I had an epiphany over Easter weekend, and I am here to share the results with you. I love shoes…. Almost as much as I love DIY. I was looking for the ‘perfect’ shoes to finish off an outfit and had no luck finding them. That’s when I decided to improvise. So, I made a bunch of these…
Shoe clips! This is a super simple way to dress up any pair of shoes. If you have girls like me, they will love these too! All you need is a little glue!
I will quickly show you how I made the bow shoe clips, and you will see that the possibilities are endless.
You will first need a piece of ribbon like below…
I folded my ribbon like below, and hot glued each fold in the center as I went.
This folding technique works on solid and double sided ribbon. If you have ribbon that is printed on only one side, you can make 2 separate little bows and glue them together… Just as easy!
Next I used some hot glue to add fun buttons and embellishments to the center!
Finally you need to add your shoe clip! This is what they look like…
I found my shoe clips at JoAnn’s and on Amazon.
Here is a set from Amazon…
All you do is glue it to the back of your bow. I used a heavy duty craft glue like this one.
That is it! So simple, so fun and SO cute! You can clip them on any pair of shoes.
They are also super cute on flip flops!
And, like I said… The possibilities are ENDLESS! Rosettes, lace, buttons, you name it! On these I used really large gold buttons I found at JoAnn’s for half off (which of course made them even cuter)…
I just cut the shank off using end cutter pliers like this…
By the way… These are my ALL TIME favorite pliers. I use them all nearly every time I build and craft. They are amazing. Here is a great pair like them on Amazon.
After I cut the shank off, I glued the shoe clip to the back. Done. Simple!
So, now that you all have seen entirely too many photos of my feet, I will wrap it up! This is a fun and cheap way to accessorize any outfit. It’s a great craft to do with your girlfriends or your daughters… Or just by yourself
I would LOVE for you to pin and share this tutorial below! Thanks so much for stopping by! Let me know if you have any questions at all!
