What is a shoe last? A shoe last is the thing they make shoes on, like a reverse mould. Mainly they were wooden, but some are plastic. I love the old ones and use them as displays items. I have also altered some. Time to share.
Here is one my daughter did. She beaded the toe and put some beads on the side of the heel.
I did a few of these. I covered the toe in an old doily. Then I made a flower from fabric and bits and pieces and added that.
Here is an idea I found online. I haven’t tried this one yet. My shoe lasts are quite hard so I imaging make holes in them may not be easy.
Here is another idea I may try from Chipping With Charm.
This one is also a photo display. Sorry, I can’t remember where I found this.
…and this one has been painted. I should do this for my powder room as the color would match perfectly. This one has been given a little heel, I think they have used a cotton reel to do this. Great idea.
