Flower Shoe Clips
These Flower Shoe clips are great for summer. With their bright colors and easy design, this project is great for using up leftover beads and adding a colorful floral embellishment to everything from shoes to your hair. Layer flowers like shown to create 3-dimensional embellishments that are great for anything. This is an easy project for kids and adults to make and you'll have so much fun playing with bright and colorful seed beads.
- 3 yds 28g craft wire
- 2 6mm soldered rings
- 1 pair shoe clip findings
- 2 colors 11/0 seed beads
- 2 8mm flat flower bead
- 2 4mm round firepolish
- Chain-nose Pliers
- Glue (E6000)
Anchor a piece of 28g wire to a soldered ring by winding it around a couple of times, leaving a 1" tail.
String 2 1/2" of seed beads onto the long wire, slide down to the base and wind wire around the ring next to the anchor wire. This will create a loop that is the first petal of your flower.
Continue the process until you have 8 petals around the ring.
Add 1 1/2" of a contrasting color seed beads and make a petal.
Repeat 4 more times until you have 5 petals.
Thread the long wire up through the center, string on a flat flower, add 4mm bead and thread back down through the flat flower, pull firmly and twist the two tail pieces to secure.
Glue on shoe clip finding with E6000. Be sure to wait a full 24 hours for the glue to cure before using. If your shoe clips have holes you can get additional security by weaving the wire in and out of the holes.

We are so cute. I really like the look. I just have to make them in pink and purple to make my grand daughter really happy. She loves those two colors. The directions couldn't be easier with step by step pictures to help you along the way. Thank you for sharing.

Hi, dottiejs. Have you tried your local craft store (Hobby Lobby, Michaels, etc.)? You should be able to find them there. If not, you might try ordering them online. Here is a link to a similar product on our sister site CutRateCrafts: http://www.cutratecrafts.com/product.php/sku/421347 Hope this helps! --Editors of FaveCrafts

Ok is it me losing where the second jump ring is supposed to be used at? I don't see the need but was curious as to where it was supposed to come in to play?

lol, hopefully you have figured this one out by now. You have two feet, two pairs of shoes, two shoe clips so you need two jump-rings. Ok, so you gave me a little laugh, I needed it. :)
