Fall Overhaul: Mod Podge Boots

Pin It
Fall Overhaul: Mod Podge Boots

Re-vamp an old pair of boots with a little Mod Podge and uber cute fabric. It is easy...I swear. They took me about 1.5 hours to make with a 5 hour dry time. I so wanna do a pair of cowboy boots.....yee haw!


Materials:
Smooth Pleather or Leather Boots
Fabric - Westminster - ZaZu by Tina Givens
Scrap Paper
Pencil
Scissors
Mod Podge - Fabric
Foam Paintbrush


Let's Do This!

Begin with a pair of smooth pleather or leather boots

Make a paper pattern of the boot. I like to tape the paper to the boot and sketch the shape with a pencil. Add a little extra to the length and the back-side seam.

Trace the pattern to the backside of the fabric. Be sure to position the pattern over your desired print pattern.

Cut.

Oh La La! Here is the magic podge.

Brush the Mod Podge to the back of the fabric piece.

Position on the boot. Smooth ant air bubbles with your finger.

Trim the over hang.

Begin the zipper side. You will need to make two different patterns for the zipper side.

Apply to the boot.

Repeat pattern, mod podge and apply the second zipper side.

Overlap the backside. Trim to smooth. Allow to dry!

Finished!

Go Make Some!

Then run around town and
show off your re-vamped boots!

When people ask,
"where did you get your boots?"
tell them you made them!!!

  23. I wonder if this would hold up in rain?

    ReplyDelete
  24. Hi Tanya. I don't think they are rain proof! LOL But you can always coat them with a top coat of Mod Podge outdoor formula.

    They do hold up pretty good - I made a pair last year and they are still going strong.
