DIY Tutorial: How to Kawaii-ify Your Winter Boots (Super Sweet ❤)

Hey guys 

It's getting colder outside, which means that most of you are either:

  1. Surrendering your impeccable fashion sense to Uggs in exchange for warmth
  1. Surrendering your last four paychecks to import footwear that is both cute and warm

Luckily for you, I'm here to let you know that there is in fact a third option >:)

On to the tutorial  o(^^o) (o^^)o

For this tutorial, you will need:
  • Fabric Paint
  • Fabric Glue
  • Craft Fur (I used two pre-packaged pieces of fur, but I'd recommend visiting a fabric store)
  • Two decorative centerpieces, such as bows or flowers

Start with a pair of boots no longer worthy of seeing the outdoors. This is what mine looked like after being washed, so it's safe to say that it was time for them to retire.

Using fabric paint, paint them in a shade of your choosing. If you make a mistake, use a wet q-tip or sponge to clean up the area.

Depending on the dimensions of your craft fur, this step may or may not be necessary. Fold fur in half.

Cut down the center. This was only necessary because my fur wasn't quite long enough to cover the circumference of my boots~

Using fabric glue, secure fur to the boot.

If you're left with a gap, cut a piece of craft fur equal to the length of the exposed area.

Use fabric glue to secure the smaller piece of fur. To ensure that the pieces blend seamlessly, make sure that the hair of each piece points in the same direction.

Repeat for your second shoe.

Time for bows! Use fabric glue to secure bows to craft fur.
Dry overnight.

 Enjoy *^^*
