DIY Basic Doll Wedge Heels - Crafting Tutorial

Ciao lovelies! Today I've got a simple doll shoe tutorial for you all!


I used to think making doll shoes was too hard, but after I played with some foam, and worked through it, I figured out an easy way to make doll wedge heels. (Please note, this technique may be used elsewhere, I'm not sure. I'm not claiming to be the first person to ever think of this because I'm sure someone else has thought of this too.)

What you'll need:
A doll (for measurement, I'm using a monster high doll, Ari Hauntington)
Thin sheet of craft foam
Thick foam (I'm using a square of foam from a dollar tree puzzle mat. This can be found in the kid's/toy section)
Hot glue gun and hot glue sticks (I only used part of one stick for this)
Scissors
Also you'll want lace/ribbon which I forgot to include in this photo.

The steps:
1. Using the doll's' foot, measure and cut out two wedge shapes from the thick foam.
2. Use the doll's foot to measure and cut four soles from the thin foam. Use two of the soles and attach to the wedges. (We will use the other two soles in step 4)
3. Glue thin foam around the back and sides of the wedge.
4. Glue down the other soles (or strips of foam) as shown.

Lastly, glue ribbon or lace on (make sure to make it loose enough for your doll's foot to slip in, like shown):

And you're done! Of course you can make these fancier with more embellishment, but this is how to make the basic form.
Thanks for reading!

 I hope you enjoy making lots of doll shoes!!!
