DIY: Felt Poppy Shoe Clips

Shoe clips are a quick and simple way to customize your shoes for any outfit. Making your own can save a few bucks and allow you to really personalize them!

What you need for these:

Old hair clips (2)
Circles of felt-- 2 each in small, med, and large
Needle & thread
Beads of your choice
Hot glue gun with glue stick


1. Sew your felt circles together, one on top of the other-- largest to smallest, using a loose stitch.
2. To create a slightly rippled petal look, tug on the thread from the back to tighten it. Then, knot the thread and snip off the extra.
3. Sew a few beads in the center to finish the flower.
4. Place a dot of hot glue on either end of your clip, and press felt poppy onto glue to secure.

You can clip your poppies in your hair, too!
