Supplies to make your Tassel Beaded Flip Flops:

  • 1 Pair of flip flops
  • 10 Large beads
  • 8 Small beads
  • 3 Skeins embroidery floss
  • 2 Yards of ribbon
  • Scissors

Supplies To Make Your Tassel Beaded Flip Flops
Step 1
Starting at the base of your flip flops, apply a small amount of hot glue to attach your ribbon. Wrap your ribbon around the straps of your flip flops until they are completely covered.

Step 2
Take a piece of your ribbon, about 4-5 inches long and wrap it back and forth across the center “V” of your flip flop straps, securing it with hot glue on both ends.Tassel Beaded Flip Flops with Ribbon

Step 3
Making your tassels.
• Take your embroidery thread and cut 2 short pieces about 3 – 4 inches long each, set them aside.
• Take the end of your embroidery floss and holding it between your thumb and fore finger, wrap it around your thumb about 8 – 10 times.
• Carefully slide it off your thumb and slide one of the short pieces you cut through the embroidery floss you just wrapped. Pull it tight and tie.
• Cut one end of your wrapped embroidery floss, squeeze them together and wrap the top about 1/4 inch down from the top with the 2nd short piece of emb floss and tie tightly. Trim your ends.
• Using your beading needle thread your top threads through your beading needle and then through one of your large beads.
• You will make 10 tassels with the large beads and 8 tassels without beads.
• I also made 2 (out of the 10 tassels) a little bit larger, wrapping them around both my thumb and fore finger. These are the tassels I used as the center tassels.DIY Tassel Beaded Flip Flops

Step 4
Sew your tassels to your flip flops.
• For all the tassels with beads I tied a knot at the top of the bead and this is where I sewed then to the flip flops. I also then put a small amount of hot glue just under the large bead to help hold it in place.
• For the tassels without large beads I sewed them to the flip flops by sewing through the top of the tassel.
• I alternated tassels with beads with tassels without beads.
• I then sewed my smaller beads along the top, evenly spaced between the tassels.How to make Tassel Beaded Flip FlopsTassel Beaded Flip Flops
