I found these old red, straw wedges in the back of my closet and decided that I should re-vamp them with a more updated and stylish look. I started by first using the Black Acrylic Paint (found at any arts and craft store for very cheap) and painting the sides and the straps. I didn't paint the inside to avoid the paint coming off on my foot. I waited for them to dry and then I hot glued feathers on the ends of them. The whole process was quick, easy and it satisfied my need for new shoes at that moment. I got great feedback when I wore them to my school, and my classmates were shocked when I told them that I made them.
