DIY TASSEL HEELS // FUN & FANCY ANKLE STRAP SANDALS

ankle strap sandals heels with tassels
* This is an unbelievably easy DIY if you have the right tools and materials. It took me about ten minutes and I let them dry over night and BOOM… new shoes for the holidays or prom or Halloween or JUST FOR FUN!
I featured a bunch of cute shoe tassel DIYs by Honestly WTF a while ago and maybe this is what inspired me to create my own… BUT, I pulled these cute Jean-Michel Cazabat ankle strap sandals the other day from my closet -and as much as I love them, I don’t entirely like the two-toned color scheme and wanted to just upgrade them to something a little more fun. So I grabbed this vintage tassel trim I found at a thrift shop a few years ago and got to work.
I love the movement they have when I walk, though if you notice, the ankle strap on these particular heels sits below my ankle bone (which is generally very flattering on the leg) HOWEVER, this would also look super cute on an ankle strap heel that sits above the ankle bone… just an afterthought though. Anyway, let’s just get to it!

Here’s What You’ll Need…

* Ankle Strap Sandals
Tassel Trim
E6000 Adhesive
* Scissors, q-tip or tiny brush

Steps…

* First determine where you buckle your ankle straps around your leg or foot… Because you’re going to glue the tassel trim to the strap, you need to make sure you’ll be able to get them on and off without destroying your work and the shoe.
* Measure and cut your tassel trim to fit your ankle strap. Leave an extra 1/2″ at each end.

* Fold over your ends and glue them down. This will keep them from fraying.

* Using your q-tip, dab enough glue and spread it evenly along about 3″ of your ankle strap and set your trim in place. Continue and repeat the step above for the next 3″ and until you get to the end.

* Move your tassel trim around while your glue is still wet to set it in place.

How To Wear 1 Pair of Statement Shoes in 5 Different Ways

We’ve arrived at a point in time where wearing a piece of clothing or accessory more than once isn’t as head-turning. We purchased the pieces after all, so we do have to get our money’s worth. Basic pieces are on rotation almost always, and it’s quite the tendency to abandon other pieces that can be used over and over. And yes, we’re talking about the statement shoe that’s probably sitting somewhere in your closet, because you have no clue what to wear it with.
We totally see why it’s stored away: it can be intimidating to wear such an attention-grabbing piece on a mundane Tuesday out to the grocery. But are you really only going to pull your statement shoes out for glamorous events? Frankly, the only thing better than wearing your statement shoes with an outfit is wearing them with five. So whether to a party or the grocery, see how you can wear one pair of statement shoes five different ways below, as taught to us by this fashion blogger!

1. Ruffled Dress + Small Bag + Statement Shoes

DIY FAUX FUR BOOT STUFFERS

diy boot shapers, boot shaper, diy boot stuffers
Let me first start by saying that this may be one of my all-time favorite DIYs EVER… and I think my best DIYs come from pure necessity and/or a real desire to have something fabulous that I can’t find elsewhere. For instance, I can NEVER find really great boot shapers… thus, some of my boots are lying flat in their original boxes & others are standing with their original paper boards & tissue paper that came with them {very unchic!}. Really, when it comes down to it, I don’t want to spend money on boot shapers but I also don’t want to look in my closet and see a bunch of wine bottles or plastic bottles sticking out of my shoes. So this is my solution… and as soon as I finish more SmartWater bottles, I’ll be making sets for all my boots in my closet.
NOTE: Though this DIY is not complicated, there are a lot of steps.

What You’ll Need…

* SmartWater bottles {two 33.8 fl.oz.bottles per each boot stay}
* Scissors
Duct Tape
* Hot Glue Gun {I started with Mod Podge – big mistake! Huge.}
* Short Pile… Faux fur {or another thick fabric or textile}
* Ribbon {+ a lighter}
* Tassels

Steps…

* Cut the tops off of your bottles {stab and cut around carefully}
* Allow them to dry COMPLETELY {upside down in the warm sun is quick!}
* Cut 4 slits evenly around the tops of your bottles.
* Insert one bottle into the other… adjust for height {make some taller than others but match your “pairs” in height}
* Duct tape them together. I overlapped mine and went about 6″ wide to make my bottles sturdier.

Optional but Special…

* Cut off about a foot of duct tape… Cut a slit in the center… Cut a piece of ribbon about 6″ or longer and singe the ends with your lighter…
* Slip your ribbon through the slit in the tape creating a loop on the unsticky side… slide your tassel through the center of your ribbon loop… Slip the tassel loop through the ribbon and tie the ribbon in a double knot… press your knotted ribbon down onto the tape to secure it in place.
* At the center of each of the ends of ONE side of your bottles, tape down and secure sides.
* Roll your fabric around the bottle to measure it and cut {cut larger than you need}
* Use your bottle base as a template, draw & cut out two circles & cut a slit in the center of each.
* Pull your tassel & ribbon loop through the center slit & hot glue your fur circle to the bottle and over the edges {if it’s a little big that’s okay}.
* Beginning at the furry top edge, carefully hot glue gun the top of your fabric around the bottle, edging it against the fur circle top seamlessly so there is no space in between.
* Straighten out your fur and hot glue gun the starting side all the way down your bottle… then do the opposite side only glueing up to the edge, do not overlap.
* Trim off your excess material {around the bottom as well, leaving about 1/2″ at the base}
TIP: if you want a “finished” seam along the side of your shaper after you cut off the excess, carefully apply more hot glue to the small areas in between the edges and tuck your edge under a bit while simultaneously glueing it down.
* Apply hot glue to the edge and bottom then pinch your left-over fabric and press it down and secure it to the edge & bottom. Cut a small circle, apply glue to the center and add your final bit of fur to finish off the bottom.

Voila!
