Whether you're looking for an easy kids' craft idea, an inexpensive gift idea, or a quick way to splurge (or not!) on yourself, making a new pair of floral flip flops is simple and inexpensive with this DIY idea from my favorite summer book, Summer: A User's Guide by Suzanne Brown.
(Several posts ago, I featured this book as a highlight of our Summer Fun Gift Basket. If you missed it, check it out.)
Brightly colored silk flowers add color and whimsy to everyday flip-flops.
Things you'll need:
Strong adhesive glue
What to do:
1. With wire cutters, clip a flower from its stem (some silk flowers simply pop off). If some of the petals loosen, simply glue them back together.
2. Squeeze a bit of glue onto the back of your flower, press it firmly onto the top of your flip-flop, and hold it in place until the glue has hardened.
3. Repeat this process for the other flip-flop.
You can find silk flowers at your nearest craft store or dollar store. Choose a big silk daisy in the color of your choice or something equally round and flat. This shape will sit better on the flip flop.
Enjoy and have a happy day!
