diy tassel wrap sandals + giveaway!

The magic that is my collab with CRAVE by CRV is the gift that keeps on giving. Last week, Carli showed you how to make an adorable pompom basket using tshirts, and today I’m coming to you with another DIY that is probably my easiest one yet!

I came up with the idea for this DIY when perusing my fave shoe designer Loeffler Randall’s site and nearly fell off my chair when I saw these. My absolute favorite style of sandal–that of the leather wrap variety–covered in all my favorite things: tassels! stars! pompoms! NEON!

Since I’ve already splurged on their similar Starla sandal, I simply couldn’t bring myself to drop $300 on this pair. That’s when I had the thought I always have when I see something I can’t afford: I’ll make it!

Insert CRAVE by CRV’s teeny shoe tassels. While most of their products are awesome finished items (jewelry! keychains! bags!), these little guys are sold loose in over 20 different colors. (The crafter in me couldn’t resist!) Add them to the laces of your sneakers, string them on a necklace to create a style all your own, or do what I did and make a pair of funky fiesta sandals that are sure to turn heads all summer long.

The best part? Carli, our lovely photographer Christina, and I are giving away a set of teeny shoe tassels in the same colors featured here in this very DIY. AND because we love you oh so very much, we’re also throwing in the pink and orange tassel ear jackets I’m wearing. BOOM! (I hope you’re as excited as we are!!) Head to my Instagram for easy-as-pie entry details.

Now that that’s all squared away, let’s DIY!

YOU’LL NEED:

  • These Madewell sandals (or a similar pair with equally skinny laces, in which case you may not need this tutorial at all!)
  • Teeny shoe tassels
  • Scissors
  • Strong thread to match the sandals
  • Sharp, thin sewing needle

Step one: Snip the tassels off the ends of the laces, leaving a little nub of leather on the tassel to sew it back together.

Step two: Thread the tassels onto the sandals in a pattern of your choice.

Step three: Sew the snipped off tassels back onto the lace, and voilà! Told you this was the easiest DIY ever. 🙂

  • Raise your hand if you too are in full-on @mariekondo mode 🙋🏻‍♀️ Today we tackled books (among a few other odds and ends) and slowly but surely little corners of our small and totally overstuffed apartment are coming together. 🙏🏼 I wish so badly I could just put life on hold for a week or two and finish all at once 😕 but instead I’m setting aside significant time each weekend + the occasional week night and won’t stop until this place is totally pared down. 👊🏼
.
For us that means there will still be lots of tchotchkes and things BUT everything will be loved and have a home. That’s the plan and this time I’m sticking to it! 🙌🏼 Now you all have to hold me accountable 😂😂
.
If you’re KonMaring your home too, feel free to share below any tips and strategies for getting it all done so we can all help each other out! 💥

  • My greatest joys as a crafting educator are making new friends and providing others with an opportunity to add a bit of creativity to their day! 💥
.
This was my approach at our first two-day, totally FREE make-and-take activation in partnership with @artistsandfleas! Popping up with our mini God’s Eye workshop was a wonderful opportunity to invite new people into the world of The Neon Tea Party, offer a chance to learn a new skill and continue to get TNTP’s name out there. 😊
.
Swipe through to see many of the gorgeous God’s Eye weavings our new friends made! I just love how each color combo is so different. 😍
.
A HUGE thank you once more to @artistsandfleas for providing TNTP the opportunity to connect with their community!!! It’s been an honor! 🧡 .
