GET READY TO FLIP YOUR FLOPS >
TOOLS & MATERIALS:
- 1 Pair flip flops – (I bought mine at Old Navy)
- Ribbon 3 yards (1/2″ or 5/8″)
- 2 2â€ Brass rings (similar here)
- Hot glue
Add a small amount of hot glue to the underside of your filp flop near the base.
Secure the end of your ribbon in the glue and let dry.
Wrap your ribbon around the straps on your flip flops.
When the straps are completely wrapped, set your brass ring on top of your filp flop to determine the placement.
Use a very small amount of hot glue to glue the ring to the straps on your flip flop.
I glued mine in three places; on the bottom at the center of the strap and on each side.
Using your ribbon wrap around the strap on your flip flop and the ring, just wrap at the points where you glued the ring to your straps.
Summer is here and we all could use some cool and comfortable footwear. The geometric shape of the brass ring and the bright green ribbon make these filp flops chic enough to wear with a cute summer dress or with your bikini to the beach. Its so easy to embellish these flip flops and make some great new sandals for less than $7.
Old Navy has flip flops two pair for $5 so you can make two or one for you and one for a friend! This past Saturday they actually had their $1 flip flop sale, which explains the line around the store and down the block that I saw here in Brooklyn. But at $5 for two pair it’s still a great price (without the line)!
I guess I must really love flip flops since I made these and these last year and I have another pair just waiting for embellishment to share with you!
