SHOE DIY | Koosh Ball Flats







Ok, I am sure some of you are thinking that we have lost our minds putting koosh balls on a pair of flats, but we have been seeing these shoes EVERYWHERE! Although they are a little quirky for me, I Spy DIY’s uber cute assistant, Molly, was absolutely enamored with them.  She was crushing on the unique embellishment that’s a total childhood throwback…so when she suggested the DIY, it was an immediate “Yes!” (I am such a good boss, haha). This is the simplest project, but we could not help but snap a bunch of silly picture with the uber quirky flats! Sidenote: balancing a pineapple on your feet is much harder than expected. Steps and supplies after the break, Enjoy! 




What you need:
2 Koosh Balls
Pair of flats

What you do:
Step 1: If your koosh ball has a thick elastic loop somewhere in the middle, find it and glue it down.
Step 2: In that same spot, apply a dab of glue and attach the koosh ball to the toe of the shoe.
Step 3: Glue onto the toe of your shoe, hold in place until the koosh ball stays in place. Let dry completely before wearing.

    Love the shoes! But why did you clone out the brand of the shoes in all the pics?

  9. Elsie Pop says:

    I need these in my life! They remind me of Vivienne Westwood’s Melissa shoes – anyone else see that? xx
