Summer Style Trend | Pom Pom Sandals | DIY

I am currently slightly obsessed with this Summer's fashion trend of pom poms & tassels.  You see them all over the style blogs and Instagram.  Aren't they just so much fun!  These fun pom heels were inspired by the Aquazzura designs but I created them for a fraction of the price.  Lets face it, this is definitely a fashion trend that I don't think will be around for a while, so why not save your coins and DIY your own.  What I love about DIY projects is that you truly can make it your own.  

Follow the instructions below & you can create your own fun & festive pom pom heels for this Summer & even into early Fall.  

Step 1:  Shop for the Supplies to complete project: 

E6000 Adhesive - Purchased from Hobby Lobby or any craft store - this is an option that will take more time because the glue has to become tacky before the poms will stay in place. 

 Hot Glue Gun in my opinion is the easiest! Using a glue gun made this project so simple & fast.  I literally completed my first pair in about 30 minutes.

Selecting my color combinations were the hardest part because the possibilities are endless.

 Leather braided cord - Joann Fabric - this will replace the ankle buckle straps to create a fun lace up style.

White ankle tie PomPom Heels - Shoes from Target 

I hit the jackpot with finding my white sandals because they were on clearance at Target for $11.48.  You want to make sure if you recreate this look that you find the sandals with the removable ankle strap so that you can replace it with another ankle tie.  

After you've decided on your color combinations with your pom poms its time to start placing them on the shoe.  For me it was easier to start in the center of the shoe and work my way to each side.

White Pom Pom Heels are perfect for summer styles & so much fun!  Add additional tassels if desired. 

 I loved my white heels so much, I had to create a Black ankle tie Pom Pom Heels with Tassel. These are super sexy and will look amazing with skinny jeans and dresses.

Michaels Craft Store & it was on clearance! 

Voila!  Super sexy summer heel that can take you into early Fall for special events! 

 Super easy DIY and very on trend for the Summer. In total with shoes and supplies it was a $22.00 investment.  The black pom pom heels were about $16 total because I scored the shoes on clearance also!  Do you love to DIY?  What are some things you've created this summer?  Share in the comments below!
