DIY Pom-Pom Sandals

You’ve probably already seen how pom-poms are being attached to just anything from key chains to hats. You probably own some and love them. But we are especially fond of the miniature version of those fluffy woollen balls when they are being added to sandals. We’ve previously used them together with tassels on our line of bracelets and necklaces but this time we wanted to share how easy it can be to transform any shoes you already have into the colorful Spring item you are most probably going to be wearing this season.

Here is a list of what you will need followed by 7 super easy steps. If you have any questions just drop us a line!


  • Sandals with stripes
  • Friendship Bracelets
  • Needle
  • Thread
  • Charms
  • Tassels
  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • Plastic clips/pegs


  1. Sew the pom-poms to the sides of the friendship bracelet leaving some space in the middle.
  2. Cut the ends of the friendship bracelet according to the size of the sandal’s strip
  3. Glue the friendship bracelet onto the sandal’s stripe
  4. Use plastic clips/pegs to press and let the glue set
  5. Repeat this step for all the stripes available in the sandal
  6. Sew some pom-poms and tassels onto the lace of the sandal
  7. Add some charms in between and you are done!

    1. Thank you love! I got the sandals from pull and bear, any stripe leather sandal will work though
      I got the friendship bracelets from Amir Artisanat and the pom pons from a stationary near LAU
      If you need any help let me know xxxx


  1. Hey! I love this! I actually bought this type of sandals in Greece, but they didnt come with the friendship bracelets. I was thinking about doing what you did and just pasting them, but Im scared that whenever I cut them theyre going to get undone and it’ll be a disaster. How did you manage for that not to happen? Thanks! and I love your blog :*


    1. Thank you dear ❤ I am so glad you like this post!
      Once you cut the friendship bracelets you directly add a little bit of super glue so they don't get undone
      It is super easy to do! If you end up redesigning your sandals, we would love to check some pics! XXX


  2. […] DIY projects, then it must definitely be summer! A few posts back we shared our love for the Pom Pom sandals and given the happiness that it created we decided to share this customizing passion of ours again […]
