Reducing waste through upcycling, repurposing, refashioning and reloving.

Upcycle: (re) Vamp your Shoes ...


Most shoe re-do's or "upcycles" I see involve very high heels, glitter, jewels and dipping in neon paint. It will probably not surprise you to hear that I don't wear a lot of glitter-dipped, bejeweled stilettos. I enjoy heels on very specific occasions.  But my current favorite shoes are blood red Dansko mary-janes that I got at a thrift store for $15. I "upcycled" them with a little shoe polish - wonderful substance!  Anyway, I am intrigued by the idea of shoe re-do's ... and shoe repurposing.  And once in a while, a project stands out. Here goes!

First, head over to A Little Tipsy and learn how to use an old t-shirt to turn flip flops into espadrilles (pictured above)!

I love to Create will show you how to get ready for PRIDE 2012!  


And... if the shoe really is beyond repair .... well, why not? 


Or, use them for jewelry storage ...
