Crafty Woman: Scavenger Boots

There is something so satisfying about taking a generic little thing and turning it into something more one-of-a-kind. I have this obsession all my life, where I'll try to turn everything I buy into something that feels so much more my own.

I finally got around to revamping some generic lace-up boots that I picked up. I had wanted to try out this awesome DIY, so I waded my way through various outlets to find the bits and pieces I needed.

And all I needed was a random, pretty but boring pair of boots, some lace scavenged from the bottom of a forgotten old slip, two bargain bin belts and feathers I'd bought and was dying to use. Oh, and superglue.

I am just having so much fun parading these around the house, I can't wait for autumn so I can actually wear them out!

Here's a (sadly blurry) before and after:

I really recommend this DIY as it is sooo easy but looks so great. And you can really put just about anything you want on any boots you want. Basically, you can create some footwear that really feels like an extension of your sole—I mean soul ;)
(I know, I'm terrible).


P.s. Mr. Kate also has this more hard-core Free People-esque boho boots tutorial here.
