My toddler has a favorite pair of shoes – his sister’s too small pink crocs. He has crocs in black that are his, but they’re a little snug, and the pink ones are a little big so he can put them on himself. Which he does. Anytime we go anywhere, there he appears, wearing the pink crocs. Finally I thought enough was enough and I spray-painted them. They turned out great and he loved them. But now, a few weeks have past, and the paint is starting to flake off – good thing he just got a pair of black crocs handed down from a cousin (they heard of him wearing pink crocs and couldn’t let that happen!)
Another fun way to spruce up hand-me-downs – iron on jewels. These jeans actually aren’t hand-me-downs, but still. Just iron on jewels. My daughter LOVED this project and these are now her favorite jeans since she helped make them.
My kids live in hand-me-downs and clothes from garage sales. Sprucing things up makes them our own. Any other ideas on Hand-me-down Spruce-Ups??

Love this! Never would have thought to spray paint crocs! The embellished jeans are darling too! Love that they are personalized! What better way to make a little one feel good about wearing a hand me down! Did a couple updates to some of our hand me downs!
These were easy and fun!
These took no time at all!
