DIY Pom Pom Sandals


Pom poms are having a stylish moment right now, especially on sandals. If there’s one thing I love, it’s a trend that’s easy to DIY. To join in on this fun spring trend, here’s how to make a pair for yourself (and a matching pair for your mini me)…


Supplies: White sandals (mine are consignment, Edie’s are from Old Navy), pom poms in varying colors and shapes, Fabritak glue (the best for holding textiles, felt, etc)



The hardest part is selecting the right combination. Really, you can’t go wrong with spring colors but there’s still the possibility of overthinking the whole design. So don’t think too hard. Start with one color you love (for us, it was the pink), and starting add to it bit by bit.


For the kid version, we had a bit more fun and used the natural lines of the sandal as guidelines for our pom pom design.

For the adult version, we went for the bold, larger pom poms in one of our favorite happy color combinations: pink and orange.


If you’re feeling super noncommittal about it, use some double sided sticky tape to swap them in and out to test what looks best.



All set for Edie and I to wear our pom pom sandals this spring!
