Kick Up Your Fall Fashion with DIY Belted Boots
It’s time for a reality check folks. Fall is here and, though SF is all about Indian summer, the flip flops will soon need to be exchanged for your favorite fall boots. If you’re like us, you’ve got one or two pairs of boots that gets you through the entirety of autumn. Though they’re still comfy now, they’re looking pretty grungy and could use a stylish update. All you need is a few belts, glue and scissors to make our very own pair of edgy boho belted boots.
– old tall or mid-height boots or cowboy boots
– 3 belts
– assorted trim
– hot glue
First thing to do, as always, is to get all of your materials together.
Next thing is to fold those boots! We found these old black cowboy boots at a local thrift shop. The older the boot, the better. Worn out boots are easier to fold over and maneuver when you’re wanting to add on a little belted bling.
Since we like our crazy looks on the symmetrical side, we cut each of our belts in half. We used 3 belts, 1 length of lace trim, 1 length of fuzzy trim, and a bit of leather rope. You can use just about everything but the kitchen sink – just be careful not to overdo it.
Use hot glue to attach your first belt onto your boot.
Do the same with the second. And third. Trim off any excess belt length.
If you want even more flair, try adding lace trim or any kind of trim you’ve got in your craft closet. And that’s it!
We recommend rocking these with a pair of blue skinnies and a basic top – the boots should be your statement piece for the day.
And of course, how can you rock a pair of such hot boots without your trusty aviators? :)
