Showstopping Fuzzy Heels


Showstopping Fuzzy Heels

If you're sick and tired of boring shoes, you'll love these Showstopping Fuzzy Heels. Find a cheap pair of pumps and use fuzzy fabric to add texture and fun. Upcycled crafts ideas help you save money and make a huge fashion statement at the same time.



  • High heels (color of your choice but nice to select a pair that matches with your fabric)
  • Fuzzy fabric (The fuzzy fabric used has a slight stretch to it — this is important to get a good fit on the shoe.)
  • Sandpaper – fine grade
  • Measuring tape
  • Aleene’s Fabric Fusion Peel & Stick Tape
  • Aleene’s Original Tacky Glue
  • Non-stick scissors


  1. If your high heels have a slick surface, use sandpaper to lightly sand to roughen up the surface. (Note: on my heels, I did not sand the heels because I did not cover them with fabric.)
  2. Measure along bottom outside edge. Add 3″ to measurement.
  3. Measure from front toe to inside edge. Add 2″ to measurement. Cut two piece of fuzzy fabric to measurements.
  4. To help fabric from fraying, apply line of Aleene’s Tacky Glue along outside edges. Let dry.
  5. Cut Peel & Stick Tape into approximate 2″ lengths. Apply along top and bottom outside edges of shoe and along inside edge.
  6. Peel off bottom release paper on outside edge of shoe. Lay edge of fabric along seam line in shoe pressing into sticky adhesive. Continue on other side of shoe until you have glued the fabric in place along the bottom edge.
  7. Peel off top release paper on outside edge of shoe, gently pull fabric so that it is snug against the shoe and press into sticky adhesive along the top edge.
  8. Cut away excess fabric to make a clean seam at the back of shoe.
  9. Cut away excess fabric along the top edge leaving enough fabric (approximately 1/2″)  to pull inside the shoe and press into sticky adhesive.
  10. Check all edges to be sure they are securely glued in place.  Repeat for second shoe.
