New Year’s Eve coming makes a great timing for DIY I’ve been planning for some time. Handmade shoe clips are easy, removable and depending on the pattern and fabrics you choose – gems, beads, flowers, ribbons, bows – can totally change your shoes’ look. Today I present an elegant black & silver party version.
For handmade shoe clips you will need:
- shoe clips base x 2
- two small pieces of felt
- gems and beads of any type and colour
- optionally: additional decorations, I used a broken key pendant
- scissors, needle and thread
Handmade shoe clips – making of:
Place the elements on the felt and redraw the shape. Take a photo of the arraggement and cut the shape out of the felt.
Sew the clip base to the left side of the embellishment. I bought a special shoe clips on Allegro (polish eBay) but I think regular ear clips base will do the work, except you’ll have to glue it instead of sewing.
Sew the gems, the beads and the decorations one by one onto your shape.

Now repeat all steps with another decoration.
Styling DIY shoe clips
Because shoe clips are easily removable you can embellish one pair of shoes with different types of clips or use one pair of clips to decorate various types of shoes. I matched my handmade shoe clips with two pairs of plain suede heels – nude and black – but I think thay would suit some flats too. I think they both look interesting, which one do you like more?
