This summer is flying by! Make it last by punching up the color in your wardrobe. Check out this DIY project with Brit + Co where we teach you how to brighten up your sandals.

What you need


What you need

  • 1 yard jersey-knit cotton
  • Fabric scissors
  • Washi tape
  • Acrylic paint
  • Paint brush
  • Fabric glue
  • Sponge brush

Let's Get Started

Step 1

Gather your supplies.

Step 2

First, paint the toe strap with a white base layer. Let that dry, then apply your bright orange paint next. 

Step 3

Now you’re going to measure the different sections of your sandals using washi tape. Measure the length and width of each strap by taping from end to end. Once you’ve gotten all of your measurements, lay out your fabric, tape off your measured sections and get ready to cut!

Step 4

You’ve completed your measuring! Almost done. Cut out the fabric sections. Use the sponge brush to apply fabric glue and attach the fabric. Fringe your sandals by cutting small ¼-inch strips in the overlapping fabric.

Step 5

There ya have it — you’re ready for summer!
