These are the it-shoe of the season. That price tag though? I’ll pass. I love a schmancy shoe as much as the next girl, but if there’s any chance I can DIY instead BUY, I will always take the DIY route. Always. For this particular pair of DIY pom pom sandals, I saved about $700 by creating them myself. Seven hundred bucks!!! Do you know many grilled cheese sandwiches you can buy with $700? A lot. And I love grilled cheese sandwiches.

If you’re on a budget but jonesing for a brand new warm weather wardrobe then follow me along this crafty tutorial. Your feet with thank you.
