I wanted to share these heels journey into boot-dom.  A little backstory: I wanted some green pumps for my Halloween costume (Poison Ivy) so I tried my luck at Goodwill.  I ended up coming home with some brown open toed heels. 



I thought, "Okay, I can make this work.  I'll just glue some leaves all over them and be done with it."



They turned out ...okay.  But with my green tights and everything they looked kind of out of place.  I, then, decided I needed a pair of knee super villain-y boots.  I grabbed some vinyl, my sewing machine and hot glue gun and went to work.  A little while later these were born:



Woohoo!  They're not perfect, but they'll certainly serve their purpose for my costume!  I'm very pleased at how they came out.

I like both pair you did! The leaf look is great, but I can totally see how those boots are going to rock with the Poison Ivy costume! Going to have to see some action shots Smiley

Thanks for sharing!!
