What is your go-to footwear for summer? For many, flip flops are the quintessential accessory for this season. It is because they are fun, easy to wear, and affordable to buy. If you love the idea of wearing flip flops this summer and want to stand out from others, then glam it up! Do you own some plain, boring flip flops? Revamp them up by adding some ribbons and beads! This is so easy to do!
WHAT YOU NEED:
|1 Pair of flip-flops, 1 Spool ½ inch ribbon, Lots of beads in assorted sizes, Tiny seashells, Hot glue gun, Needle and thread|
WHAT TO DO:
|Place a small amount of hot glue on the outside of the flip flop strap at the base and attach the end of your ribbon.|
|Continue wrapping your ribbon around the straps on your flip-flops until they are completely covered. Add small amounts of hot glue to hold your ribbon as you go and secure the end when you are finished with hot glue as well.|
|Take your ribbon again and wrap it around and back and forth across the center “V” of your flip-flops to fill in.|
|Be careful not to make your “V” to high or if you really do want it to go higher, make sure you wrap it loosely otherwise it will be difficult to get your foot into.|
|Add your beads one at a time sewing them on, (I put a small drop of hot glue under all of the large and medium sized beads as well as the seashells before sewing them). I stitched through each bead 2 times before going on to the next bead.|
So whether you’re just hanging out at home or on vacation at some exotic beach, you really need to elevate your foot wear with some beads and seashells. These beaded flip-flops bring to mind thoughts of Palm Beach, tans, and some serious relaxing. I don’t know about you but I am soooo ready for Summer.
