I made these for aisy in the Mini 13 Days of Halloween swap. I've never done anything like it before but I got inspired by her love of Ouija boards and some other decorated shoes on pinterest.

I bought a simple pair of black faux leather flats and printed out some various Ouija board images on my laser printer on regular printer paper and used Modge Podge High Gloss and just started laying pieces down. I was originally going to overlap and cover the whole shoe, but I wound up liking how it looked so I just repeated the same pattern on both shoes.

I did several layers of Modge Podge, covering a shoe, letting it dry, then going back over. I used a standard foam craft brush.

I was so happy with how they came out! Grin

*arm thrust in air*  Yes. Yes, what curious said! Me, too!

I'm so happy they received their own post. Well deserved.
