Beribboned Shoes

Matching shoes to bridesmaid dresses is easy when you customize them with ribbon. Wide or narrow ribbons look equally lovely on a pair of basic sandals; for thin back straps, cut wide ribbons into strips or use narrow ones.

steps

  1. To attach ribbon strip, dot strap of shoe with fabric glue and press ribbon onto strap. Trim ends at the proper angle, and tuck into shoe's crease. (If you like, glue on a bow-tied ribbon.) For a buckle hole, use the existing holes as a guide to pierce the ribbon (a darning needle works well).
