: Pretty Faux Fur DIY Boot Shapers from Water Bottles Fashion + DIY + Lifestyle. Let me first start by saying that this may be one of my all-time favorite DIYs EVER… and I think my best DIYs come from pure necessity and/or a real desire to have something fabulous that I can’t find elsewhere.

: Pretty Faux Fur DIY Boot Shapers from Water Bottles Fashion + DIY + Lifestyle

For instance, I can NEVER find really great boot shapers… thus, some of my boots are lying flat in their original boxes & others are standing with their original paper boards & tissue paper that came with them {very unchic!}. Really, when it comes down to it, I don’t want to spend money on boot shapers but I also don’t want to look in my closet and see a bunch of wine bottles or plastic bottles sticking out of my shoes.

So this is my solution… and as soon as I finish more SmartWater bottles, I’ll be making sets for all my boots in my closet. NOTE: Though this DIY is not complicated, there are a lot of steps. What You’ll Need… * SmartWater bottles {two 33.8 fl.oz.bottles per each boot stay}* Scissors* Duct Tape* Hot Glue Gun {I started with Mod Podge – big mistake! Steps… Voila!

Plain Jane Canvas Shoes Restyle

I'm Jodie, crafter and stitcher of Lova Revolutionary and author of Happy Stitch. Summer time is just my favorite and I love a simple pair of canvas shoes to slip on for some quick outings to the park, to take to the beach, and to play with the pooch in! I picked up a pair recently but decided they needed a little something-something to make them extra cute.

I thought I'd share this little restyle DIY with you, so you can stitch up a cute pair or perk up a pair you have already! Supplies: canvas shoes, several colors of embroidery floss, thick hand sewing needle, needle gripper (optional), pencil Step 1: Simply sketch out your design on your shoes with a regular pencil, careful to leave some space around the edge. Step 2: Begin filling in your design using some easy embroidery stitches. Step 3: When you are finished with each floss color, tie a knot on the inside to secure your thread.
