Make Your Own Map Shoes

Here's a project for the travel lovers!

1.  You'll need a pair of canvas shoes, a large map or atlas, Mod Podge, a paintbrush, and some newspaper (optional).

2.  To keep the shape of your shoes, stuff them with newspaper.  Brush some Mod Podge onto one of your shoes.  Concentrate on small areas at a time (Mod Podge dries quickly).

3.  Tear apart small pieces of your map and place it on the freshly glued area.  Continuously add more Mod Podge on the shoe to glue and seal the map pieces.  Repeat this step until both shoes are covered.

4.  Let the Mod Podge dry for at least an hour, then your new shoes are ready to wear!  Your shoes might be a little crunchy sounding for the first few wears.
