Come check out our site, and become a “Rebel Crafter”. Today, I wanted to share with you a favorite tutorial, Boudoir Slippers. They would make a great last minute gift idea for Mother’s Day!
I have been wanting a pair of fancy flower slippers. They seem like the perfect accompaniment to pair of silk pajamas for ultimate luxury femme fatale look. The slippers I like are over $50 a pair so I decided I would create my own and share how to make them. I love projects that are inexpensive to make but look like they were purchased at a boutique store. I found the ballet flat slippers at Walgreens for $5 a pair. I spent a couple dollars more for the pair with the leopard insoles from Walmart because I adore leopard. The faux silk flowers were also from Walmart, and at $3 a batch you can create more than one pair of slippers with them. What girly girl wouldn’t love opening up a pair of these adorable slippers this holiday season? Combine them with a lavender sachet or silk pajamas and you will have the perfect gift for the femme fatale in your life.
You will need:
Ballet Flat style Slippers (Walgreens $5, also at Walmart). If you find them cheaper somewhere let us know to share with our readers.
Faux Silk Flowers (approximately 3-4 ” in diameter). Try to find “flatter” flowers. You can use pointier ones but you will need to trim the back down.
Decorative Rhinestone Gem Brads (found in the scrapbooking section) (optional)
or Rhinestone Button for Flower Middle (optional)
E6000 Glue (If not using a brad)
Pop the flower off of the plastic stem.
