DIY: Back of the shoe clip

Hi! It's Jenny Bevlin bringing you a super easy and stylish DIY project to change the look of any shoe. I was thinking the other day about shoe clips and how the front of the shoe has all the fun. Enter...back of the shoe clips!

I was racking my brain the other day to come up with a way to make clips for the back of my shoes. I knew there had to be something that I could put together to make them. I stopped thinking about them for awhile, then it suddenly hit me when I was doing my hair one day...bobbie pins. I cut part of the bobbie with cutting pliers, attached a bow and back of the shoe clips were born! What you need to make these shoe clips: 

  • Cutting Pliers
  • Bobbie Pins
  • Hot Glue Gun
  • Fun Embellishments: Bows, Pom Poms or Flowers (You can make any of these yourself, or you can buy them pre-made at the craft store)


Use the pliers to cut off part of the front of the bobbie pin. How much you cut off depends on the length of the embellishment you are attaching. 
Glue your embellishment to the front part of the bobbie pin that is left. Slip the bobbie over the back of your shoe. 

Cute, right??
