Using colorful yarn scraps tie the pom poms to the twisted cords of the Huarache sandals with square knots.
You can also use buttons, tassels and beads to embellish your boho sandals. I used plastic buttons in green, mint green, pink and yellow …
… large and small golden metal buttons, my DIY Indian beaded tassels in orange and gold.
And DIY beaded tassels in blue which I made some years ago for my 1910s peacock evening gown.
I also used turquoise ceramic beads, simple wire hibiscus flowers in petrol which I made some years ago as hair ornaments, a crochet ornament made with yarn scraps …
… friendship bracelets, a tatting sample and a malachite necklace.
For even more boho flair, wear the pom pom sandals with ankle bracelets. I’m wearing Indian ankle bracelets in gold.
