Nothing gives us greater craft-joy then upgrading simple basics. Today we tried out three simple techniques to give your girl (or your) flats a little extra something. We snagged these at H&M, but Joe Fresh has some perfect ones here, too. Here’s what you’ll do:
DIPPED // For the asymmetrical gold dipped flats, all you need is painter’s tape and gold spray paint! Tape of your desired design and then cover the rest of the shoe with paper towel to avoid getting any over-spray. Let each coat dry, we only needed two, and then remove the tape! Easy, right?
TASSELED // We found this simple metallic gold cording at our local craft store. There are lots of techniques for making tassels, but we created an even easier way! Cut 5-6 strips of cording and then using a glue gun you’ll dot each one, one at a time, right in the middle. Then layer each piece of cord on top of one another, creating this sunburst shape. Then fold all the pieces down and wrap with the last piece of cording, glueing it in place. Then super glue the tassel in place on the shoe and you’re done!
So do you have a favorite? If you make these (or any of our other crafts) tag #SFprojects so we can check it out and share with everyone!
