Easy sandal makeover- DIY pom pom shoe clips




I have a couple of pairs of thong sandals that I love to wear, but sometimes I think they are a little plain. Last year, I intended to add a little something to my black pair, but just didn't get around to it. When I came across this idea from Setting for Four, I was glad I had not done the previous makeover I had in mind. What I was originally going to do would have been permanent. Shoe clips are a genious idea! I can add the flowers when I want, or leave them off. So I tried my hand at making my own.

Here are my flowers. I cut eight circles for each one and pinched the middles and stitched them together, one by one as I pinched the middles.



I couldn't decide if I might want to add one or two to each shoe, so I made four flowers and I have more options. Each flower has a clip earring back (purchased from Joanns) added to the back. That's all that was available here.  I have since ordered some regular shoe clips so I can add some bling to some fall flats.

Here are my sandals before:

After with one flower clip:

I love how two clips look like a ruffle.



Thanks for checking out another fun easy craft. I'll be linking up here:
