High heels have a long fashion history. Several short monarchs brought them into fashion and quickly made them a status symbol. Marie Antoinette was famous for her shoe collection. Though the French Revolution put a damper on heels for a while, they soon showed up in America as an import from Paris brothels. Before long, the high heel became a legitimate fashion statement for women everywhere. Today, heels remain a focal point in fashion and appear on all sorts of accessories and decor, in addition to on women's feet.
Paper High Heel Crafts
Create decorative high heels using a variety of paper craft methods. Enlist the ancient art of origami to fold intricate little high heels. Use tag board or other stiff paper to cut and paste together high heels. Even try creating papier mache high heels to decorate.
High Heel Picture Crafts
Pictures of high heels can be fun to use as decorations or to colour and decorate. Create a silhouette of your favourite high heels, matt it and frame it for a chic wall decoration. Print outlines of high heels for children to colour, or let them decorate the pictures with glitter, buttons, beads and other embellishments.
Decorated High Heel Crafts
Instead of embellishing pictures of heels, try embellishing the real thing. Take a basic pair of high heels and add buttons, bows, beads, fringe, flowers, feathers or paint to create a totally new look. Also try creating your own shoe clips for a removable embellishment, or make fun laces from interesting ribbon and string to update a pair of older heels.
Designer High Heel Crafts
If you love a pair of high heels from the latest runway shows, but you can't afford the designer price tag, try to copy the design. Find a basic pair of heels from a discount or thrift store that matches the shape of the designer shoe. Use paint, stitching and other embellishments to echo the designer version at a bargain price.
