The idea was to decorate the shoes with black plastic beads, two strings of beads on each shoe.  It looks like a bracelet on an ankle, and it definitely adds more style to your look. 😍

– Pair of shoes for decoration. Take your old shoes, or take your new shoes – it’s really up to you!
– Some pearls or beads with no sharp edges around the holes. Choose the color, form and weight of beads based on your wants and needs.
Strong elastic string or cord (.5 – .7 mm). Thinner elastic strings can be stretched or broken quite easily. Try to avoid that!
– A pin.
– Scissors.

Start to string the beads, but don’t cut the elastic string. Thus you will have to make just one single knot in the end. The length of the first row depends on the boot’s width, so it’s really up to you how long it is. But remember not to stretch the string, let the beads hang free.

When the first row is finished, simply push two ends of the string through the top eyelets of the boot. Add 4 or 5 more beads from the boot’s inside and wrap the string to the outside. Temporally pin one end of the string to the boot. Then, make a second row with beads. Make sure that this row is little bit longer than the first one. Now just put two ends of the string together. As the final step make a little knot and hide it between beads.

You have decorated your boot! Just don’t forget to repeat all the steps with another boot…
