Pintresting: A How to Guide: Shoe Clips

Anne Yoskoski, Advertising Manager/Asst. Life Editor

Admit it, everyone is on Pinterest. It’s chock-full of amazing ideas and simple crafts that cause everyone to take one look at the picture with the “it’s so easy!” description and declare, “I could do that.” After some severe craft fails (and successes), I , Anne Yoskoski, decided it was time to share these experiences with everyone, hopefully saving at least one oven, set of eyebrows, trip to the doctor for stitches and a carpet in the process.
Shoe Clips

This craft was by far the easiest I have ever completed from Pinterest.


1. Bobby pins or clip-on-earring backs

2. Hot glue gun

3. Pin/broach, any item you want to use.


1. Place the item you wish to glue face down and add a dab of glue.

2. Attach to the bobby pin/earring back

3. Let dry.

While this is the simplest craft I have done, it was worth it to jazz up a pair of boring flats. I would recommend the earring backs over the bobby pins, because with a larger surface the object will not fall off as easily.

By investing a little in some nice bows or any sort of trinket, you can now take one pair of boring, plain flats and give them a makeover every time you wear them.
