How to fix faux leather boots

There are two things I know to be certain. First, leather boots are expensive. Second, faux leather boots tatter easily.

I found a great way to fix your faux leather boots for extremely cheap!

On the left, my boots before I spruced them up. On the right, practically a new pair of boots!

Here’s what you need:

1. paint that matches the color of your boots

2. Modge Podge

3. 2 small paint brushes

First, you take one of your small brushes and paint a thin layer of Modge Podge on the site of the tears. The most important thing about this is to make sure you let the Modge Podge dry completely.

Second, mix your paint colors so that it will match your boots as closely as possible. Then paint multiple layers of the paint onto the tears. Do your best to blend the paint into the actual color of the boot so that no change in color is visible. Also, make sure to let this coat dry completely.

Lastly, paint a final coat of Modge Podge over the area you painted.

Let the boots dry and then they are like brand new!
