By Dreamcreate @THEdreamcreate

When I spotted the beautiful heels at Alberta Ferretti’s spring 2014 runway show my heart skipped a beat!

Not only are they seriously perfect for holiday parties, but they are soooo easy to DIY!

I found these black heels in the wardrobe room at work, and spent about $5 on satin ribbon. Easy.

Tools needed:

a pair of black heels  /  approx 3 meters of black satin ribbon  / scissors  / glue

Step one – Cut the ribbon in half.

Step 2 – In the exact middle of each piece dab some hot glue / super glue.

Step 3 – Quickly attach the glued section to the base of the heel. Hold for a few seconds to let the glue dry.

Step 4 – Put your shoe on and tie up the ribbon. Start by criss-crossing the two pieces of ribbon around the front of your ankle. Wrap the ribbons around once and tie a bow on the outer side of your ankle. Satin ribbon is slippery, so make sure to wrap tightly and tie a tight bow.  Trim excess ribbon.

Step 5 – Party

I love this DIY so much, it took be about 5 minutes / 5 dollars and looks so sleek! The great part is that when you are sick of the ribbon just pull it of the shoe and you have a classic heel again.

If you are watching your money this holiday season, this is such a great way to transform what you already own. I am FOR SURE doing this to my red heels as well.

What do you guys think, are you going to try this yourself?

As always, I love hearing from people who have questions about the DIY or have tried it and love it!
