Step 1: Apply Duct Tape to Shoes
Apply horizontal strips of red duct tape until the pumps are completely covered.
Step 2: Measure and Cut Poster
Wrap the poster board around the shin, making sure it's not too tight. Mark at the biggest part of the leg (calf) and the ankle. Connect the markings by drawing a line with a ruler and marker. Cut out shape using scissors.
Step 3: Apply Duct Tape to the Poster
Apply vertical strips of red duct tape to the poster board until it's completely covered. Turn over the board, and fold down all the excess tape in the back of the poster board for a clean finish.
Step 4: Punch Holes for Lacing
Hole punch the poster board all along the edges on both sides of the board. Make sure there's an even amount of space between the punched holes on both sides.
Step 5: Draw and Cut
Draw a V shape on a scrap piece of the poster board with a ruler and permanent marker. Cut out the shape using scissors.
Step 6: Attach
Attach the V-shape to the top of the tape-covered board. Make sure the point of the V is facing up.
Step 7: Apply White Strips
Apply three vertical strips of white duct tape down the middle of the poster board and shoes.
Step 8: Insert Laces
Insert shoelaces into the punched holes, and tie in the back. Repeat all these steps for the other shoe. Tip: Wrap a small piece of white tape around the end of each side of the shoelaces to easily insert the ends into the punched holes.
