Simple Ideas for Do It Yourself Sassy Summer Flip Flops

Simple Ideas for Do It Yourself Sassy Summer Flip Flops!

If you’re planning to host a fun summer party this year or are looking for inexpensive craft ideas to complete with your little ones this year, consider these fun DIY ideas for transforming an old pair of flip flops into something sassy and spectacular.

Idea #1- Colorful Balloon Flip Flops

I just love the idea of creating balloon flip flops They’re a simple, fun, and inexpensive way to wear something festive on your feet. Since this project requires designers to make knots in each of the balloons, it’s an ideal craft for older children (I recommend it for kids 12 years of age and older). These are a great way to show off your spirit for your favorite school by selecting team colors, sporting red, white, and blue for Independence Day, or wearing your favorite colors all year long.

For this project, you’ll need:

  • A pair of your favorite Flip Flops. I recommend using whatever you have around the house but you can pick up Flip Flops for just a couple of dollars at your local Walmart, Target, Dollar General, or Old Navy.
  • 150 Balloons in your favorite colors.


This project is simple and easy: Tie the balloons to the flip flops with the smooth part facing down and fluff once they’re all tied down. For complete step-by-step instructions visit the Time For All Things website.


Idea #2- Decorated Flip Flops

Here’s another great flip-flop project! This can be done using any broken bracelets from the jewelry box!  Garage sales have lots of cheap jewelry that would work perfect for these showy sandals! This project is again for ages 12 all the way to adults!

For this project, you’ll need:

  • Beads, rhinestones, or other costume jewelry
  • Embroidery floss (preferably the same color as the sandal)
  • Jewelry or wire cutters and scissors
  • Flip Flops
Check out step by step instructions for this project on the FAB DIY website.


Idea #3- Ribbon Flip Flops

I just love the idea of transforming a basic pair of flip flops into something extra special and unique! Using ribbon, artificial flowers, and glue, you can create something wonderful.

For this project, you’ll need:

  • Flip Flops
  • Ribbon
  • Glue
  • Artificial Flowers


Simply glue the start of the ribbon and wrap around top of flip-flop, gluing again when all wrapped.  Then glue your favorite artificial flowers on top!
