  • Yarn
  • Scissors
  • Hole punch
  • Markers

  • Take an adult-sized shoe and trace the outline of the shoe onto the large piece of cardstock. Cut out the shape. You may have to widen the arches, depending on the shoe. (see photos)
  • Glue this rectangle to the center of the large cardstock shape. Allow the glue to dry. (see photos)
  • Wrap tape around the ends of the yarn so that it doesn't fray. Thread the yarn through the bottom hole on either side so that the very center of the yarn is in the center of the cardstock. Begin threading the yarn in an X pattern, switching the two ends of the yarn from side to side. It should look like a regular laced shoe. (see photos)
  • Decorate the shoe with markers and any desired decorations. Allow glue to dry completely, if necessary. (see photos)
