A Flip Flop Wreath
This is my version of a flip flop wreath that I saw on pinterest.
While shopping at the dollar store I saw these brightly colored flip flops. I remembered a wreath that I had pinned on pinterest that was made out of flip flops, sooooo that meant that I HAD TO MAKE ONE (of course!) While I was there, I looked around to find things that I could add to my wreath.
Here's what I bought:
6 pairs of flip flops
1 multi-colored lei
A wooden Beach House sign
2 bags of small beach toys
O.K., I bought more than that, but that is all I ended up using. The rhinestones I already had. So here's what I did. First I cut out the base of the wreath from card board. I traced around a large round bucket:
Then I cut it out. Notice that it does not have to be perfect.
Using a glue gun I glued six of the flip flops evenly around the frame:
Then I placed the other six flip flops going the opposite direction:
After that I added the Beach House sign, the toys and the flowers from off of the lei:
Lastly I put a rhinestone in the middle of each flower. I used the string off of the Beach House sign and glued it on to the back. Then I hung it on my door. I think it turned out cute!
My wreath has been so popular that I made another wreath for a friend. This time I used striped flip flops and laid them out side by side. It turned out cute:
Here is a fun way to decorate a gift bag with the flip flop theme:
