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
