DIY: Turn Your Wrecked TOMS Into Sandals

I love shoes.

I mean, I really love shoes.

I guess in that way, I am a very typical teenage girl!

So when my beloved TOMS started to show a little too much love, I knew their end was near. But wait! What if they could be saved?! I grabbed some tools and my camera and documented their journey from wrecked TOMS to cool, hipster sandals. If you too have a pair of shoes that need a 2nd lease on life, give it a try! I show you step by step right below.

If you decide to dive into the DIY world and turn YOUR wrecked TOMS into sandals, I would love to see a photo!
