If you have clip on earrings, they are great to dress up plain toed shoes. Just clip them on where you slip your foot into the shoe. You now have a pair of glamorous shoes that would ordinarily be plain. You can get clip on earrings at a lot of garage sales.

Great idea. They can be pretty too on collars, clutch purses and more. Sometimes, when one is missing, I pry off the back and hot glue or E6000 glue on a magnet or pin back. Once something, now something new!

I had seen these bling shoes at the local children's boutiques, but could not stomach the $100 price tag that they went for so I figured out how to make them myself.

These are the shoes like the ones that Nicole Richie has for her little girl. You can use the expensive crystals that really shine but for a 4 year old the cheap jean star ones at Hobby Lobby are just fine. I have posted a tutorial on my blog.

My daughter will not take them off for less than 20 bucks she looks like a movie stars kid!

Instead of spending more money on a perfect pair of dressy shoes, use "a Krylon copper leafing pen to cover basic black heels in a shimmering layer of paint. Since it's a pen and not a brush, no time is lost taping the inside or even cleaning up."


For directions, go to:

Note: You may have to touch them up after wearing, but who wears those sorts of shoes every day?

And don't ask me why Krylon chose a pair of Steve Madden designer shoes to paint, either!

You can customize any baby doll style shoes for your little ones. Just use a glue stick to stick the flowers and the beads on the shoe. The beads are optional if you want another design for your shoe.
