I don’t know about you, but I’m full on obsessed with patches and pins. I can not tell you how many pins I’ve collected thus far, but stay tuned for a special pin-tastic post coming up tomorrow. Since I had all these amazing patches lying around, I knew I had to do something fun to showcase my #patchgame is strong. I had these two pairs of pastel sneakers that I got a month ago from Forever 21 and immediately knew I had to put some patches on them. I call them my Easy DIY #PatchGame Sneakers! I’m from the east coast, so I say sneakers. I know some people call them tennis shoes, but whatever! They’re sneakers dang it! They allow me to showcase my patch love with every step I take. You can show your patch obsession as well by making your own as well.
Here is what you’ll need to make your own dolled up Patch sneakers.
- The Cutest Cordless Glue Gun Ever and glue sticks.
- These Sneakers From Forever 21 in any color.
- A variety of patches from Chris Uphues, Little Arrow Shop, These Are Things, Coucou Suzette, Wildflower + Co, Fenyx Design Shop, Winks For Days, Treat YoSelf Motel, and GimmeFlair! These are just some of my top favorite places to buy patches.
There are so many amazing patch makers on Etsy and on the net! I have million that I love. I mean how cute are these patches folks?! Too cute!
I have ridiculously small feet, so I have to use the smaller patches. If you have bigger feet you can use bigger patches. Essentially the bigger the sneaker size, the bigger the patches can be and the more patches you can fit on your sneakers.
First you pick out your patches. You then take your hot glue gun and place some glue onto the shoe and the back of the patch.
You have to work fast as the hot glue will harden quickly. You press down on your patches so they take the shape of the shoe and stick to the shoe.
You can add a little hot glue to the edges of the patches if they are still sticking up on the sides. Press down on the sides to make sure the patches are pressed flat on the sneakers.
I did my favorite heart eyes emoji and the kiss lips on one pair of sneakers. I’m obsessed with them!
And I used my mini Chris Uphues patches that I got over the Valentine’s Day weekend on one of my pink sneakers.
The other sneaker has my girl gang patch from Little Arrow Shop! I call these my girl gang sneakers. There is a gang of cuteness on the left and my girl gang wording patch on the right.
That’s all you have to do to make some super cute colorful patch decorated sneakers. Super simple right? The glue gun is your friend folks!
You can easily pair these awesome #PatchGame DIY Sneakers with these super cute patch jogger pants!
I think they are a fashion match made in heaven.
I’m going to live in these sneakers through out Spring and Summer!
I hope you enjoy making these cute patch sneakers as much as I do!
