There are various patterns and styles of gladiator sandals. There are quality ones that are extremely expensive, however, you can still have gladiator sandals that look super cute yet very cheap and easy to make.
Necessity they say is the mother of invention. It’s all about being settled and tapping into the various resources around you.
Here’s a DIY gladiator sandal you can try this weekend.
- Flat Leather Slippers
- Chiffon Scarf
Ensure that the scarf you want to use is good quality as that is key to the success of the gladiator sandal. It is important that the scarf is oblong and lightweight.
Then use your scissors to cut the scarf into equal halves so that you have two long pieces of fabric.
Fold the scarf and slide it under the “V” of the flip flop, place the loose ends of the straps through the loop and pull tight, then equally slide the knot to the bottom of the “V” and separate the two fabric straps
Once you are done with stage 2, wrap the fabric straps around the “V” of the flip flops. There are many styles to wrap the ankle straps and you can wrap it whichever way suits you but ensure it comes out beautiful.Now you have your finished gladiator sandal.
Remember that the scarf should be considerably long depending on how long you want your gladiator lace to be so that you have enough to tie around your leg.You can pair this gladiator sandal with off-shoulder dresses, crop top, and short skirts, etc.
