We started our Neon &； Nude series last week with the fun Neon &； Nude Nail Art Tutorial. Have you tried it yet？ This week we are sharing a quick and easy neonified makeover you can do to pretty much any pair of shoes. The tricky thing about painting the rubber on your shoes is keeping the paint on after a while. With a helpful little sealer (you might already have at home) it shouldn’；t be problem. I’；ve been wearing mine and they still look as good as new.
Gather these supplies and let’；s get started on the DIY Neon &； Nude Shoes tutorial after the jump…；cheap throw pillow covers
DIY Neon &； Nude Shoes
Grab a pair of shoes you want to makeover. I bought these at Kmart for $5.
Get neon acrylic paint and a paintbrush.
Tape around the edges of the shoe so that the paint doesn’；t get on the canvas. Take your time because this part helps so much when you’；re painting.
Start painting your first coat. You may need a thinner brush to paint the spots closest to the canvas.
After a few coats they should look like this! Let it dry.
Grab your Mod Podge and a foam brush. Brush it onto all the spots with neon and carefully avoid painting the canvas.
Let that dry and now they’；re ready to wear!

HAPPY 1ST BIRTHDAY PRUDENT BABY!!We can’t believe it’s been a year. We’ve had so much fun. So we thought, what better way to celebrate than… a trip to Mexico without our husbands and kids! And then our backup plan was…? a DIY on icing a birthday cake! Hmnaccent pillow case baby home and living, doesn’t seem like such a worthy replacement for that trip anymore. Regardless, if you are a mom, baking a cake has come up. And if you are more of the “DIY” type than the “swing-by-the-bakery” type, this little walk-though might come in handy. And if you are a professional, or just an awesome cake decorator, don’t laugh at my skills. I’m definitely just a home baker with a few lessons under my belt. But with these tips, you CAN ice a perfect cake, if you’re into that kind of thing.I’m more of a half-perfect kinda gal.
