My friend Paulette asked me to decorate a pair of shoes.  She is using different shoes for table decorations at a golf tournament. 

She gave me an old pair of men's golf shoes for the project.



At first, I planned to decoupage them with vintage ads.  Then, I decided I would use vintage food advertising, and copies of S&H green stamps.  While I was trying to figure out the best way to do this, I thought, "This would be easier if they weren't golf shoes."  Then it hit me.  I shouldn't fight the golf shoes, and try to turn them into something they aren't.  I should make golf shoes.





I started by decoupaging the greens and sand traps to the shoes.  I found sand scrapbook paper at Hobby Lobby.



I was going to cover everything else with the moss, but I realized that I should cover the shoes with green paint.  The white of the shoes was visible underneath the moss.  So, I painted everything else green.  If I were to do it again, I would paint the entire shoe first, then decoupage, then glue on the moss.


I drilled holes for the wooden skewer pins.  The shoes are very hard with the leather and three coats of Mod Podge.




My daughter said I made the little course too difficult by putting the water hazard in the sand trap.  I think the course is a little too hilly myself.

Thanks for reading my blog.
