How To Make “No Sew” Pom Pom Felt Flower Shoe Clips

Today, I made a cute set of “No Sew” Pom Pom Felt Flowers for my daughter’s shoes.  So cute!  Adds just the right amount of fun and a splash of color to otherwise ordinary shoes.

Supplies:

  • Sheet of Colored Felt and Sheet of White Felt
  • Pair of Shoe Clips
  • Scissors or Accucut Die Machine
  • Hot Glue Gun/Glue or E6000

Instructions:

1.  Cut 12+ Felt circles in the size you desire.  I used my Accucut Die Machine and cut 2 1/2″ circles.  Also, cut 2x 1″ to 1 1/2″ White Felt circles.

7.  Put Hot Glue all around the tip of the Felt and press into the center of the White Felt circle backing.

8.  Like so and repeat around the circle until you fill it in.  It reminds me of the school craft we use to do with different colored tissue paper and glue to make a picture :).  I added a couple extra dabs of hot glue and brought some of the internal Felt petals closer together.

9.  Add a large dab of Hot Glue or E6000 to the back of the White Felt circle.
