Flower Shoe Clips

Want to update a pair of flats? This took me no time and cost less than $5. You probably have all the supplies on hand!



Materials:
Felt (I used stiffened)
Small flowers
Bling
Paperclips



Directions:


Cut two circles out of felt, a little bigger than a quarter. 


Pull the heads off the flowers. Glue bling in the center of the flower


Then take the bottom off the flower


So it looks like this: 


Then chop some of the plastic stem off, so it's not so tall


Smear glue all over the back, like so:


 Then stick 'em on the felt circle. I put three on each circle


 The top of one and bottom of the other:


Next stick a paperclip in there. YES, a paperclip. 


Finally slip them on your shoes for a new look and a little sparkle! I used smaller clips and couldn't feel them when I walked.



What kind of shoe clips do you want to make?
