DIY: Strappy Sandal Fabric Wrap

Glitter N Glue DIY Wrap Sandal DETAILVariety is the spice of life… or at least that’s what Grandma use to say! I do believe that a mini makeover the the perfect way to add a little variety to your shoe collection. A fabric wrap is a great way to spice up your Summer strappy sandal. I think of this project as the turban wrap for shoes.

Glitter N Glue DIY Wrap Sandal Materials: Strappy Sandals (Shelia available at Sole Society), Fabric, Double Stick Tape, Scissors

Glitter N Glue DIY Wrap Sandal CUTCut your fabric into a rectangular strip about 2 feet long

Glitter N Glue DIY Wrap Sandal KNOTPlace your fabric around your shoe and tie it in a knot

Glitter N Glue DIY Wrap Sandal WRAPWrap the fabric around the shoe

Glitter N Glue DIY Wrap Sandal TAPETuck the ends of the fabric to the inside of the shoe and use double-sided tape to secure the ends. For a more permanent solution., secure the ends with glue.

 Glitter N Glue Wrap Sandal I wanted to play matchy-matchy so I used an old scarf that matched my shirt to wrap my shoes. The options for this project are endless! Solid fabric, printed fabric and so on and so on. It’s like back in the day when you would coordinate your hair scrunchy with your outfit…don’t act like I’m the only person that did that!

A Special Note From Kristen: I know I cut up a circa ’86 Liz Claiborne scarf, but don’t worry this is the most action this scarf has seen in years! I salvaged the shirt/scarf combo from my Mom’s closet years ago and have NEVER worn either of them. Thank goodness for project because now the ’86 LC is finally getting some attention! You however do not have to cut up Mom’s scarf. A fun fabric will work just fine for this project.
