Super Mario Duct Tape Shoes - Recycle Project

So I had these shoes that are totally worn out and was about to throw out when I decided to give the duct tape covered shoes project a try. I figured that if it didn't turn out right, it's not really a big loss.  Well, they turned out pretty darn cute, if I don't say so myself.

I used the Nintendo Super Mario duct tape that I had purchased for my little man's school folder cover.  Here's the shoes with one as an after and the other as the before.

I took the duct tape and pieced it around the shoes.

I trimmed it up with an exacto knife and here's the finished product.

Aren't they cute?

I think I'm going to make a matching duct tape hair bow and small purselet.  Maybe even a belt.  Possibilities are endless.

I love this!! I'm totally going to have to rip your idea off :) I bought this duct tape awhile ago but haven't found a reason to use it yet!
