Up-Cycled Valentine Shoes: How You Can Make Some Too. Hello friends. How are you today?

So I am loving my newly up-cycled/re-fashioned Valentine shoes. Polka dots, sparkly heels and heart shapes all over. 

What better thing to do with a boring old pair of shoes? Because I love a spot of polka dots.

I also gave this pair of shoes a makeover too: Up-cycled Valentine Shoes: Give Your Shoes Some Heart.

All of my favourite shoes things together!! And my new and exciting shoes was re fashioned from a pair of old shoes.

Until now!!

Old shoes with lots of marks on.
