Bedazzled Shoe Clips DIY

Five dollars for Manolo Blahnick’s? – that’s right. Do I have your attention now? Usually fit for commoners as weddings splurges, the coveted Manolo heel is a classic in high style that eludes many closets based on their price. However, for less than a Starbucks latte you can have the same style as Carrie Bradshaw on a Sunday.

Okay – so I tricked you. You can’t get Manolo Blahnick’s literally for less than five dollars – or least i don’t know where you would find such a place & if I did I would definitely be too selfish to share. However, for a trip into your craft drawer & an old necklace that needs a new life – you can create custom shoe clips that create the same iconic look.




Earrings Clips

Hot Glue Gun



  1. Gather your materials and plug in that hot glue gun.
  2. Cut a piece of felt into the desired shape. Mine was a circle (as seen to the left).
  3. Once you have decided on the configuration of your gems, hot glue

    them in place
  4. I trimmed around the edges of my shoe clip design to remove the excess felt.
  5. Taking one earring backing, glue the flat side to the top of your statement piece, as seen below.
  6. Clip onto your shoes !

I really love these shoe clips because they give a new look to a shoe without ruining it. This means you don’t have to commit to a style. The options are limitless with what belongs on a shoe clip. This could range from pom-poms to bows. ….& the best part is if you only wear it once, it cost you less than last night’s uber.

& If you’re not crafDIY like me, here are some really great bedazzled shoes:

    I have been using clip earrings for many, many years. Clipped on shoes, hats, and necklaces, specially single earrings that lost their mates.

    When I make shoe clips, I get shoe clip blanks because they are flat and do not hurt my foot. E6000 glue is permanent, but takes 24 hours to set. Look for junk earrings at estate sales and yard sales or buy inexpensive brooches. Pretty bows always look good. When the heels of your shoes get scuffed, make creative cover-ups from wide sequin trim that is glued on to add new life to the shoes and a little unexpected glam as you walk away.
