Every once in a while, a purchase comes along, so fundamental, so useful to your well being as a human, you can hardly believe your good fortune. Thus it is with with my Target boots.
I bought these boots for $35 dollars. Yes. You read that right. Thirty-five. They were on sale from fifty. They are real leather. I love them from the bottom of my heart.
But, and not to speak ill of my wonder boots because they are the consummate perfection of foot wear, the pinnacle of comfort, but, they are just a wee bit plain.
And you know me.
Baubles make everything better, even boots. (Wow that's a mouthful.)
Here's the "how to" on my boot embellishments:
You will need:
A round of leather or thick felt.
Felt flowers and leafs.
A darning needle.
A metal clip.
Using the darning needle, run the yarn through the center of each felted ball and tie off the end.
Snip a slit in the leather round. Slide the upper prongs of the clip through the back of the round and glue down with hot glue.
Arrange your felt flowers. I bought my felt flowers to save time, but you can make your own. There's like a kabillion tutorials online showing you how. Google it.
Glue down your yarn with the felted balls first. Then start hot glueing your arrangement onto the round on top of the clip and yarn.
Supa supa easy. And you can clip your little arrangement onto a headband or necklace or even your purse. We are nothing if not versatile around here. But if you want to be on the cutting edge of fashion, you will join me in my boot embellishment revolution.
Long live the Target boot.
And now... to a give away.
