For today’s DIY project, I wanted to make use of some of the gorgeous vintage clip-on earrings I’ve collected! Keep reading for tips on how to make fun removable clips for your favorite shoes!
For these Double Indemnity heels, I added this vintage pair of green leaf earrings for a new look. I recommend putting a piece of medical tape on the earring clip to ensure your foot stays comfortable!
I took orange clip-ons and added bows to them for the Wicker Park Slingbacks. To secure the bows, I hot-glued them to the backside of the earrings. Again, wrap the clip part of the earring in medical tape if it is uncomfortable for you.
For the Awards Ceremony Heels, I wanted to add a little extra flair to the ankle strap with these vintage pearl dangle clip-ons!
And finally, for the White Angle Slingbacks, i made another bow and hot glued it to a plain clip-on earring back. We showed it on the back of the sling back but it looks super cute on the front as well!

I love the idea of using vintage clip earring. Thank you very much for that
My Mom and Grandma have a bunch of old clip-ons they don’t wear anymore. I really feel like I should go look through them now! Oh boy! ^_^
You’re so clever and creative, Liz!!
I really like this idea, but wouldn’t the clips hurt? like on the black shoes, wouldn’t the clip dig into your skin?
How creative! I can’t wait to try a few of my own. What a great way to make your own statement or to tie an outfit together.
I am definitely going to try this… great idea Liz!
OMG cannot wait to try this! Thanks ModCloth!!!
This is super sweet….I definitely want to try this! I love your DIYs Lizzie! I am in the process of doing the jewelry display one!
I’m currently in the process of making these for my etsy store! We must be on the same wavelength. I’m trying to do cute animals and also more modern ones. Leather & studs, oh my! Good entry. 🙂

I love love LOVE this idea! I have a bunch of great vintage earrings from my grandma’s collection that I wouldn’t wear, but that were just too pretty and interesting to throw away. This is perfect for them and a great way to dress up my plain heels. Yeay!!
This is so brilliant! I also use some vintage clip-ons as hair pieces; I take a section of hair, bobby pin it back and then place the earring just above the pin, or if it’s a small piece of hair I just use the earring alone to hold the hair. I get tons of compliments every time I wear them!
