‘I want some DIY Floral Sliders!’
I am back with something different this week! a DIY!! I love being creative and I also love a bargain, so this week’s DIY ticks BOTH boxes! FLORAL SLIDERS!
I don’t know about you but I love floral sliders. Not only are they mega in fashion, but they are also super comfortable and look good on anyone! Whilst doing some fashion browsing, I came across these shoes from ItsPommy.com and I instantly fell in love, I remember showing my friend like OMG I have to get these… (they’re £28.99)
But then I got thinking… I could probably make them for a lot less and I could make them how I wanted, for me.
Time to make your floral sliders!
I got looking for floral embroidery patches and I came across the exact same patches from Ebay for £4 for the pair! BARGAIN.COM. You don’t necessarily have to use floral rose patches, there are loads available online, but I really wanted some rose sliders…
Which brings me onto the sliders. I picked up a standard pair of white sliders from Primark (also for £4) and made sure the band that goes across the foot was wide enough for the patch. Ofcourse, you don’t have to use sliders for this, any shoes will do. You could use trainers, espadrilles, slip ons, the world is your oyster!
So once I had the essentials, I got hold of some industrial grade super glue and stuck the floral patch to the slider. I found that gluing the main part of the patch first, then the leaves etc worked best as it enabled me to get the patch exactly where I wanted it and also stoped me gluing any bits that shouldn’t be glued.
Leave that overnight and your floral sliders are good to go!
I had so much fun making these, and they only cost me £8! I have made a little video below to show you how I made them so you can do it too…please ignore the fact that I applied the glue with a cocktail stick… couldn’t find anything and I was being impatient. Classic.
