Five-Minute Shoe Clips

Tuesday, May 20, 2014
A few weeks back, a friend and I were doing a little window shopping downtown when we spotted some super cute pumps with beaded, floral embellishments. My first thought was that I needed them in my life, while my second thought was that Mr. AiF would murder me if I brought yet another pair home. Third thought? You guessed it — DIY! 

SUPPLIES: FLORAL PENDANT NECKLACE | PLIERS | CLIPS | E-6000 GLUE
TIME: 5 MINUTES (ABOUT 30 MINUTES TO DRY) | DIFFICULTY LEVEL: EASY
I had seen this necklace at Forever 21 and filed the memory of it away until my little shoe-clip light bulb moment. So off I went to grab it for this project, discovering that all the necklaces in this style were missing at least one stone — guess who no longer felt remorse over buying something to just turn around and dismantle it? This girl. So step one after procuring said necklace: Take that sucker apart.
The next step is to adhere a shoe clip to the base of each pendant using some E-6000. Side note: I sourced my clips from Michaels, but you can find them at other craft and jewelry supply stores... Anyway, after pressing firmly on the clips to help them adhere to the pendant, let them dry for at least 30 minutes before taking them out for a stroll (but really, the longer the better).

So to summarize: Easy, affordable and a great way to get extra mileage out of your shoes (as well as something to do with all those busted-up necklaces) — not too shabby for a five minute DIY, huh?
