Introduction: How to Make Led Shoes
Runner Up in the
In this simple tutorial i'm gonna show you how to make your own led shoes!
Step 1: Needs
if you want to recreate this, you are going to need:
-a pair of shoes (prefer some that are high tops),
-2 LED Strip Lights with Battery Box that measure the circumference of one peer of shoe, but if it doesn't measure exactly it's circumference, then take the closest measure but always bigger. Here's the link for the one that I bought -> https://www.amazon.fr/Guirlande-Lumineux-Batterie-...,
-some super glue
-a pair of scissors
Step 2: Mesure Out the Right Size of the Led Strip
You're going to place your stripe all around your shoe, so that you can see where you are going to cut,
Step 3: Then Cut It Out!
What you want to do is cut right in the middle of the orange part, so that the light work anyway
Step 4: Stick the Strip on the Shoe
Now that you have your strip cutted the right size, pay attention that the mini remote control is on the inside of the shoe for more aestheticism, and then, little by little, you're going to peal of the backing paper, and for more security, stick it on the shoe with super glue ! Press for a little while one the part where you're working before passing to the following one !
You can put one the batteries, and see that it's starting to take form!!
Step 5: Let's Make a Pouch for the Battery!
Now moving on to the battery, we are going to take some fabric scrap, and cut it so that it form a rectancle a little bigger than the battery,
Then fold 3 edges so that it form a little pouch, and sew it to the tongue portion of the shoe, make sure during this process that the battery actually fit into your pouch!
Step 6: Repeat All the Steps One the Other Shoe and There You Have It!!
We have a be nice policy.
