Lion head shoes DIY




Here's how the shoes looked before the treatment
Le scarpe che ho usato come base prima del trattamento

I've taken off almost all the embellishes and i've sewn a tiny chain on the front of the shoes
Ho denudato le scarpe delle perline e delle decorazioni e ho cucito una catenella sul davanti
I've sewn three chains at the back to decorate the heel
ho cucito tre catenelle che dondolano sul tacco

I've turned these tapestry nails into beads and i've glued them onto the ankle strap
ho trasformato questi chiodi da tappezzeria in perline e li ho incollati sulle scarpe
I've glued the lion heads wih shoe glue
ho incollato la testa del leone sulle scarpe con una colla forte


Tapestry nails, chains and drawer pullers are the ingredients taken at the hardware store for these animalier shoes. The inspiration are the eighties:the colors chosen (black an gold), the lion head and the excessive embellishes. What do you think of the result?


Chiodini da tappezzeria, catene e i pomelli per i cassetti sono gli ingredienti, tutti presi in ferramenta per queste scarpe sul tema animalier. L'ispirazione sono gli anni 80 nei colori scelti, nero e dorato e nelle decorazioni appariscenti. Che ne pensate del risultato?
