Decorate and Upcycle Your Shoes Sweetly

This is a pair of old shoes I had lying around.. I felt they were a bit boring so I rarely wear them. hehe… I think a lot of people have a similar problem, there are always something we don’t want to wear / use, but we are reluctant to throw it away or be wasteful. It is a good idea to give them a new birth with alterations and decoration!

All we need to snazz up these shoes is some lace, two heart-shape cabochons, and some pearls.

1.

First, wrap the heart-shape cabochons with some lace and sew it tight at the back.

2.

Then, string up the pearls and sew them around the cabochons.

Sew some pearls on the ribbon (or shoe!) randomly.

    That is one brilliant idea!!!
    I would add that on other shoes, you could use earring clips as a deco too.
