It’s true — I love shopping. But what I love more is a good deal :) One of my coworkers showed me these amazingly cute Kate Spade sandals that were $110, and while I would love to own them, there is so much more I could do with $110 than buy a statement sandal that I’ll wear only a handful of times. So of course, I thought — can I make this myself? I ordered a pair of Call It Spring Sandals ($30) off Amazon and turned this Kate Spade situation into a DIY. Follow along below to learn how to make these sandals for yourself, and rock ’em for the rest of the summer months.

Materials and Tools:

These sandals are a breeze to make. Let’s get to it!

Cut out two half circles from nude leather. The diameter should be about three inches.

Trace your half circles on orange vinyl. Cut out an orange brim that is almost a hairline thin, and then a wavy orange slice inside.

Peel, stick, and iron the orange vinyl onto the leather.

Use Fabri-tac to glue the orange slices onto the top edge of the sandal.

Spell out “main squeeze” on the two sandals — use Fabri-tac to glue down the vinyl stickers.
