Cowboy Ankle Boots!
Dear Diary,
Shhh…I have a confession to make. I may or may have not taken my neighbor’s shoes. I know, that sounds totally sketchy (and I dread the day any of them discover this blog), but hold up, in my defense they clearly didn’t want them anymore. Who would put these gems in the dumpster?! Whaaa??… Yeah, I’m actually judging that person and not myself for dumpster diving. Does that make me seem even more sketchy than before? Hear me out. It was for a great cause…they deserved a second life and I’d like to think of myself as a hero – I rescued them! Plus, they were a size 7 – match made in heaven!
So instead of spending nearly $500 on a pair from Free People or Nordstrom, like these below… create your own one-of-a-kind pair!
DIY - belt boots
Here are mine!

Need:
* Old cowboy boots
* Scissors
* Hot glue gun
* Belts
* Chains, necklaces, etc… (optional)
How To:
1. Cut down the “seams”  of the boot. (front and back)

2. Fold the flaps down and glue the sides back to the boot. This will give it a sturdy structure.

3. Wrap belts around the now ankle boot and glue in place. (Optional: Add feathers, material, chains, studs, etc…) I hooked two different belts together before wrapping them. (Just use the opposite ends of each belt.)

Here are some of my other variations…
Thank goodness I have a well-accessorized mother and Glamma who have gifted me their fun belts and jewels over the years.
