DIY: Oh the Power of Shoe Clips

February 12, 2011 § Leave a comment

It probably goes without saying that shoes clips are a great, inexpensive way to spruce up any pair of shoes. It’s an easy way to add “something blue”- perhaps a blue vintage cameo? Or if you’re looking to help your bridesmaids save money but want some uniformity, they can wear simple black shoes they already have in their closet and all clip on the same shoe clips that match your wedding palette. They’re also incredibly easy to make and would be a fun DIY activity for a wedding party with the girls.

Several of these are actually available for very reasonable prices on Etsy. However, if you’re good with your hands or are just good with directions, there are tons of sources for how to make various shoe clips (3 of the best I’ve found are linked below). Most of them just involve glueing bows, old jewelry or bunched fabric to a clip (even a sturdy hair clip could work in some cases).

There are so many more images I wanted to include but I had to draw the line somewhere, so poke through these sources for more inspiration! Sources: Etsy, No.144, PistolPoppy, Flikr
