6 Ways to Modify Ballet Flats


I've been looking for good ballet flats for a looong time. It's been difficult finding something that is in leather, that has this stretchy edge (since otherwise they tend to fall off my feet), that are comfortable and in my price range. Well, yesterday I finally found some cute ones by ...me Too at Nordstrom Rack, about 40 bucks on clearance. Excellent!

Now I'm trying to decide how to embellish them, and I thought I'd share with you sweeties as well. These small trinkets are all stuff that I've found at Michaels.

Flower Power




Metal


Black Bling


Measure Tape


I'm almost convinced this last one is my favorite, but I can't decide yet...

After doing a bit of research, it seems 2-Ton Epoxy Glue would be a good glue to attach the embellishments with according to Bling Deco.

Thanks to this blogpost by becoming elizabeth I'm also thinking about Mod Podging my flats with patterns:
