Ok, so piggy-backing off of Monday’s post, I’m sharing my no sew ribbon tie heels DIY today. Its actually so simple, you will be amazed and will literally want to do this with all your shoes.
You will need:
About 2 yards of 3/4 in. ribbon ( depending on how big you want your bows to be )
1 | Start with about a yard of fabric for each foot ( unless you want your bows bigger, then you would want the ribbon to be longer.
2 | Place your heel right in the middle of the ribbon.
3 | Take the ribbon ends and cross them across the top of your foot.
4 | Then wrap the ends around your ankle, with both ends going behind your foot.
5 | Now, you can either wrap the end around your ankle again, or you can just tie in a bow behind your ankle. This is where the length comes in. You can make your bows as big or as small as you want.
6 | Now slip you foot inside your shoes and you’re ready to go! Seriously, you won’t even feel the ribbon under your heel.
This is such an easy trick for updating or embellishing shoes without making a full committal. And since its a no sew ribbon tie, you can use the ribbon for so many other things! You can also use this trick for flats, slide ons and even with tennis shoes ( tutorial for this coming soon! ).
So what are you waiting for? Go out this weekend and jazz up some of your shoes!
