    Hey Guys! Today I am going to be painting and customizing a pair of my white vans. Shoes are such a fun item to paint, and I have so many ideas for ways to decorate these. I hope I give you some inspiration for a fun painting project! I love making custom shoes because you can really put your own style on them and make them personal to you (even if you never actually wear them lol). This is always such a cool, creative and easy activity to do if you're bored or need to get over artist's block. You can even use this technique to upcycle some old shoes!


    ___________WELCOME TO MY CHANNEL__________

    Hey! my name is Moriah (pronounced muh-rye-yuh 😂 ) and this is my channel....obviously. I'm 26 and like doing anything creative...and being snarky.....just a lil. I make a lot of decorating, painting and general art videos here. I'm obsessed with editing and adding lil bits to my videos, so if that's not your thing....oof you may hate this haha. I paint on squishies, thrift store finds, and other random things I pick up. I also love to draw, but don't expect anything too skilled, I'm not the best at that haha. You will also find occasional crafting/testing crafting kits on my channel which are always a hot mess. And even some baking (REALLY bad at that, but it's fun to try LOL).

    Squishy Makeovers: Fixing and decorating used squishies sent from my viewers
    Thrift Store Makeovers: Fixing and decorating stuff I find at thrift stores/yard sales

    Hey Moriah! I’ve been noticing some video ideas in your comments so I decided to write some of them here to make it easier for you in case you wanted to do some

  • Skyler Maxwell

    it’s really refreshing that moriah hasn’t changed her video/art style, because all of the other youtubers i loved a few years ago have completely changed and moriah is definitely like growing as a person but not changing herself

  • Biscuit_Honey

    Moriah: so there’s 6 shoes

  • Aninmations

    “I always have 10 million things on my to-do list. That’s an exaggeration. 10 thousand. Just 10 thousand.”

  • Amelie Alexandre

    Moriah should make a "yearbook" with all her squishy characters in it

  • •Semsha•

    She is the art teacher we wished we had

  • Samarpita Mohapatra

    At the end of the year Moriah should make a yearbook with everything she has done or made and the seniors should be the old ones and the juniors should be the recent and the newcomers should be the most recent the mosttt I would love it and at the end of the book there should be a page where it has a big ME(her enitial with that heart 💓)

  • Claire Saunders

    I feel like in a lot of vids, Moriah is always looking for something to are 3 ideas......A ukulele, a basket ball and RUBBER DUCKS!!!

  • JELLY 𝑭𝒐𝒖𝒓

    Moriah should make a “yearbook” with all her characters in it

  • Jaime Kane

    I love moriah! She is so positive and I love how she brings happiness to everything she does!

  • Hannah Green

    Moriah’s art and personality always cheers me up😁

  • Jenni Beckett

    It would be so cool if Vans got together with Moriah and released a series of shoes with her designs that could be bought and worn by her fans. Also be awesome if she shipped to AUS, I have a niece (also me) who would love to own some of Moriah’s merch. 🌈😊👍🏻

  • Lillie.causewhynot?

    You should customize the boxes to match the shoes inside, i would honestly watch that 😌

  • Scout Garber

    I love Moriah so much, she is so confident and passionate about her job. She entertains me even on the worst days because she is so funny and her editing skills are awesome.

  • Songbird 214

    Hey, Moriah. So I've been thinking about painting shoes as well, and I figured that since Vans are just solid canvas, it would be the easiest shoe to start out with, and I was wondering exactly what paints you were using, because it looks like the leather paint you used in one of your thrift store makeovers, and I was just wondering what it was so I didn't use the wrong stuff. Thanks!



  • Lauren Gibbs

    I saw her paint the first shoe red, realized there were six shoes and I'm like..."Yup she's doing rainbow! But don't worry I'm not tired of it!" 😂

  • Arty Crafty Artha

    It would be cute and cool to customize a normal cotton tote bag with all these cute characters🥰
