We鈥檙e聽falling more and more in love with tassels every day.聽Recently, we discovered how to make a tassel balloon in just five minutes and had fun DIYing聽a $130 Anthropologie tote for *way* less. So today, when we started packing our summer聽travel essentials, we scouted an old pair of flats and started dreaming about a new project.聽With just a few scraps of leather, we聽updated last season鈥檚 sandals聽into聽these frilly Marc Fisher-inspired cuties.

Materials and Tools:
鈥 black faux聽leather scrap

鈥 fabric scissors

鈥 glue gun

鈥 rope

鈥 old pair of sandals

Step (1)

Instructions:

1. Cut out 6聽tiny pieces of rope.

2. Cut a 3聽x 4-inch swatch of leather. Then repeat to create 3聽more rectangles.

3. Take your first rectangle and cut to create some thin fringe.

4.聽Using a hot glue gun, glue聽both ends聽of a piece of rope to the top left of your fringed leather swatch to make a loop.

5. Starting at this loop, roll the leather, gluing as you go.

6. Repeat until you have a total of 4聽tassels.

7. Thread a piece of聽cord聽through the loops of 2聽tassels, as shown below.

8. Tie a knot to secure the tassels to the sandal.

step 2

First, cut out six聽tiny pieces of rope. Mine were more or less three inches long. Then cut a 3聽x 4-inch swatch of leather and repeat to create three聽more. Next, take your first rectangle and cut to create some thin fringe, as shown above. At this point, use聽a hot glue gun or some leather glue to bind聽both ends聽of a piece of rope to the top left of your fringed leather, making a loop.

step 2

Starting at the loop, roll the leather, gluing as you go.聽Repeat until you have a total of four聽tassels (or more if you want!). Then take two tassels and thread a piece of聽cord聽through their聽loops.聽Tie a knot to secure the tassels to the sandal and repeat with the other shoe.
