Shoe clips can turn an plain looking pair of shoes into something stylish. Shoe clips can also update and modernise an old pair of shoes. Shoe clips are available at shoe and department stores, but you can create your own custom shoe clips to match any outfit, style and colour. Buy shoe clip hardware at craft supply stores and make custom decorations out of a variety of craft materials.
Felt Shoe Clip
Create a shoe clip out of felt. Cut a flower shape out of felt. Make another flower shape that is slightly smaller than the first out of a contrasting coloured felt. Stack the two flower shapes and sew them together in the centre with a button on the top. Cut a leaf shape out of green felt to glue or sew to the bottom of the flower. Make two flowers and glue them to shoe clip hardware.
Wire Shoe Clips
Make shoe clips out of wire, beads and other simple materials. Twist a wire into a simple shape such as a flower or a star. Then add beads to the wire and twist the ends to prevent the beads from slipping. Glue one end of the shape to shoe clip hardware to create a custom clip. Make another wired shape for the other shoe.
Ribbon Shoe Clips
Make a bow out of ribbon to use as a shoe clip. Choose a ribbon that is wide enough to cover the hardware casing of the shoe clip. Make two bows and glue them to shoe clips. Create a shoe clip to use with a child's party dress by tying several strands of various coloured curling ribbon together and curling the ends. Glue the knot to a shoe clip and trim the ends of ribbon so the ends do not extend past the shoe and pose a tripping hazard.
Other Shoe Clip Crafts
Use various materials to create shoe clips. Glue a decorative bead or button onto shoe clip hardware to create a custom look. Consider gluing silk flower bud heads to shoe clips to match a summer sun dress. Another material to use in creating shoe clips is craft foam. Cut the foam into a decorative shape and glue it to the shoe clip. Make a matched pair for the other shoe.
