Decorate your old pointe shoes! Use a light coat of spray paint for the base color (Avoid getting any on the ribbons as they will harden.) Then add designs with permanent markers. If you want a more "professional" look, stuff the inside of the shoes with paper towels to keep them from getting sprayed on the inside and cover the leather portion so that it stays its original color. Hang them in your room as decorations or use them for pictures!
