We have had so much fun preparing for the photo shoot for our upcoming Taylor Joelle Luxe Holiday Collection, “The Diane Collection”. One of my favorite activities was embellishing the shoes for the shoot with my mom. It was so much fun to see how well we could transform just a basic pair of shoes. It makes me not want to spend very much on dress shoes for Taylor anymore. We can always make them cute ourselves!
Step 1) Find yourselves a cheap pair of flats.
I saw cheap girl’s flats everywhere (target, old navy, payless etc.). We decided to go with the ones from payless. Some of the shoes had a little bow at the end, and we just snipped that bow right off.
Step 2) Grab some cute fabric and trace 8 circles. We used a flash light to trace the circles.
Step 3) Cut out the circles, and also cut a felt circle (same size or slightly smaller than the fabric circles).
Step 5) Do the same thing with the other circles. After covering the felt with 4 of the fabric circle folds, then do another layer. Do not lay the next layer directly on top of the first layer. Start in a different spot, between the folds of the first layer.
Step 7) Either glue your flower directly onto the shoe, or attach an alligator clip to the flower and clip it to the shoe.
