I finally broke down and found a new pair of house shoes to replace my unbelievably cute Fossil ballet slippers that are only holding themselves together by hopes and prayers. I was on a mission to find both durable and cute house shoes, but instead I found that cute and durable don’t really exist together unless you’re willing to forfeit eating in order to pay for the ones that do have both qualities. Alas, I settled for Target… and then some cute ribbon and paint…
Things you’ll need:
- Choice of ribbon
- Cork topper
1. Use the chalk to map out where you’d like your pattern to be before you paint. If you want to do polka dots also, use the cork stopper dipped in a thin layer of paint to create nearly perfect circles. I chose to paint with a bronze color, and I also added a few extra touches to the back of the slippers (see below).
2. Use the chalk once again to placement mark the placement for your gromets.
3. Use scissors to create holes just a bit smaller than the size of your gromets. To be honest, cutting the holes was the hardest part for me because the slippers were so thick. It basically just takes a little elbow grease (if you have a secret for this, fill me in!).
4. Insert the gromets, and then string your ribbon through.
Total Cost: $15!
