So I saw this Pin....... It seems like all my conversations are starting that way these days...... and thought "I can do that!"
After Christmas, I need something cute to dress up my front door. What better than a wreath made out of flip flops? We don't wear them, but there are some cute crafts using them. Also, just seeing a flip flop makes you think of the pool, beach, summer, and warmer days.
I started with a scrap piece of cardboard. Nothing fancy. But I cut it big enough to support the flip flops. It's not even round!
After a quick trip to Dollar Tree, I had 3 pair of adult flip flops and 2 pair of child size flips. Armed with my glue gun and an idea, I just got started. I had only seen a photo, and figured I would use my imagination for the rest.
I started with putting the adult size flips in a circle around the card board.
Then a second layer to help cover the card board.
Then I noticed that it was uneven and I could still see the cardboard. So I made another trip to the Dollar Tree. This time I found cute patterns. I also got two pair of goggles to decorate the wreath with. Now I have 4 more pair of child size shoes.
Turns out I only needed 3 pair of adult flip flops and 4-5 pair of child size flip flops. Definitely make sure that you play with the pattern and design before gluing anything down. I am not patient, but this only took about an hour. That was with an extra trip to the store!
