DIY Ballerina Shoes

Today I'm going to teach you guys how to make these ballet flats even more ballerina-y with a simple tutorial!
Incidentally, you can find this dress for sale in my shop.
So first of all, you need some flats. I got mine at Target. You'll also need elastic in the same color as your shoes. For this reason, I reccommend using black or white shoes, because those are the easiest colors of elastic to find! These would look super cute in pink, though.
1. Wrap the elastic around your foot in the shoe as shown, and cut it so it's the right length.
 2. Now you'll need to cut a loop to go on the heel of your shoe, so make sure the loop is the right size for your elastic to fit through it! Cut a smaller piece to the right length.
3. See? This is where you'll be putting it!
 4. Now take your short loop piece and put hot glue on one end. Glue the loop together.
 5. Glue the loop to the inside of your shoe!
 6. Take your longer piece and thread it through the heel loop.
 7. Criss cross the longer piece as shown, and glue each end to the inside of your shoe...
 8. so!
 And there you have some cute ballerina shoes! These are super comfy to wear and don't slip and slide on your feet. I'd love to see the results if you guys give it a try!
