Ribbon Flower Flip Flops



These flip flops are so cute and girly and perfect for springtime!  They are super easy & inexpensive to make & would be a great gift!



To Make:

I started out with a pair of basic, boring flip flops.


You can find these flip flops just about anywhere...


I purchased these at Wal mart.




I wrapped brown satin ribbon (5/8") tightly around the straps using hot glue to secure.  If you are worried about hot glue holding up you can also use an epoxy glue like E-6000.

{So far the hot glue has held up just fine...}





To make the ruffle flower I began by sewing a loose stitch down one edge of a 20" piece of  ribbon.  After sewing all the way down the edge of the ribbon, I pulled the loose thread and gathered the ribbon into  a flower.  I stitched the ends together underneath the flower to hold it in place and glued it onto the flip flop.




Super Easy!
 


Hope you enjoyed!

  1. Cute and very creative.

    On Saturday, I went to an off-beat shop to pick up something and they had the most interesting and adorable wreath on the door and I thought of you. It looked like something you would have come up with. :)

    Your blog is exploding...that is great!
