Transform a pair of worn out shoes into a STATEMENT pair of shoes you will love to wear!
I shared this project very quickly on my TV segment for Studio 5 but didn’t get to my favorite pair – the chevron wedges – because we ran out of time. Here is a bit of a step by step so you can create a fun pair too!
A pair of sandals, high heels, wedges, etc
Step 1: Drape your fabric over your shoes and cut away the excess. If you are working with a pair similar to these cut down the center so you can wrap the inside and outside.
Step 2: Apply some Mod Podge to the top of the shoe to place your fabric down. This will help to hold it into place to start.
Step 3: Continue to glue, cut and wrap the fabric applying the Mod Podge to the shoe and on top of the fabric.
Let them dry completely and they are ready to wear!
Same idea as above but I started with a striped fabric that I cut into 1″ wide strips. I started on the widest or thickest part of the wedge. Apply some Mod Podge and smooth out a few strips.
Apply Mod Podge over the top to keep the fabric in place and from fraying. Then trim the fabric from the top and the bottom .
Repeat down the entire length of the shoe and around until it is completely covered!
I found it was helpful on this particular pair to apply some Mod Podge on top of the fabric and run my fingernail along the edge where it needed to be cut. This made a line in the glue that I could cut along to match the edge perfectly!
Let dry and wear!!! You shoes are sure to get noticed!
I will be hopping around to the linky parties HERE this week!
