I heart this little DIY. It’s perfect for us frugalistas who can’t go out and buy a new pair of shoes for every outfit. The best part of this version? It isn’t permanent. No sewing. No glue. Just safety pins and a few minutes.
What you need:
- a pair of flip flops or sandals
- 8 small safety pins
- ribbon or 1-inch fabric strips
Wrap the ribbon or fabric strips around each strap.
Pin the fabric or ribbon to itself inside so it doesn’t show. (Use scissors to snip any loose threads from fabric strips, if that’s what you use.) This is a great opportunity to upcycle some old fabric too.
You can change the colors to match the season, an outfit, whatever presents itself. Yay for easy and versatile projects!
