Introduction: My Upcycled Denim Fringed Painted Shoe Refashion

Picture of My Upcycled Denim Fringed Painted Shoe Refashion

J’adore my new painted (faux) leather and denim fringed shoes!

Here’s what I did:

Step 1:

I started with a pair of inherited faux suede granny boots, old jeans and blue carpet paint I had on hand.

Step 2:

I removed the laces from the shoes and taped off the bottoms then painted all of the faux suede areas and set them aside to dry and set for 24 hours.

Step 3:

I grabbed the jeans and chopped off 2 equal pieces from the bottom of the legs.

Sliced each piece into fringes and then tossed them in with my next load of laundry.

Step 4:

How cool is that result? The denim fringe curled up during the wash cycle!

Step 5:

I wrapped the fringed denim pieces around the tops of my shoes to get the correct length then chopped and stitched them to size.

Step 6:

Punched a hole in each end and my funky removable fringe was complete.

I simply wrapped it around each shoe and fed the laces through the holes!
