When you live on a tight budget, you have to get creative. Since I couldn’t splurge on new boots this winter, I found a way to quickly update my plain black boots.
Step one: Cut the tulle and bling to fit around your boot. The tulle should be long enough to tie into a bow, and the bling just long enough to cover the front and sides of the boot.
Step two: Fold the outside edges of the tulle towards the middle.
Step three: Fold the tulle in half. This will keep the edges tucked inside.
Step four: Place the folded tulle on wax paper. Put the jewelry glue on the bling and press it onto the tulle. Cover with a stack of books and let dry. The glue will adhere the layers of tulle to the bling.
Wrap the strip around your boots and tie into a bow. Instant boot transformation!
But why stop at boots? I’ve made other lengths and widths to use as belts, wraps, and headbands! Just because money’s tight doesn’t mean you can’t have fun with your wardrobe. A little bling can go a long way towards creating a new look!
