LACE UP BALLET FLATS (DIY)

Holidays are ending (only 2 days then...work, ha!) and this is why I fear September so much: coming back to ordinary life and commitments, to the alarm clock (oh my), to all those things that make us wanna go back to sea, sun and no thoughts. Despite all these negative sides, September has also something exciting to me: it's the best time of the year to plan new projects, find new ideas and feel refreshed. This is why I am working on new DIYs and what you see today is the first of them. DIY ballet flats and you're ready to fight the return! // Le vacanze stanno finendo (solo 2 giorni poi...lavoro, ah!) e questo è il motivo per cui temo Settembre così tanto: tornare alla vita di sempre, agli impegni, alla sveglia (cielo), a tutte quelle cose che ci fanno rimpiangere il mare, il sole e la mente sgombra dai pensieri. Nonostante tutti gli aspetti negativi, devo ammettere che Settembre ha anche qualcosa di stimolante per me: è il miglior periodo dell'anno per progammare nuovi progetti, trovare nuove idee e sentirsi ricaricati. Ecco perché sto lavorando a nuovi fai da te e ciò che vedete oggi è il primo di tanti lavoretti. Ballerine con nastri fai da te e siete pronte ad affrontare questo mese!

For these lace up ballet flats you'll only need a pair of flats, ribbon and glue.
Yeah, perfect DIY for lazyness post-holidays!

Per queste ballerine con nastri vi occorrerà solo un paio di ballerine, nastro e colla.
Sì, il fai da te perfetto per la pigrizia post-vacanze!

You need // Vi occorre:

- Flats. // Ballerine.
- 2,5 m (98 in) of ribbon. // 2,5 m di nastro.

How to // Come procedere:

1)
Cut the ribbon in 4 equal parts. // Tagliate il nastro in 4 parti uguali.


2)
Glue 2 ribbons for each flat, on the right and left internal sides, about 5 cm (1,9 in) from the bottom. //
Incollate 2 nastri ad ogni ballerina, ai lati interni destro e sinistro, lasciando circa 5 cm dal tallone.


3)
Voilà!

Now that you are a modern ballerina, you need the right dress to match with your new shoes!
Luckily I can help you finding the right one: I discovered Dressthat and its beautiful dresses.
Look at their homecoming dresses online!
//
Ora che siete delle moderne ballerine, vi occorre l'abito adatto!
Fortunatamente posso aiutarvi: ho scoperto da poco Dressthat e i suoi abiti.
Guardate i vestiti che hanno!
I felt in love with these... // Io mi sono innamorata di questi...

 

 

 

So lovely, not? New shoes and new dress and you're ready to go!
Happy September, guys!
//
Adorabili, no? Nuove scarpe e nuovo abito e siete a posto!
Buon Settembre a tutti!

  16. I like wearing ballet flats, but I am not sure if I´d feel comfortable in the lace up version.
