DIY | Easy Artisanal Sandals

Wednesday, April 22


People...I've had these DIY Embroidered Yarn Bracelet Sandals in my head for nearly a year (!!) and I finally found the perfect materials to put it together! You probably think I'm a bit crazy, but seriously, I've been dying to make these! I've had the fortune to travel many places around the world and I made it a tradition of mine to collect yarn bracelets from each country as a keepsake. When I was younger, I used to wear all the bracelets and they became excellent conversation starters! Now that I'm living the professional life, I had to put them aside but still like to memorialize them in some way. The best part about these sandals is that they can be meaningful if you'd like them to be!


It's quite common to make Yarn Friendship Bracelets, so you could double up with your besties and make these sandals as an alternative way to strut your awesome friendship wherever you go. Or, how about about a fun DIY Mother's day gift that you make together?! The options are endless. Best part, they take less than 15 minutes to put together. Here are the deets! 


What you'll need:
-Plain sandals with strap across the front/top (bought mine at Forever 21 for $7!! Here's a similar style online)
-Yarn bracelets (bought mine at Michaels, but also found some from a vendor at a street fair!)
-Hot glue gun or Permanent bonding glue
-Scissors


Instructions:
1. Prepare your bracelets! The ones I purchased cameattached to a pleather backing, so I used scissors to cut it off. If you are using the traditional yarn bracelets, you will have to trim off the ties on the nds so it is a straight, rectangular piece, kind of like a ribbon.
2. Since the yarn will thread apart after cutting the ends, apply a thin amount of glue to the back, inside of the bracelet along one edge and fold the end over just enough so it it sticks down but doesn't shorten the bracelet too much. I folded mine over about 1/4 of an inch.
3. Repeat step #2 on other side of the yarn bracelet.
4. Using the hot glue gun, apply glue to the first half of the sandal strap using a zig-zag pattern. Carefully apply the yarn bracelet, gently pressing as you move up and across the strap.
5. Glue the sedcond half of the strap and complete attaching the braacelet to it. 
6. Repeat steps #4 and #5 on the second sandal.


That's it folks! Super easy and straightforward way to really create a unique accessory for the summer adventures, for your mom, for your besties, or just for your own fabulous self! Let me know what you think or if you try it out! Also, the beautiful embroidered blanket featured in these shots is from Urban Outfitters!
