How to embellish shoes

My aim with this blog is to share what I consider easy ways to spruce up existing clothes or accessories. Or to show items I have made that don’t require much skill.

There are wonderful crafting websites with some astounding ideas. But I have to admit, turning a pair of jeans into a jacket seems like far too much of a schlep and while the end result might be edgy and creative, my choice of dress tends toward a more classic and practical style.

In this picture is a pair of flat pumps with a hair accessory attached to them. I bought these clip-in flowers and found they were a bit big. I never quite got the hang of wearing them in my hair. So I removed the clip part and glued them to these shoes with a strong adhesive.

The Greenie Galleries at the top of this page have 100s of photos of older and newer projects showing multiple ways to make your own clothing and accessories. There are also ideas to recycle or upcycle.

See you soon.
