I was so excited to do this one as I really needed something cute for my door this summer. I have seen lots of different versions of these – some with various color flip flops, etc. My sister also helped me out on this one (she’s definitely way more creative than me – so I always appreciate her input!)
For this project, I got 6 pairs of flip flops at Walmart – 3 blue and 3 white (less than $1 each). I tried to get all the same size that was more difficult than I had thought it would be – especially since I wanted specific colors. The two blues (at 6 and 12 o’clock on the wreath) are size 9-10…I had to get some glue for my daughter’s glue gun ($5). I grabbed two bunches of flowers (.97 each). Also, picked up some wire edged red ribbon ($5). I had the foam board backing. All in all, the total expenses were about $20 with tax (though I will be able to use the glue on other projects). And it took about 2 hours or so to complete (this included some time for the glue to dry).
We first ran the ribbon through a hole we punched into the foam board. Then we laid out all the blue (base color) flip flops. Then we glued the white ones in between to fill in the space. We also used a little bit of clear Gorilla Glue to be sure everything would stay. We then pulled the flowers off the plastic stems and set them in the center circle. We glued them so that the petals were on the flip flops and filled in with 4 of the”leaves”. We let everything dry for about an hour…but then it was good to go!
