Summery Sandals



The summer weather is definitely here in California, so I was excited to break out my customized Dr. Scholl's this weekend!

I painted them last summer after watching this segment on "Martha." They were really easy to make and I get lots of compliments on them. Plus, they're super-comfortable.

I had a hard time finding the plain Dr. Scholl's in any local stores, so I ended up ordering them online here.

If anyone else has made these, I'd love to hear what color combos/patterns you came up with!

I LOVE Martha, I LOVE your summer sandals (which I will be buying and painting my own, since I live in Sunny South Florida and I only wear those kinds of footwear whenever possible. Thanks for having this great blog. I will be adding your link to my favorite blogs!

Awesome idea! I actually have three pairs of these sandals (red, pink, and black) and I got them all at the thrift store. My mom wore these when I was a kid and I have a certain fondness for them.

I can't wait to try this craft! Thanks!

Hi Ashley
I'm a great fan of scholl sandals too but you can't get them anymore here in Holland, Europe.

Do you have more photos of your painted Scholls so that I can see the details and teh footbed?(By the way the buckle of the painted scholls is not properly closed!)





Look forward to your answer



Kind regards

Hi there --

For anyone who is still checking in here, you can get a detailed tutorial of how to paint the stripes by clicking on the link to Martha's site that I provided in the initial post. Once you're there, click the "Watch Video" link, which is imbedded on the picture of Martha's sandals.

And OOOPS! Guess my buckle slipped a little bit when I took the photo.
