Best Foot Forward: 3 DIY Shoe Makeovers for Spring #shoemakeover #diyshoes #diy #fashion #springfashion

So, I whipped up 3 different ways to makeover a simple pair of shoes with essentially just a needle and thread. It’s way less messy that dying, painting, etc and is super customizable. Plus, if you ever get tired of the design you created, you can remove it without damage to the shoe and start fresh with a completely new look.
