It seems like everywhere I look nowadays, all I see are DIY shoes. Shoes have definitely become one of the most popular surfaces to craft on. I am constantly amazed to see how creative and crafty people can get with them. One that recently caught my eye were these DIY painted Toms. A girl named Lauren created these shoes. You can check out her craft blog, Lauren Acklin, here. As you can see from the before picture, these shoes are very basic and simple. All white, that’s what you get, until this designer added some Apple Barrel paint to them. I love these shoes, and how they were designed. I would use the word, awesome, to describe how fabulous these Toms are. To learn how Lauren made these click here.

Happy Friday . It is the weekend and we here at Paint Me Plaid would like to give you a craft project to work on. In every home there is a rug, and usually most rugs aren’t very decorative. A door mat, or bathroom mat typically aren’t you most chic looking rugs. Well that can change very quickly with a stencil, and some Martha Stewart craft paint. Here is a great example of how you can spruce up a boring rug. We found this rug on a blog called, Living with Lindsay. To see how she made this click here. Have you ever used craft paint on a rug or other household item?

The reindeer is one of the most iconic holiday figures. I don’t know what it is about them, but every time I see a reindeer I can’t help but to smile. That’s exactly what I did when I first saw these adorable reindeer holiday coasters. These coasters were made by one of our craft blogger friends, Myra. Her blog is called, My Blessed Life. Myra created these holiday coasters using products from the new Martha Stewart craft line. These coasters are a great homemade gift.

Signs are one of the most popular kinds of crafts that people tend to make. When you create a sign you can be as creative as you like. You can make a sign that is small, or one that covers an entire wall. Take for instance this sign from one of our favorite craft blogs, Tatertots and Jello. This sign was created using stencils and paints from the Martha Stewart craft line, available at Michaels. Would you like to re-create this project?

Wood frames are one of the most popular surfaces to craft with. Frames are always needed, regardless of the time of year. We all love storing our pictures in some unique frame design. Instead of buying a unique frame, why not try creating your own. This is exactly what Jennie did over at Craft-O-Maniac. Jennie created this chic stenciled frame, using some of Plaid’s new stencils from our Easy to Paint Line. Click here to see the before and after pictures, and learn how to make your own chic stenciled frame.

Recycled and rehabbed projects are some of my favorite. I love to see someone take something that was once drab to fab. I came across this cool Mod Podge chair, that was made by Vivienne from the V Spot. I love this! This is such a unique and creative project. Vivienne patched up the damaged areas of the chair with spackle, then sanded, primed, and painted the edges. She used Mod Podge to cover the slats with a green, geometric print fabric.
