Dyeing your old wedding shoes

OK- I know this isn't stamp or scrapbook related, but it is crafty! Did you know you can dye those satin type shoes at home with coffee!?!? No joke. I have my wedding shoes from two years ago, gorgeous, white, but I have only worn them once. Now I am in a wedding and I don't want to spend $$ on a pair of ivory shoes I will wear once. So I dyed them with coffee!

How does it work- easy.
  1. Brew some strong coffee
  2. Apply coffee to shoe with a sponge
  3. let dry
  4. repeat steps 1-3 for darker shades

I only did one layer and got ivory shoes. But YOU can do varying shades of brown if you want.

:) I LOVE being resourceful!
