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

  • Scissors

  • Hot glue gun with glue

  • Felt

  • Ruler

  • 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:

Greenweddingshoes shoe ClipsStep 1: First you will need to cut the ribbon. You will need the following:
• Two strips: 8 inches, Two strips: 7 inches, Two strips: 4 ¼ inches, Two strips: 2 ½ inches

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 6: Wrap your 2 ½ in ribbon around the middle of your stack and glue it together at the bottom to make a really easy and pretty bow.
