My husband Aaron was getting ready to donate a pair of black Converse high tops. He said that there was nothing wrong with them — he just didn’t need them, so I asked if I could use them as a practice template for my new Cricut Mini Press iron.

First they got a good bath and I cleaned the heck out of the soles. I purchased a collection of Haunted Mansion SVG files that included the hitchhiking ghosts and the hatbox ghost.

I ran them through the Cricut then used my new Mini Press to iron the ghosts on to the shoes. 

Before and after

I love this project because this was a pretty low effort way to bring back to life these shoes that had been lurking in the back of the closet. Aaron is thrilled.
