What You Need

  • Pom-poms
  • Trim
  • Wool
  • Shoes
  • 2 cardboard rings
  • Glue gun
DIY Pom-Pom Sandals: Steps


  1. Make two pom-poms out of the wool. Cut two donut-shaped pieces from cardboard. Place the rings together. Wind the wool around the rings. Once your rings are full of wool, cut the wool around the edges.. Pass a length of wool between the two pieces of cardboard and tie it together. Now remove the cardboard rings. Trim any uneven lengths of wool to give your pom-poms a tidy look.
  2. Take the pair of shoes you want to “funky up” , cut a piece of pom-pom trim, (about 3/4-inch for my shoes) and glue it to the back of your sandals.
  3. Glue the big pom-pom you just made as shown in picture. Glue little pom-poms to the strap of your sandals. Finished!

Pairing with a neutral piece, like a black or white skirt, will help tone down the outfit and make you the star of street. Head-turning heels, promise;-)
