Roll Back to the ’80s With a Pair of DIY Sequin Skates
For us, ’80s fashion *never* goes out of style. While there are definitely some trends that should stay in that decade, I’m all in for other looks like graphic sweatshirts and holographic apparel. When I brainstormed what I should do for this shoot, I looked up ’80s fashion and saw this awesome roller skating photo, and it was like a light when on! I wanted — no, I needed to DIY roller skates.
Decorating your roller skates with sequin polka dots is really simple. Depending on how many dots you do, you can definitely finish this DIY in a couple of hours or less. All you need then are knee socks, and boom — you’re a roller girl!
Materials and Tools:
Unlace skates. Glue sequins on roller skates in a circle.
Life’s too short to not roller skate.
This is how I roll.
Phew! I need a skate break.
