Don't Throw it Away

Added Dec 7, 2011

West Texas, Texa...






My boots were getting a little scuffed but I have a problem with throwing anything away! I decided to upcycle them and I love them! I think they’re right on trend. The last pic boot on the left is what they looked like before the upcycle.

Material Notes

Leather boots, leather straps, glitter




Garment Type

    Very good idea! How did you treat the leather to get this used look?

    Very cool. I have a pair of red boots which i absolutely adore, but the faux lether tore right in front on one of the boots… I have been reluctnat to throw them out, and now you have given me a good idea how to salvage them! Is it ribbon you used? Is it glued or stitched?
