DIY Studded Sandals :: Manualidad Sandalias Tachuelas



Hi dolls! I'm baaaack! I'm sorry for the absence. I had a great time with my husband visiting a couple of dear friends in Chicago (OOTD and pics coming soon). I did this project before I left, but I didn't have a chance to post it. I had this idea for months and I finally  got around to doing it. I only wore these sandals a couple of times since I bought them years ago.

Español
Hola muñecas! Ya volviiiii! Lo siento que estuve ausente. Mi esposito y yo fuimos de viaje a Chicago a visitar a una querida pareja de amigos. La pasamos super ! (fotitos/vestuario vienen pronto). Hice esta manualidad antes de viajar pero no tuve tiempo de subirla. Esta idea estuvo en mi cabeza ya por mucho tiempo y ahora que la hice me siento mas aliviada. Use estas sandalias solo un par de veces desde que las compre.

You'll need :: Necesitaras
  • A pair of sandals. / Un par de sandalias.
  • A pencil (to mark the hole location). / Un lapiz para marcar los puntitos.
  • Leather punch(for the big holes). / Perforadora de cuero.
  • Dart or Ice Pick (for the small holes). / Use un dardo para los huequitos pequeños.
  • Studs (rounded and square from Michaels) /  Tachuelitas (use redonditas y cuadraditas de Michaels).



Step 1: Mark the hole locations with dots.
Paso 1: Marca donde pondras las tachuelitas.


Step 2: Make the holes. I used the leather punch for the larger holes and a throwing dart for the smaller holes.
Paso 2: Hace los huequitos. Use la perforadora de cuero para los huecos grandes y el dardo para los huecos pequeños.


Step 3:  Place the studs in the holes and fold the legs back (like in the picture below). Make sure you bend them so they are flush against the leather and won't cut or scrape your feet.
Paso 3: Agrega las tachuelas y dobla las patitas (como en la foto de abajo). Asegurate que esten bien dobladas y un poco incrustadas en el cuero para que no te roce la piel.


Tip: You can also glue a small strip of fabric or leather over the folded legs of the studs as additional protection.
Consejito: Puedes agregar/pegar un pedazon de tela o cuero a lo largo de las patitas como extra proteccion.

Thank you so much for reading.
I hope you like this DIY.
kisses!
