One of my favorite blogs for beautiful and chic wedding ideas, greenweddingshoes.com, has created a DIY that you can use for every occasion: shoe clips.
I have no intention on creating these for a wedding, still, they are perfect for dressing up any plain shoe. It’s almost like buying new shoes (just for a fraction of the price).
One spool of ribbon
Hot glue gun with glue
Shoe clips (you can order these online or search for them at your local craft store)
Once you have all your materials, follow these step-by-step directions courtesy of greenweddingshoes.com:
Step 3: Hot glue the two ends of each 8 inch and 7 inch strip together, so that you have four hoops. Stand each hoop up, so you can look through it. Put a dot of hot glue on the inside middle of each hoop, and push the top and bottom together so it makes a symmetrical eight shape.
Step 5: Make two stacks. Each stack should have the 4 ¼ inch flat ribbon at the bottom, with a larger hoop in the middle and the smaller hoop on top. Put a small glue dot in the middle of the ribbons to keep them together.
Step 7: Cut two nickel sized circles out of felt, and hot glue the felt circles onto the flat tops of the shoe clips. Apply glue to the bottom of the bow and glue your bow to the felt on the shoe clip.
