I could have left them the way they were. You can always use a plain pair of flip flops to run around in. But… my crafty self decided it needed something.
If you must know.. this is how I made them.
Start off with a plain jane pair of flip flops.
You’ll also need a pair of scissors and a hot glue gun. Let’s get started.
Begin at the bottom of the strap and glue the end of the ribbon onto it.
Continue all the way up the strap to the top. Cut the ribbon and do the same on the other end of the strap.
This is how it’ll look.
Take some scrap felt in whatever colors you choose. I picked white.
Find a small jar/container to trace a circle that is about 1 1/2 inches wide and cut it out.
At the same time, cut out 8 petal like shapes like these. They’re about an inch long.
With each petal you’ll need to glue the smaller end. Add a tiny dab of hot glue and pinch the end with your fingers so it looks like this.
Now you can start gluing them onto your circle. The pinched end towards the middle and go all the way around adding your petals.
Now cut out 3 small circles that are about an inch or smaller.
Add a tiny dab of glue to the center and squeeze the center in so it looks all scrunched up. Do it to all 3.
Now glue them to the center of the flower you made.
Glue the flower to the top of your flip flop strap. Now do it all again to your other sandal.
Now put ’em on and enjoy!
Please don’t mind my pasty feet.
Super easy and fun to wear! Have a blast dazzling up your flip flops!
