DIY: Sneaker Fringe


You might have been seeing those on Pinterest, Instagram and so on for a while. You can purchase attachable Fringes for your Shoes in all kinds of colors and textures for 35$ - or just make them yourself. They are pretty easy to make and hide the dirtiness of your shoes within seconds! Wanna know how? Read all the easy instructions below :) 

you got inspired? Get some chic sneakers here and here and start to decorate them!

choose your fabric - some people would prefer something similar like the texture of the shoes they will be attached at. I prefer artificial leather in pastel-colors since its more waterproof than real leather and looks like candy.. haha. also, you need a cutter, a hot-glue gun and a pencil. 
ATTENTION: I have a size 39, so you better measure your own shoes for a perfect fit! to cover the laces I need 7cm, for the back piece I add 3 more cm, which will be folded backwards in the final step. the visible part will be divided in 5-6 Fringes. But only around the half of the visible piece of leather, otherwise they will fall apart or look too loose. So, for me: 10cm piece of leather in total, 3cm on the back and 7cm on the front: 4cm will be cut in five 1cm - Tassels and the rest stays as it is.
10cm leather
7cm front - 3cm back
4 cm tassels lenght
1cm tassel width
You make 4 of them in total and always glue two pieces of them together. That will make them more solid. Afterwards you flip the backside and put a little bit of glue on the back, as well as on every tassel, so they won't slip away and add two little holes on each fringe for your shoe-laces. Try to measure them carefully, so they fit perfectly, not as mine :D and last but not least: Show me your pictures! have fun and tell me in the comments if its easy to understand. or even possible.

    1. since they are detachable, you can put them on and off again and won't ruin the shoes (:
