DIY Lace Up Pointy Toe FlatsJessica Hart
I have to say, my favorite shoes I own are my lace up sandals (which I’ve worn many times on my blog ). They’re a bit edgy yet trendy and completely still in style even after having them for a few years. Since I can’t wear these with every look I own, I fell in love wearing the lace up pointy toe flats option for trips to the grocery store and those causal days running errands around town. After spotting them in every store by various designers I knew I could easily create my own version with a pair of flats I already had at home. Here are the steps to DIY a pair for yourself:
Things you’ll need:
- a pair of pointy toe flats
- Leather cord
- a hot glue gun or E6000 ( I chose a hot glue gun and went over it with E6000 for extra strength)
Start by cutting your leather cord into 4 equal 1 1/2 inch strips.
Glue your leather cord ends together creating a loop.
Decide where you want to place each loop onto your shoe. I chose to use 4 pieces attaching 1 at the front, 2 on the sides, and 1 on the heel. Lace the rest of the leather cording through each loop starting with the front then through the sides and ending at the heel. Then begin lacing up and around your ankle.
