Family, Wine, Laughing and Pinterest are the few things that keep me sane (or insane depending on the day). If you are an overly busy, control freak with an amazing filter that needs laughter to make it through the day from wine to whine is your blog to frequent! I hope you enjoy my ramblings, and get lost in a story for a few (scarce) minutes everyday. XO Dee
In case you were unable to catch my tutorial yesterday at A Charming Twist, here it is one more time!
I love TOMS, BUT when you spend your day playing in sandboxes and muddy playgrounds it can be hard to keep your clean. So thankfully there’s a solution….DIY TOMS!!
-replica TOMS (I bought mine from Five Below for $5 )
- hot glue gun
First, you need to measure and cut the ribbon. You are just covering the heel portion of the shoe, so you do not need much.
Did you know, that in order to prevent your ribbon from fraying, you can burn the end of it with a lighter? You only need to do it for a second. You DON’T want the ribbon to catch the flame, just heat it enough to singe the ends.
I made little hearts to play off of the red in the trim (plus, it’s probably the simplest design to make).
Before you start, you should think about the heart placement, it’s easier to add then it is to subtract. Since you want it to look like an all over print try to keep everything as consistent as possible, and remember keep the hearts small!
Keep Painting, your almost done!!
