i have this thing where i can't walk in heels that don't have buckles. they can be the correct size, but i just can't seem to keep them on my feet. my mom got me a really nice pair of shoes from a thrift store, but of course they were buckle-less pumps. so, i got this brilliant idea i'm going to share with you!
|before- plain pumps|
I poked a hole with a hole punch. They were surprisingly easy to poke through! Then carved little x's with an exacto knife until the hole was large enough to fit the grommet. I used my grommet kit. Now, someone gave me a grommet kit a couple years ago, and I forgot about it until recently. I suspect it's missing pieces, and an instruction manual, but I just used a regular hammer and my ingenuity and everything worked out fine. I then threaded a silk ribbon through it and tied it in a bow. Now my shoes stay on until I'm ready to
take them off!

|to make them extra trendy, i painted the bottom with 2 coats of glitter glue|
Now I'm stylin!
