Wedding is a special day of everyone’s life, so people want to look gorgeous at their wedding. They spend a lot of time selecting a wedding dress, shoes, and many other accessories to look gorgeous at their wedding. You can also give an awesome touch-up to your look by making your shoes different and outstanding.
There are several ways for changing up your shoes, which are perfect for your wedding shoes, rehearsal dinner shoes, shoes for your bridesmaid, or also for an upcoming holiday party. It is ideal to find a wholesale wedding and craft product supplier for buying ribbons, fabrics, chair covers, table skirts, organza favor bags, silk flower petals, and many others.
Below, I’m going to share some DIY ways to change up your wedding shoes that will easily turn an old pair of shoes into a new pair.
- Bow Shoe Chip
Supplies that You Will Need:
- One spool of ribbon
- Hot glue gun
- Shoe clips
Start by cutting your ribbon. For this, you will need two strips: 8 inches, two strips: 7 inches, two strips: 4 ¼ inches, and two strips: 2 ½ inches ribbons.
After cutting the ribbon, put the 4 ¼ inches and 2 ½ inches strip to the side for now.
After that, hot glue the two ends of each 8-inch and 7-inch strip together. And now, you will have four hoops. Position each hoop up, so you can look through it. Use hot glue on the inside middle of each loop, and push the top and bottom together so it styles an equal eight shape.
Now, take the 4 ¼ inch strips and cut small triangles out of all four ends.
In this step, start to make two stacks. Make sure, each stack should have the 4 ¼ inches flat ribbon at the bottom, with a larger hoop in the middle and the smaller hoop on the top. Use glue in the middle of the ribbons for keeping them together.
Now, wrap your 2 ½ inch ribbon around the middle of your stack and glue it together at the bottom for making a really easy and pretty bow.
At last, cut the nickel-sized circle out of the left and glue the felt circles onto the flat tops of the shoe clip. You should also apply hot glue to the bottom of the bow and glue your bow to the felt on the shoe clip.
- Flower Shoe Clip
Materials that You Will Need:
- Your choice of fabric
- Matching thread
- Hot glue and hot glue gun
- Shoe clips
- Petal template
How to Make:
For making this shoe clip, begin by printing the template provided and trace the outline of the template on your fabric until you have 20 traced flowers. And cut out your flowers.
Now, you will need to divide the 20 petals into two masses of 10 and purposely stagger each flower on top of one another in its stack.
In this step, thread your needle and sew an X in the center of one of your stacks of flowers.
After that, pleat your stack in half from top to bottom, and place in a few stitches around the fold so the crease will hold. Crinkle your stack again, so that it is now ¼ of its unique size. Stitch 4-6 stitches sideways the open fold, so it tightly remnants folded. After completing this, you can kind of deploy the method the petals lay and fold-out by hand. Repeat these steps for making the second flower.
In this step, begin by cutting two nickel-sized circles out of felt, and hot glue the felt circles onto the flat tops of the shoe clips. Use glue to the bottoms of the fabric flower and glue your flower to the felt on the shoe clip. Your flower probably has a pretty pointy corner from where you have folded it twice, so you will need to push the flower down very hard on the felt. It will help it open up, look fuller, and more lay flatter.
Now, you are done and can attach your shoe clip to the front, side, or heel of any flats or high heels.
These are some pretty ways for making beautiful shoe clips. You can find one of the best wedding and craft product suppliers for buying wholesale ribbon, tulle fabric, deco mesh, chair cover, tablecloth, favor bag, and any others.
