We're loving the fringe sandal trend happening right now. So today, we're showing you how to make a fun, colorful version really (really) easily! Here's how…

DIY fringe sandals / Oh Joy!

You'll need:

-inexpensive wide strap sandals

fringe trim from the craft store


-hot glue


Here's how:

1. After deciding what color fringe you want to put on your sandals, lay the first piece of fringe ribbon across the bottom edge of the strap. Measure the width it needs to span and cover the strap. Then trim with scissors.

2. Using a hot glue gun, glue the edge of the fringe ribbon to the sandal strap.

3. Repeat with the next row so that the second row of fringe overlaps slightly with the first and you don't see any of the strap between each row of ribbon. Glue this second piece to the sandal strap.

4. Repeat until you get the number of rows to your liking and let dry for five minutes. We made one pair with just a single row and the other pair with three rows to fill the whole strap.
