DIY Colorblock NEON Toms

Y'all saw my post about going stir crazy with a sick toddler.. well today my bubbies was off and I got to go out a bit in the sunshine and do a fun project! I have been dying for some neon TOMS but can not find any, so I decided to make my own. I had a few fun ideas, but decided that in the end it , simple was better! 
I bought a pair of plain canvas TOMS at Whole foods and some Neon fabric paint from Michaels and went to painting... 

Not gonna lie... I LOVE Them! 

I only did one coat because I think they looked good just the way they were. The neon paint I bought had some shimmer to it that I was unaware of but I ended up loving it! 

 I realize neon is not for everyone but if you are interested here is the paint I bought :

Materials List:
- Canvas TOMS ( Approx $44)
- Fabric Paint Brush $3
- Tulip Fabric Paint. $2 
(The small bottles will be plenty for one pair of shoes. I bought the big bottle and learned the hard way)
- Scotchguard ( for protection once you are done painting. I was worried about the white part staying white when I wear them)

Weeks ago I ordered a pair of Tom's Leopard Ballet Flats ( like the DAY they came out) because they were so cute and I love them but they are too big! I have tried everything to get them to fit and no luck. They are sold out in every size now so I can't exchange them. If any of you want to buy them at cost, holla! Otherwise, I will list them on ebay marked up! ha
