I shared the full Pom Pom Sandal and Matching Collar DIY on my blog earlier this month. You can also watch the full video tutorial. It’s great project to tackle this week. There are so many Summer sandals on clearance as Fall merchandise arrives, so you should be able to find a cheap pair to customize. The matching dog collar could be done on any color collar to match the sandals you find. Although dog collars are not really seasonal, I’m sure you can find affordable options at Target or a local pet store.

DIY Pom Pom Gladiator Sandals + Matching Dog Collar

Below is my inspiration photo for the sandals. I think I did a great job of replicating them! These sandals sell on Etsy for over $100, so completing mine and a matching dog collar for less than $25 is a steal!

I love this photo of all my supplies set out on the counter! It helps to lay out all the odds and ends you gather for this DIY so you can see what color dominates (for me it’s pink) and split the colors evenly amongst the 2 sandals and the collar. Below is a close up of the extra holes I drilled into the collar, even spaced all the way around. I used a power drill, because I love my drill, but also because I don’t own an awl or leather hole punch which are really the right tools for this. You gotta use what you got!
