Little Wedding Shoes

My daughter was the flower girl in my sister's wedding this past August. This was definitely a DIY wedding! We worked for hours on all the little details, doing almost everything ourselves to save money. It was a ton of work but it paid off in the was a beautiful wedding! (I'll put some pictures up here once my sister gets the cd.) Since we had a small budget we bought generic items and personalized them ourselves. These shoes cost $5 on clearance and the fabric was leftover from other wedding projects!

What I used was a sheer blue fabric, yellow crushed silk-like fabric and a hot glue gun.......easy!

I cut my strip of yellow fabric a little over an inch wide and folded it in half and twisted and hot glued until I had the right size rosette.

I forgot to take pictures of the next step......but it's pretty easy to imagine :) I cut a couple little strips of blue and glued them down how I liked them and then added the rosette to the middle.

Sorry for the blurry picture! It was on my phone and she wouldn't stop twirling in her "pretty dress."

Pretty stinkin' cute if I do say so myself!

Hope you find something crafty to do today!

  2. Aunt Whitney needs to come to David's house because his mommy is horrible with crafts.
