DIY - Fabric flower shoe clips

I found a pair of clip earrings in the thrift store and I wanted to make something beautiful with them. Clip earrings are perfect as a base for shoe clips. So, that’s what my earrings are going to be: pretty shoe clips with fabric flowers on them!

How to make it

Lay the template on top of your fabric and cut nine flowers out of the fabric. Now follow the steps seen in the pictures below.

Step 1: fold four of the flowers twice and form a circle by gluing them one by one on the earring.  You may need to put a little glue between the layers to put them in place.
Step 2: fold four of the flowers once and form a circle by gluing them half on the previous one. The last one of the flowers will be half on the first one you glued on and half on the last one you glued on.
Step 3. fold the last flower three times and glue it to the center of the flower. Use some dots of glue to give the flower shape.

Have fun with you new fabric flower shoe clips!

    Nice project. The clip earrings are a great idea. I’m always thinking abut how to make my shoes more cutom, but never actually do it. Might actually try this technique. Thanks!
