How To Make Your Shoelaces Cool
Want to know how to make yuor shoelaces cool? Cool shoelaces can transform a pair of shoes from drab to fab! Shoe laces are basically accessories for your shoes. Anyone can have a trendy pair of shoes, but it takes a real fashionista to make any pair of shoes chic. If you want to make your shoelaces cool, follow some simple steps.
You will need the following to make shoelaces cool:
- Rhinestones or glitter
- Puffy paint
- Glue gun and glue sticks
- Choose a color. Purchase several pairs of plain white shoelaces to make cool. These are very inexpensive. Pick up a pair to match all your shoes. Decide what colors you would like the laces to be. Dye is available in a wide variety of colors. It is easier to dye shoelaces in a pot of water.
- Prepare the dye. Add one color of dye at a time to a pot of boiling water. Stir the dye. Reduce the heat and allow the dye to stop boiling. You can then submerge the shoelaces into the dye. Let them soak for several minutes before removing. Allow to dry. You can soak half the shoelace in one color, then soak the other half in a different color. You could also create a tie-die effect by using rubber bands to section off the shoelaces before soaking them in dye. Be creative!
- Once you have the desired color, decorate the laces. You may want to lace the shoes before decorating since embellishments may be difficult to fit through the holes. Try unique ways of lacing the shoes to make them look cool. Once the laces are in, add rhinestones using your hot glue gun. Rhinestones are available in a multitude of colors. If you prefer, you can add glitter instead. You can even use both! Draw shapes or outline the rhinestones with your puffy paint. The sky is the limit when it comes to making cool shoelaces!
