Your dolls have all their supplies and such ready for back to school, but how about some cute, trendy shoes? Marie and her daughter of the Etsy store Florals & Prints, (they have a doll clothes/sewing blog too) are going to show us how to make “Toms” style shoes for your dolls using the ever popular duct (duck) tape!

How to make doll sized Toms from Duct Tape

Aren’t these just so cute? All you need is your favorite pattern of duck tape and either cork, cardboard or fun foam for the shoe base.

Duct tape Toms shoes for dolls

This simple design can be made with duct tape or fabric (for a more polished version see Liberty Jane for details) and you can make them in any color combination you wish.

So follow along with Marie’s daughter in her video tutorial to make the shoes. And of course, if you make them, please share with us at our Facebook page, Instagram (@dolldiaries) or by emailing me at!

I’m going to go make a pair right now – have fun making shoes for your dolls this afternoon!

Thank you Marie for sharing this great doll play idea!
