Jersey Girl, Texan Heart: Lace Up Pom Pom Sandals DIY-LINKUP WITH COHOST

Dress:  Cavender's currently on sale (similar also here and here) // Sandals:  GoJane // Designer Version of the Sandals // Dolce & Gabbana Version of the Sandals

Alright so in yesterday’s post I did say that I had another DIY for y’all this week.  I decided that for today’s Save/Splurge, I’d show you how to save and make something yourself.  There’s this trend I’ve been seeing with these pom pom sandals that are $225+ and to be honest, for something this trendy, even though it’s adorable I just can’t bring myself to spend that kind of money.  With that being said I decided to stop over at Michael’s, grab some supplies, then order these sandals from Go Jane for $13.30.  They don’t have the white ones anymore but they have plenty of colors.  I also bought some charms, tassels, and pom poms from Michael’s. 

Step 1:  Gather your Materials

Make sure you have your lace up sandal of your choosing.  Grab some pom poms, tassels, and charms along with a hot glue gun.  Make sure you have space to work with, this will get messy and you have a lot of material everywhere.

Step 2:  Start with the bottom

Start with the bottom part of the sandal.  By this I mean where your foot actually goes, not the lace up part.  Glue pom poms, tassels, or add charms as you like.  You don’t have to do it the same way I did, this is just to show you how I made these.  Make sure before you glue pieces you put the sandals on your feet so that you can make sure the laces aren’t too tight and everything is in the right place.  Then take them off and decorate away!

Step 3:  Laces

Here is where the annoying part came in for me.  I would lace the sandals and put charms where I wanted them.  I didn’t glue these on, I added the charms and tassels with jewelry rings because in case I want to lace it different I can adjust the laces.  Make sure to do this after the bottom half of the sandal is dry so that you don’t ruin them since you will have to put the sandals on while you do this portion.  Make sure when you take the sandals off you tie the laces together so none of the charms fall off.

Alright, so this was another quick DIY for a really trendy piece this season.  I’ve seriously seen tassels and pom poms on everything, and why pay all of this money when you can just make your own for way less?  Don’t get me wrong the designer ones are super adorable but like I said in the beginning some of us don’t have the luxury of being able to spend money like that on shoes.  I’ll link up some designer items below on top of some lower end items if you’d like to buy these pieces and make them on your own.  Good luck and if you do make them tag me on Instagram so I can see it!
