One of my favorite types of shoes are ankle-strap heels, especially when they have a bow on them. Unfortunately, I’m pretty picky and usually always find something to nitpick at, whether it’s color, shape or silhouette.
I realized that with the nude, white and black heels I have in my wardrobe, I could create a different mood with my outfits simply by adding a bowtie to the heels. There’s 4 reasons I really like the way I do mine:
- It’s cheap to make
- It’s also easy to make
- It is less than $10
- It isn’t a permanent alteration to your shoes!
All you need is are 3 items and less than 10 minutes of your time for the DIY project.
- 1.5-inch wide ribbon
- Clear nail polish
Cut 2 strips of ribbon. I made mine about 36 inches long. At the ends you will cut them at an angle, and keep the cut as straight as possible.
Using the clear nail polish, paint the front and back of both ends of the ribbon. This will prevent the edges from fraying. Let dry for several minutes – I carefully hung mine over a chair.
And that’s pretty much it! I roll them up and keep them sitting on a shelf in my closet. Do not fold them as they will crease. After wearing, I steam them to remove wrinkles.
