Quote of the day : ‘If you can’t afford it, DIY it’ – Ifeoma A. 

It’s been such a long DIY break on the blog and that’s because I’ve been really caught up in a lot of things (life actually) that I’ve barely had thing to create but today I present to you (drum rolls) how to make your very own Tzar Inspired Huge Bow Slides!!!!

What You’d Need :

Old slides 

Piece of leather (or any fabric of choice)

Piece of mesh (optional) 


Pair of scissors

Soles (optional

How To Make It :

* First I took out the old soles on my slides as the were pink which I think didn’t match the black piece of leather I bought and they were kinda worn out too. 

* I then cut my piece of leather into two equal parts, I covered the pink leather on my slide with one half of the leather then after measuring it out and making sure it looks how I want glued it in place. (Repeat same for the other slide)

* I then cut the mesh piece into two equal halves and with the two halves I cut them further into two equal halves again and that left me with four equal mesh pieces and I allocated two pieces to each slide.

* Then I attached the two pieces to both sides of each slide with my glue, achieving something that looks like a thick short rope.

* I then put some glue on my new soles (I had to scratch on the surface a little to aid faster and better glueing), let it dry a little while (2 minutes), then I carefully glued it to the back of each slide. I employed the assistance of a hammer to make sure it stuck in place.

* I then made a cute bow with the mesh ropes and voila my slides are to hit the road!

I hope this pictorial is detailed enough to help you make your own pair because I’m totally loving mine so much at the moment and it’s just the perfect shoes to keep your feet in all weekend long, talk of comfortable and super stylish.

           Till next time… xoxo
