Cotton-Curls-DIY-515x343

the latest minnetonka diy

Supplies:
Minnetonka Back Zipper Boots
Leather or faux leather (mine is faux from the upholstery section)
2 Buttons
Needle and thread
Glue (I used fabric mod podge)
Scissors and (optional) exacto knife
Studs (optional)

Instructions:
Step 1. Cut around 3.5 to 5 feet of leather material per shoe about 1/3″ to 3/4″ apart.

Step 2. I had to cut shorter pieces that were about 2 feet long, so I needed to glue (or you can sew) together strips to make 3.5 to 5 feet long. Make 2 strips of 3.5 to 5 foot long piece, one for each shoe.

Step 3. Wrap the strips around your shoes and make it the length you want, leaving enough overlap for the button and the button hole. Sew on a button to one end, and slice a few button holes with scissors or an exacto knife on the other end. Done!

Step 4. Optional: You can add studs to the straps to add a little more edge or character! Do this by puncturing little holes into the strips where the prongs of the studs will go, then push them down on the other side.
