This was a pair of high heels that I never wore because of scuffs and damage on the heels. After some shoe polish, the toes were perfect, so I left them as-is. It took 2 6x6 sheets of origami paper to cover both heels, and I put on 6 coats of mod podge.

I love them! I have already started decoupaging some other shoes with the same problem, to be posted soon.

Wow!!! What a great idea.  I would do that on "new" shoes, if I wore something other than sneakers and slippers.  (Oh the woes of the SAHM!!).  Love the paper.  Great job.

Thanks for the nice comments, everybody! I should give credit where due- there are a lot of great posts in this thread about decoupaging shoes, but this one was especially inspiring:
