DIY pom pom shoes in 5 easy steps!



So todays post is another DIY post! pom pom shoes are a massive trend at the moment and they are on dozens of websites at some ridiculous prices!and i usually dont follow "trends" but ive been lusting over a pair of shoes with pom poms for ages now but have never been able to find a pair that ive liked. So i decided to have a good and make my own using a pair of old heels and some wool i had lying around in the house.They where so easy to make and are easy to achieve in 5 steps! this proves you can do it your self and for a fraction of the price...

You get usually pick up a pair of good quality high heeled shoes of practically any colour from a charity shop for as little as £3! and you can use these as a base to decorate with your chosen pom pom/s. Or your could also add pom poms to flat dolly shoes or even kitten heels!

YOU WILL NEED -
WOOL IN YOUR CHOSEN COLOUR
TWO PIECES OF CARD CUT INTO TWO CIRCLES
SCISSORS

STEP ONE - 
first cut out two identical circles to your chosen size depending on how large you want your pom poms. Make sure you have a small hole in the middle place them together and begin winding your wool around them...



Continue to wrap your wool around your card until your card is completely full! but still has a small hole in the middle.



STEP 2! 

Begin carefully cutting your wool around the outside of your wool until you have gone right around.





STEP 3 !

carefull tie a piece of string around the middle of your circle on top of your card to hole your pom pom together.


STEP 4!

Carefully cut out the card from the middle of your pom pom.


STEP 5!

carefully trim down your pom pom to your desired size! and attach to your shoes!!!!




The final result!

You can attach the pom poms to your shoes using any size pom poms or even stacking pom poms to your shoes if you dont want them to make as much of a statement or your want a more subtle look. You can also add them to the back of your shoes! Here is some inspiration of different ways to customise using pom poms.
