Raining time is boots time, and thus the everyday wear is not too boring, here is a shoe decoration chain for boots, which you can, of course, remove at any time and attach it to other shoes.
Material And Tools – For This DIY Project You Need
- Leather fabric
- Studs (and a small spoon to bend the studs)
- Chain (2 pieces each about 54 cm (22 in) long, because they get triple folded)
- 4 rings (I have removed my rings from an old belt. Unfortunately, I did not have 4 identical ones, therefore I took the larger rings (diameter 2.7 cm – 1.1 in) for the outside and the slightly smaller (2.3 cm – 0.9 in) for the inside of the boots).
DIY Tutorial: The Step-By-Step Craft Instructions
DIY Step 1
For the chain, we need 4 leather pieces (2 pieces per boot) with the following dimensions: 22 x 4 cm ( 8.7 x 1.6 in) and 19 x 2 cm (7.5 x 0.8 in)
Please don’t get irritated by the thinner leather straps, which are too long in the picture. I have made the picture during the development of this tutorial and let them first a little bit longer.
DIY Step 2
The ends of the leather straps I made a bit smaller, so it’s easier (and nicer) to pull them through the rings.
DIY Step 3
Attach the studs at equal distances on the four pieces of leather. As you can see from the pictures I have taken different types of studs for front and rear.
DIY Step 4
Now attach the rings on the wider leather pieces.
DIY Step 5
Next, attach the two smaller leather straps.
DIY Step 6
Finally, attach the chain to the two rings. DONE!
Here you see how to wear the shoe ornaments: Place the wide studded leather tape in front and the chains and the thin band to the back and then pull it down over the bootleg.
