DIY Shoe Clips

Shoes: Gianni Bini

My shoes now have their own accessories! These shoes clips will transform the look of your shoes from drab to fab in no time! Instead of buying new shoes, just clip on a bow or flower to your old pair. You can easily switch the clips to another pair or move it from the front to the back of the shoe for a new look. Read on for the tutorial! 

I used ear clips (used to make clip-on earrings) and E6000 adhesive, both purchased at Joann Fabrics.

Using pliers, pinch the two sides of each clip to flatten it out a bit. Flat enough so that you don't feel them, but not so flat that they won't clamp on.

If you do not flatten them out a little, you will feel the clips when you put on your shoes. You want them to be as flush with the shoe as possible, so you won’t feel any discomfort.

You can purchase your bows and/or flowers at a super affordable price from Sunshine Shoppe Supply. Remember you will need two of each. Using your E6000 adhesive, glue the clips directly onto your flowers or bows. Do this outside or in a well-ventilated area.

Allow the glue to dry before clipping onto your shoes. The instructions say to let it sit 48 hrs., but I used mine after 2!

You can clip them on to heels, flats, sandals, boots, etc. Have fun with your new shoe accessories!

  1. Great ideas! I made shoe clips out of those same black flowers! Also took a piece of fashion trim that was a series of fabric flowers attached to lace, cut the flowers off and glued several of them together to make a pin and used two of them for shoe clips.
