DIY: Tribal Inspired Sandals

I was on the search for a new pair of flat sandals the other day. All the designs that caught my eye had some kind of decorative embellishment, that quite frankly I could have done myself and pay a fraction of the price. Enter this easy DIY. It is not a quick one, but watching TV shows on my DVR helped the time fly by. Here are the steps...
{materials: an old pair of sandals, embroidery floss, super glue, scissor (not pictured)}
{tie a small knot with the first color of embroidery floss}
{glue the knot to the sandal}
{wind around the sandal - knotting each new color to the next}
{end result}


  1. I totally need to do this to my new Steve Madden sandals since they have no wrapping on them and they cut in between my toes!

  2. Hi! Loved this tutorial so I made my own inspired version, please check it out here: and tell me what you think.
