Crochet Shoes-DIY


It is officially warm weather here and since Dahlia has so many dresses we are planning on her wearing, she needs shoes! So I turned her holiday silver shoes into summer crochet shoes, see the tutorial below:



Things I used:
Shoes
Crochet
Ribbon
Spray paint
Easy tack
Scissors



First thing was to remove the bow which was super cute (sad face).



Then I painted the shoes. If you are going to try this it’s important to cover the inside so the paint doesn’t go in and I also recommend to paint them in an open area (spray can get messy).


While the paint dried I cut the crochet pieces for the front of the shoes, then when the shoes were dried (I waited till the next day) but it should only take about a couple of hours, I applied the easy tack to only the front of the shoes. Then put the crochet pieces on top, adjusting accordingly and trimming the crochet as needed.


Final step was to apply the ribbon on top which I had already cut to fit across the front of the shoe. You can add more easy tack if necessary at this point.  



 Then the shoes were done! From being a Holiday pair of shoes to a new Summer Crochet look…Dahlia will be rocking these this weekend!
