This fun, quick, inexpensive way to decorate your feet is so creative, yet easy with a little bit of fabric torn into strips OR some ribbon!
It’s a great camp craft, teen activity, girls day project to have for days at the pool, or to make to match your summer outfits, or just because you want to have an excuse to dress up your feet!!!
DIY Funky Flip Flops
• A pair of plain flip flops
• Fabric of your choice OR 1″ wide ribbon would work just as well, cut into 6″ lengths
• Pinking Shears
Directions: First you will want to cut strips of fabric into 1 inch wide and 6 inches long.
The strips do not need to be exact.Don’t worry if you don’t have pinking shears you can use a pair of regular scissors as well.
When cutting the fabric, use about 25-30 strips of fabric per flip flop (depending on the shoe size.)
Next you will want to tie the fabric around the flip flop straps.When tying the fabric around the flip flop, tye it into one knot. If you are going to use more than one type of material start alternating at this point.
You may notice your strands starting to fray. This is what adds charm!
Tie all the way down until there is about 2 inches of the flip flop strap showing.
You want to stop here, for comfort when wearing:)
Trim the edges to your preferred length.
Now you can make several, varying the color of the flip flop and fabric or ribbon!
