These pom pom sandals were everywhere this year! I was in love with them, but not the high price tag that came with them. Since I knew they were a trend, I didn’t want to invest in a pair such as these. I decided to make my own. I bought the materials for decorating them from Michael’s! Use coupons from their app. I thought I would share this easy step by step tutorial with you because I am in love with them! 


Needle Nose Pliers


Sandals (eBay)


1. First, sew a jump ring onto the pom poms you want to attach to the sandal. I tried to do a more random approach to this, so I grabbed a handful and started sewing. Pull the pom pom fuzz tight so you can make a secure loop with the needle and thread, then continue that until the jump ring is securely fastened to the pom pom. Repeat for all pom poms. TIP: Choose jump ring sizes that are just big enough for the sandal ties so that your decorations stay more in one place to make sure they don’t fall off.

2. Second, sew the tassels onto the ends of the sandals tie strings. This will give them a finished look as well as add flair to the sandal. Then attach the remainder of the tassels onto the sandals: open up their jump rings with pliers, slip the sandals tie in the jump ring, and clamp the ring shut again with the pliers. 

3. Next, attach the Medallions the same way you did your tassels in a sporadic placement. I put one down close to my toes and about 3 others spread through the sandal. 

4. Next, place all your pom poms on your sandals the same way you did the tassels and medallions. I wore my sandals I placed the pom poms on so that I could see the aesthetic as I went. You don’t have to do this but if you like it to be balanced I suggest this. 

5. Wear them EVERYWHERE! 

P.S. I just tried this new product and loved it! It has 50 spf to protect you from the sun while also giving you a gradual tan. The look of this product is much more gradual than other self-tanners. I have it on my back to blend in all the colors, I tend to tan more laying on my back! It’s a quick dry oil that is easy to apply and very buildable. Don’t let the color of the bottle scare you!
