The Inspiration! ($198)
The Solution! ($2.68)
Okay, so I am not one of those people who looks at every thing and says, "I could make that way cheaper!" My sweet hubby does that sometimes, and honestly, it drives me BONKERS!!! I guess it shouldn't bother me because sometimes I do say I could make that cheaper and CUTER. Guess what? Sometimes, I am right, like $196 right!
Here is what you need!
1. A pair of flats, new, used, ugly, or otherwise neglected. (I am not exactly sure why I ever had a pair of white flats in my closet. I have definitely never been a nurse and I think that might be the only excuse for a pair of all white shoes!)
2. Two Zippers
3. Two circles cut from felt
4. Two alligator clips or Bobby pins (optional)
Cut one zipper into 10 equal rectangles (5 for each shoe)
Fold and hot glue like pictured.
Then glue onto a felt circle.
Twist and glue another zipper to form the center. There is no hard-fast technique for this, just play with your zipper until you are satisfied.
You can glue an alligator clip or Bobbi pin to the felt on back to attach the flower to your shoe or just glue the zipper directly onto the ballet flat.
