DIY Tacks

Alright, a lot of people on lookbook asked me how I made my shoes. I just bought some thumb tacks ($3 a pack) and hammered them in. The end. Haha
Okay, this is a bit more hard to explain.. I made a line of tacks down the back of the shoe so that I could start each side from the same point.. so everything would line up. Make sense?
I made sure they were overlapping just slightly. Put them the same distance apart. I started from the back and worked my way to the front on each side. Then I did the next row the same.┬áhaha ugh I’m bad at this. Hopefully thats a good enough explanation.
