How to Make Silver Boot Covers

Embrace the Renaissance spirit with this silver-accented boot top accessory. One size fits most children. Pair with a black corset bodysuit or cowboy hat for out-of-this-world costume.

Since Queen Bey shared her Virgo season wish for her concertgoers and fans to wear silver, they've been flocking to her shows in droves dressed head-to-toe in shimmering metallics. From mirrored over-the-knee boots to crystal fringed Western-style styles, these sparkly accessories have cemented themselves as the quintessential Beyhive fashion piece. They can be worn alone or layered with other glittery metallic fashions, like a mirrored bustier top and silver mesh scarf or kimono.

Whether you're creating a futuristic robot costume, a GoGo girl or a hippie chick, these silver boot covers are just what your outfit needs to make a statement. They also add an extra touch of glitz to a silver unicorn or fairytale princess costume, or they can be added as a finishing touch to a sequin mermaid costume.

How to Make Silver Boot Covers

To make your own sparkling silver boot covers, cut a length of elastic that goes across the sole of the shoe (roughly where your big toe joint is) and attach it to the bottom of the fabric. You will then need to pin and stitch the seam, leaving allowance for the hem. Turn the boot cover the right way in and give it a test run to ensure that it fits comfortably and that there are no unsightly gaps or pulls at the seams. If it's not as snug as you'd like, trim the fabric and re-sew the front seam.

Next, use a dry-erase marker to mark lines on both sides of the boot tops where you'd like to position the fringe. You'll need to eyeball it a bit as the calf section will widen slightly as you apply each layer of fringe. When you're happy with positioning, carefully glue each length of fringe along the marked guides to the foam, being careful not to get any glue on the top of the ankle.

For a glitzy addition, use iron-on rhinestone trim over the top fringe layer. Allow the adhesive to dry before wearing and enjoying your Beyhive-inspired silver outfit.
