Spiked Boots




Tired of your old boots? Let's (re)make them new!

What you'll need:
1) boots,
2) spikes (I used spikes with screw inside),
3) awl to make holes,
4) white pen to mark, where to make holes,
5) small screwdriver (I borrowed one from my  boyfriend's kit).

Step 1: Mark, Where the Spikes Will Be

Put the spikes on your boots, where you would like them to be. And mark those places with white pen (or something else that is visible on the boots).

Step 2: Making Holes

Now take the awl and make holes, where you marked. I suggest making holes a bit bigger than you think you'll need. Because I made them quite small and struggled with getting the spikes in.

Step 3: Putting the Spikes In

Now that you have holes, you can put the spikes in. It's not that easy as I thought - the boot toe is not the easiest place to reach...
So take the bottom part of the spike and put it through the hole. Then put on the upper part of the spike (which is the spike itself) and screw them tightly together. This is where I used the small screwdriver - I used it from the inside of the boot. Well, it wasn't easy, but it was worth it.

Step 4: And It's Done!

And there you go! Now you have spiked boots!
Thanks for reading and enjoy wearing them!

    I bought them at H&M, but I'm sure you can get spikes in other shops, too. I saw them at H&M and fell in love, but in future I think I'm gonna buy spikes and studs on ebay or somewhere else, where they are cheaper.

    I love the boots! Maybe someplace like a spencer or hot topic might have them?
