DIY Summer Foot Jewelry

In our part of the world, it’s almost time once again to feel the soft green grass underneath your bare feet. But just because it’s almost that “bare foot” time of year, doesn’t mean your feet have to be…well…bare! Dress up those bare feet with some awesome, cheap DIY foot jewelry!

Gotta love having your feet on the net! Right? (Nope.)

Anyway, this jewelry is super simple to make. It can be made of several different combos of string and beads. I’m going to let you in on how to make one with glass beads and waxed leather jewelry string.

To start, you’ll need 2 pieces of waxed leather string. Each needs to be long enough to put your center toe in the center of the string and still be able to pull the ends up to your thigh (about 48″ to 60″). Take the two pieces and wrap them around your center toe. Tie the pieces together just below the toe to make a “ring”.

Place 1 bead on each of the outer strings. Tie again just below these beads.

Keep placing beads on the outer strings and tying a knot below them until you have five sets of beads on the strings. After you tie your last know under the fifth set of beads, separate the strings and take 2 on each side of your foot and tie in the back. Remember to slightly extend your foot while you do this! Too little slack will cause the foot jewelry to be uncomfortable but too much slack will make it too loose when your foot is in it’s normal position.

This should be your end result!

There are so many different materials and variations you can use to personalize your foot jewelry! Hemp, ribbon, yarn, leather, beads, shells, etc…Be creative and experiment!
