{ i spy a diy - shoe sugar }

Shoe clips are making a crafty comeback like nobody's business.  Have you noticed?  I feel like I'm seeing them everywhere lately!  That really had me wanting to make some shoe sugar of my own.  I had a few spare minutes to make these last week, and they could not have been easier!  Now I have two pretty options for dressing up my $5 clearance Target suede flats.
 Um, yes please. ;)

Pin ItMy apologies about that terrible cell phone pic of those Jolee's boutique flowers. I picked those up at Michael's for 99 cents.  They were screaming to be adorning some cute ballet flats, in my opinion.  I picked up my shoe clip hardware from here.  The sparkley clip-ons you see in #2 were fashioned from some cheapo Forever 21 earrings that I'd had for a while. I had to use epoxy for those guys because hot glue just wasn't going to cut it when trying to adhere metal-to-metal.  

Need some more shoe clip DIY inspiration?  There are so many lovely ideas out there!

Not a 'clip', but a darling shoe refashion, nonetheless
