Already have Toms? Wanting a new pair but can’t afford it? An easy and affordable solution to cover the holes on those soles is DIY Toms.

What you need:


-glue (hot glue is recommended)

-pen or clip




How to Create:

1. Cut out the fabric by personal preference and adjust according to the Toms shoe size.

2. Use a hot glue gun (for a quick dry) and glue the fabric on the shoes.

3. Add clothes pins to help hold the fabric together while the shoes dry.

4. Sew a hem to the top part of the fabric to give it more of a finished look.

Some DIYers have also used paint or paint pens to draw designs on their shoes while others have glued on studs. The creative options are endless.
