Step 2

Cut ribbons to appropriate size and hot glue.


-Plain pair of sandals (I got this pair from Walmart)

-Pom Pom trim (Again, from Walmart)

-Hot glue gun


Step 3 

Continue steps 1 and 2 until your sandals are completely covered the way you'd like them to be. Ta-Da! Your sandals are complete!

Last Summer, pom pom sandals were all the rage. I saw them on everyone and everywhere and to be honest, I kind of wanted a pair too. Now that spring's started to roll around again, I've seen them pop up everywhere from to Asos to Nordstrom. One thing I'm not ready to commit to when it comes to these sandals is the price. Thirty bucks may not be a lot to drop on a pair of shoes, but sandals tend to wear out easier than other shoes and I didn't want to spend a ton on shoes that may just be a big fad. That's why I decided to make my own pair! The total cost of this DIY was about $10 and I had a lot of fun making it! The pair I made is slightly different in that they don't lace up like most pom pom sandals, but if you like the look of these shoes and DIYs aren't your thing, then you can buy a similar pair here. Scroll down for instructions (ps: this is probably my favorite and easiest DIY I've ever done!).

Step 1

Begin measuring the ribbons and placing them where you'd like on the sandals (I ended up not using the red because it didn't quite match).
