DIY CHAIN BOOTS

Carrying on from my mention of chained boots yesterday, there’s nothing better than a quick and simple update to your favourite wardrobe staple to change its look entirely and double the wearability. These removable boot straps were so simple to make and looked perfect worn with a pair of black ankle boots.

MATERIALS YOU WILL NEED:

1. Measure and cut your chain so it is long enough to encircle the front of the boot. DIY Chain Boots

2. Cut the back strap to size and then add some glue to each end.
