Floral Boots DIY

Floral boots DIY 1We're just a little too excited about spring around here! This season we're feeling all things floral. Here's a cute and do-able DIY that made our plain-jane pair of boots feel fancy…

Floral boots DIY 2Supplies Needed: Plain boots with laces (we got ours a K-Mart!), pretty fabric (emma is doing her pair with striped fabric… i'll share them soon!) note: use lightweight cotton- nothing too bulky or stiff, Glue, Mod Podge + an exacto knife. 
Floral boots DIY 3Here's how we did it: 1. Glue fabric to the part of you boots you'd like to cover. Brush the glue (or Mod Podge) on and let the fabric dry. One great thing about using a floral pattern is that you don't have to be so exact about matching the pattern. Ours was pretty messy! 2-3. Use an exacto knife to cut around the edge of the boot. Take your time to cut clean lines. 4. Use Mod Podge to secure the edges of the fabric. This will keep them from fraying and make them boots more durable. ♥ 
Floral boots DIY 4Ta-Da! I'm so happy with these boots. I can't wait to wear them with lace tights and sun dresses. Maybe even a glass of lemonade! xo. elsie

  • beautiful shoes! just wondering how they have held up? i’m trying to determine where i should place my fabric, and i feel that the central area, similar to what you guys chose, might bend too much to keep them well adhered. what’s your experience been elsie?

    much love

  • Saw these over on Mod Podge Rocks and just had to check them out. Way cool. Maybe I can have a pair of girly shoes yet! My feet are large and have issues and my shoes are all from the men’s department and when I can find anything that I can stand wearing they are usually U G L Y. Will definitely have to try this.

    How did you keep from cutting the leather? And do you think if you used the outdoor formula of Mod Podge (never used it myself) that it would be more durable?

  • Will it come apart when it gets wet. I have the same boots that got kool aid stains on the toe and I love this

  • So adorable! Could I use a seam ripper instead of an exacto knife?

  • love this DIY! just ordered my boots from kmart:) if you love beautiful mess like me maybe you could check out my blog: heylyss.wordpress.com thanks!

  • SO AWESOME!!!! im totally doing this to a pair of boots i dont wear!!!
    i LOVEEEE your blog!!

  • This makes me excited for spring too! And to find some boots like that! Maybe there’s some hiding out at Goodwill with my name on them. Thanks for the idea!

  • LOVE these. I’m continually impressed by you! I did a “crush” feature on my blog about you 🙂 I run a graphic design and paper company (www.puddleduckpaper.com) and love the color stories from your dresses and decor – so inspiring!



  • God, I really adore those! Want to buy them now! Can you buy them at the website of K-Mart? ‘Cause I don’t find them …

  • So you are brushing the mod podge on the fabric then putting on the boots? I’m kind of “duh” here..sorry! Do I glue the fabric on then brush the modpodge on top of it? And did you paint it on the boots or on the fabric? This looks so fun and I have the perfect boots already I’d like to spruce up! Thank you! 🙂

  • EEE! Just found you.. I have these boots in grey and thought they need a little livening up… perfect!!!

  • LOVE this idea!! Boots are my favorite! I just need a pair that I’m willing to glue fabric to… might have to splurge for this and get a new cheap pair.

  • these are great and I have a pair that is so similar. i’m defs giving this a try tonight!

  • Yup, as everyone says, super cute! This will probably be yet another “next year” project for me. There aren’t a lot of cute boots or mod-podge suppliers in rural Japan 😉

  • Lovely idea!! I just did my black boots with some dotted lace, it’s so cool and it took 25 minutes<3

  • Just wanted you to know how much I love this project. Ever since reading this post I have looked at every pair of boots I’ve seen in a new light. Cant wait to try it. Thanks!

  • I am so so happy that you posted this! I have been looking for ways to add fabric to a thrift store leather purse to make it match my personality a bit more and couldn’t find many good tips. I am totally doing this with my purse while my 2 year old naps today 🙂 Cheers!

  • I work at Kmart and those boots rarely sell at our store.. If they did what you have done to yours.. They’d be flying off the shelf! 🙂

  • Gosh these are simply adorable. I love how the fabric just peaks through the laces.

  • SUCH a cute look, and such a great way to spice up a pair of boots!


  • ok. this is the BEST DIY you have done. i am madly in love over here.

    thank you for sharing! (i suppose i’m a bit excited about spring, myself!:))

  • this is such a beautiful idea – i do believe i need to find myself a pair of boots to do this too only in a tribal print fabric

  • This is a great plain boot makeover you could even lace them with ribbons for an extra pretty effect.

    Happy crafting
    Nicolette xo

  • those actually came out pretty cute! i like that you did the floral all the way up the tongue part of the boot and not just the lower part of the boot. it also makes them look more expensive, never would have guess they came from kmart.


  • I don’t know if you ladies know what Mori Girl style is which I adore. These boots are Mori Girl. Love this tutorial.

  • wow this is amazing.
    great job, the result is so cute!

    Just left you a comment and don’t think it posted. So, if you see this twice…my apologies. Saw this this morning and immediately thought of you. I know you’re going to love it. Think of all of the great projects you can do with this! Enjoy.

  • These are adorable…remind me of boots I wore in the 80’s. Yes, I am older than y’all…but love your blog, appreciate your style, and am often quite inspired by your creativity. Anyway, saw this paper this morning and immediately thought of you. I know you’re going to LOVE it. I just ordered some…and the typewriters. Brilliant. Enjoy.


  • Love this idea! Bring on Springtime! Hx

  • I actually love these! I really want to try them, as well as your glitter shoes! How do you make the fabric fit? Do you trace over the shoe first?

  • These look amazing! I love the whole idea. I may have to try this out!!

  • How can you be too excited for spring?! I can’t wait for the blossom to come out, and hopefully I’ll be able to go for some lovely spring walks wearing boots like these 🙂

  • Oh my God, these are just amazing!!!!!!!!! You have me wondering which boots I can do this on. I’ve not used Mod Podge before but look out craft shops here I come at speed!

  • xaxaaxxa that’s great elsie! These boot seem so i-am-miss-shineshine-and-i-love-the-spring boots! 😀

    (Pls check my new blog guys: http://inwhirlofinspiration.blogspot.com )

  • This is oh so smart and pretty, thank you for sharing!
    I wonder what will happen if it rains? is this water-secure?

  • very cute! and to think you can buy these boots at kmart!


  • these are seriously so adorable. I think I’m going to try this! I’ll have to go thrifting and find a pair of boots to try it on. Thanks!

  • You are really good with that knife- I could never get it looking as good as yours. Very nice. I have an old pair of black leather and wood clogs. The leather is old and cracked… any ideas on how to “distress” them. I really love them and would love to wear them again without looking like I need a new pair of shoes. 😉

  • Cute!! Love the florals too!

    Thanks for sharing!

  • smart idea! those look awesome! What a good way to spruce up tired looking boots!

  • Oh, my goodness. I LOVE these and extra-love that the boots originated at KMart!

  • Hi Elsie!My name is Tatiana, I’m from Argentina and I’m 21. I just needed to tell you that I really admire you, because you seem to be the loveliest person on Earth! You have so much passion and love in everything you do, and since I’ve been reading your blog, well, I’m trying to learn to live as you do, so, from the bottom of my heart, THANKS ♥

  • I adore this idea! I’ve been wanting to dress up/repair some little black lace-up flats of mine…I might just adapt this tutorial to that purpose 🙂 Thanks for posting this!


  • SUPER cool. I ‘fixed’ a pair of leather boots like this one time when my puppy got a hold of them but I never thought of using a completely different fabric.

  • My daughter did this with a pair of cowboy boots. She covered the shank of the boot with lace. They turned out really cute!

  • try it with these cute gold boots…LOVE this idea!


  • Super cute! Definitely adds a unique little touch to some already cute boots!


  • Cute! I love what you did with them! Very creative! Thanx for sharing!


  • At first I was going to madly comment on where you got those boots, and then I saw you DIY’d them, and now you’re my hero, because those are BEAUTIFUL!

  • oops= my link for the shoes didn’t work. Here it is: http://ragtoporiginals.blogspot.com/search/label/decoupage

  • These are so great! I love how tailored and unique a cheap pair of shoes can look when you “DIY” them. Check out my decoupaged shoes here (http://ragtoporiginals.blogspot.com/search/label/decoupage). In case anyone is wondering how decoupaged shoes wear, mine still look brand new after 18 months and have even been worn in the rain. CUTE project! Thanks for posting.

  • Too cute!! I’ve been getting in to fixing up shoes lately– it is amazing what a little paint and fabric can do! And even better, they are one-of-a-kind~*


  • Wow, what a great idea! Can’t wait to try it.


  • OOOOh I definitely like to try doing that on one of my shoes!! Thanks as always for sharing 🙂

  • Love these!!
