I'm simply giddy that sandal season is upon us. If you've made your feet pretty with our home spa pedicure
, then you are ready to try your hand at making your own sandals.
If Anna's recycled tire sandals
aren't your thing, you might like to order this Make Your Own Sandals Kit
. They are customizable and very stylish. The assembly instructions
are clear and easy to follow, and you can purchase fun add-ons like charms
and other embellishments.
The drawback? At 39.95 for a basic sandal kit, you could just go out and buy a pair of already-made sandals. But if you are a die-hard DIYer, this is an easy way to say, "I made these shoes."
I am wondering if you could use an old pair of shoe soles, buy new leather strapping, and fashion yourself a similar pair of sandals for less -- recycling old shoes, to boot. It would be better for the planet and your wallet!
