How to Decorate Free Slippers

If you're having a really good (fancy) vacation, someone, at some point, is going to give you free, white slippers. You might get a pair while you're luxuriating at a spa, you might find some waiting in your swanky hotel or you might be given a less fluffy pair after you've gotten a fancy pedicure. Or maybe you just buy yourself a clearance rack pair of white slippers at Macys and pretend that you've been on a fancy vacation (guilty). The common theme is, they're always white. *Yawn.*

Check out how I jazzed up the pair of plain white slippers I received while I was out of town earlier this week. I do work for Rit Dye so you know I can't be content with just plain, old white, right? It's as easy as using a cosmetic sponge to color the slippers in any hue that you like. The only crafty curve-ball I added to this project was using Elmer's blue gel glue to act as a resist to the dye. Put the glue wherever you don't want dye and they sky is the limit on design options. I went for my go-to fave: polka dots.

P.S. You can always peek at more of my Rit Dye work via my Rit Studio at: http://www.ritstudio.com/author/angeladaniels/

P.P.S. You can buy Rit Dye in a variety of colors and the Elmer's gel glue at your local Walmart, Michaels or Joann Stores.
