flower shoe clips

Peeking out from underneath a dress, flower-adorned shoes are the perfect accessory. These simple silk-flower embellishments are a lovely way to personalize your shoes. To adorn shoes, glue a silk flower onto a shoe clip with a hot-glue gun, using a dime-sized dollop to ensure the flowers stay on. Slip a flower clip onto each shoe. A single large daisy or sunflower is plenty for some shoes -- for others, try lining up a handful of delicate violets or other small blossoms.
