RAINBOW SLIDERS DIY!
The snow has gone! Spring is just around the corner! Yes, it's still cold - but I'm feeling optimistic about the coming months, so I thought I'd share a sunny make, from late last year...This is a slightly different 'format' to my usual type of post, as I wanted to create something a bit more snappy... it's a straight-forward DIY, inspired by some 'snazzy' sliders I spotted online.
THE INSPIRATION: A pair of pompom sliders, by Rea Feather, currently on sale for £165!
THE MODIFICATION: I wanted an almost exact copy - with the main difference being I wanted a bit of 'lift', and not such a flat sole...
Take one pair of sliders:
Choose some brightly coloured pompom trim:
Add the trim to the slider, one row at a time, using glue to secure as you go, snipping off at the end of each row:
THE END RESULT:
So, a quick final price comparison:
Sliders: £11 on eBay
Pompom trim: £6 (99p per metre)
Glue & Glue Gun: Model's own! (but not expensive, less than £10)
Total cost: £17! A saving of £148, if you were thinking of buying the designer version!

LOOKING COOL ON THE BOOT OF THE CAR...
AND ON FEET!!
Thank-you for being there, for reading this, for supporting me - and for crafting time for yourself (just in general - not specifically to read this post!).
Well done! I love the pompom trim. However, the photos at the end of this post are the best. I laughed so hard that I woke my family up at the other end of the house :)ReplyDelete
I'm so pleased!! I love the idea of that :)Delete
