DIY lace up flats 1


I’m sure everyone is aware by now how trendy lace-up flats are. I have been digging this look since last spring and I’ve seen several variations of it. I thought it would be fun to create my own! All you’ll need is a pair of pointy toed flats, two pieces of faux suede/leather string (I got these super cheap from Joann’s), a leather hole puncher, and white eyeliner (or something that will show up over black).

You’re going to start by marking where you want your holes to be.

Then start punching away!

Once you have all your wholes punched out start threading your string though the holes, crossing back and forth like lacing up sneakers.

*I used a pencil to help poke through the string.

And that’s it! Slide them on and cross/tie them how ever you like!
