It’s time to pack away the boots and let your piggies breathe! Warm weather calls for sandals and flats galore, and one of the hottest shoes trends to hop on this season are lace up flats. This elegant choice of footwear didn’t surface just yesterday, but its popularity only continues to grow. Popular brands that have jumped on this style include Christian Louboutin and Aquazurra. While many of us would love to own a pair of these brand name babies, they don’t come cheap!
Here is a super simple 3-Step DIY project to keep you in style and your wallet alive!
- Pointed Flats (leather or PU is fine).
- A multi hole punch tool
- Cord matching your flats
- Chalk or pen
1. Mark where you want your holes to go on the flats, we did one in the middle and two in each side. Do this for both pairs and make sure they’re symmetrical.
2. Use your hole punch to remove a small circle of the fabric or leather where you’ve marked.
3. Cut a piece of twine, ours was 2 metres (2.2 yards), and thread your cord through to lace up your flats.
Forget breaking the bank and make your own elegant pair of lace up pointed flats right at home!
