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).

All of these darling little earrings are hand made by JewelryVixen on Etsy. I love how they’re either very simple and delicate or extremely ornate with impeccable little details. Did you notice the earrings with baskets filled with moss? Those little blue flowers would make a great “something blue” and a nice little pop of color on the big day.
