DIY Pom-Pom Sandals

Pom-poms can be found on many clothing items and accessories this season. I could not help but fall in love with this fun trend especially after finding a pair of sandals on Etsy.  The $100+ price tag  turned me off  and I didn’t purchase them. If there is a chance that any expensive item can be easily DIYed instead of bought, I prefer the DIY route. This particular project was not very expensive and could be done under one hour.  


Here’s what you will need

  • Gladiator style sandal or style of your choice
  • Pom-poms (I prefer the jewel toned ones)
  • Thread (preferably matching the colors you chose for the pom-poms or a neutral color matching the sandals)
  • Scissors (not pictured)
  • Needle (not pictured)

For this DIY  I decided to use large sized pom-poms. You are not limited and can use which ever size you prefer.

Step 1: Choose your pom-pom colours and visualize the placement.  I chose to work with 5 colours and placed them on the sandals first. This gave me a good idea of how I wanted the sandals to turn out at the end. 

Step 2: Sew the pom-poms on the laces of the sandals.  Try not to sew through the lace but instead wrap the thread around the lace.  Alternate between pom-pom colours and work your way up the laces.

Voila, here is the finished product!  
If you no longer love your pom-pom creation you can cut the tread and easily remove the pom-poms preserving your great pair of sandals.

Hope you enjoyed the post and were inspired to add a little fun into your shoe wardrobe.

Until Next Time
