Ribbon Ankle-Wrap Shoes

Quick and easy projects that make a HUGE difference are most definitely in my top 5 favorites. It is so rewarding to see a project look amazing when you are all done, that costs next to nothing and takes less than 20, 10 or even 5 minutes to create. Today, Janica is sharing a project that fits the above description to a “T” where she takes a simple strand of ribbon and totally transforms dress shoes into gorgeous, eye catching foot wear! Enjoy!

Hello Ribbon Retreat friends!
As much as I LOVE wearing my cute boots in the Fall & Winter, I equally LOVE donning the sassy shoes of Spring & Summer!
I am going to demonstrate how to use ribbon to update your shoes for the upcoming seasons. This is a great accessorizing idea that you’ll want to wear for Mother’s Day Brunch, June Weddings, or 4th of July Picnics!

The felt circle should be secure at the top & bottom, with sides open.

There are many ways to tie your ribbon wraps!

I adore the front-bow used in this Moonstitch Grosgrain Ribbon.

Up your elegance by adding a Satin back-bow for formal dances, black-tie events, or even your wedding day!
I also tried the Satin bow placed on the side (over ankles) and loved it.

Perhaps you don’t want to “commit” to hot gluing the felt circle inside your shoe?
No biggie! You can ‘fake’ the look by tying ribbon under your foot!

Or skip tying it under-the-foot and simply tie around your ankle.
I truly LOVE this double-bow look! Especially in polka dots

    Good grief, Janica… your fancy-schmancy ribbon-wrap shoe ideas are awesome! And I love the ankle-only wraps, too! I have the thickest ankles in the world, despite my tiny wrists, and at first I was thinking that I wouldn’t want to draw attention to them, but then I wondered if the ribbon would “disguise” my freakish ankles?! It’s worth a shot!

    Thank you for sharing! xoxo
