Decorate Flip Flop Sandals

What better summer craft than to decorate your very own pair of flip flops? It’s a great activity for kids, teens and adults. I’ve seen this craft used for birthday parties, birthday showers and bridal showers. The easiest and most cost effective way is to request that guests either bring a pair of plain flip flops with them or request their sizes ahead of time. Otherwise you might be short on size 8s but have an over abundance of 6s!

Below I’ve rounded up some of the best posts for instructions and style suggestions! The key is to have plenty of embellishments on hand, from sequins and rhinestones to maribou trim and lace. Gluing the decor onto the flip flops will require glue guns (for the fastest and easiest applications) to craft glue. If the event is a shower, make up a pitcher of margaritas to go along! If it’s for kids, might want to go with fruit punch!

    Decorating our own things is craft that gives a person a lot of pleasure. I came across many people who make their own decorative items like fancy dolls; to my astonishment I found description of decorating sandals in this web site. I liked this differed approach to crafts sessions, buying already decorated shoes is not a bad idea as well from sites like Fashion Shoes.
