How to make funny feet


Step 1 Step one
Cut a foot hole in the top of each box, as shown – you might need a grown up to help with this bit.

Step 2 Step two
Stick the top of each box down using a few pieces of sticky tape – again, you might need a grown up to help with this bit.

Step 3 Step three
Apply one coat of Resene Quick Dry to the top and sides of each box and allow to dry.

Step 4 Step four
Paint the top and sides of each box with one coat of Resene Get Reddy. Once this is dry, apply a second coat and allow this to also dry.

Step 5 Step five
Paint a border around each of the holes, as shown, using Resene Lochmara.

Step 6 Step six
Paint on the laces using Resene Kermit.

Step 7 Step seven
Paint lines to mark out the heels and the sole edges, as shown, using Resene Black. Now allow all the paint colours to dry.

Step 8 Step eight
Paint the bottom of each heel and the sole edges with Resene Dizzy Lizzy and allow the paint to dry thoroughly. Now get walking!
