

For this pair we free handed polka dots with mint green acrylic paint and a cotton swab. We swapped the laces that came with the shoes for a lush one-and-a-half-inch, double-faced, satin ribbon. We cut the ribbon about 12 inches longer than the laces that came with the shoes and taped both ends of the ribbon to make it easier to thread through the eyelets.

Beyond paint and ribbon, there are loads of ways to dress up your shoes — think rhinestones, pom poms, tassels, puffy paint, glitter. Anything fancy!
