Once warm weather rolls around, flip flops are pretty much the only shoes you'll catch on my feet. I just looooove them! They just scream summertime, to me.
So, when I came across a bin at Jo-Ann filled with these fun, bright colored flip flops for only a dollar, I knew I had to snag them!
I raided my ribbon stash for some fun coordinating ribbon, and this super cute flip flop wreath is the end result!
Soooo stinkin' cute, right?
And what an adorable prop for a summer party, pool party, or even a flip-flop themed party!!!
Here's how I made the Flip Flop Wreath:
I started off with a wire wreath form that looks like this:
I played around with the placement of the shoes until I had them where I wanted them, then I used wire to secure them to the form.
Next, I cut my ribbon into strips (you can play around with lengths until you have the look you're going for), and tied them to the wreath form to fill in the spaces between the flip flops.
It takes some time to tie all of the ribbon on, but it's ooooohhhh so cute when it's finished!
Add some flower sprigs, a bow, or a cute little homemade sign across the middle of the wreath and you've got yourself a masterpiece! :)
And since I am a party girl, after all, I immediately started brainstorming ideas for a flip-flop-themed party.
Start off with adorable little flip flop invitations like these (available here in our shop)
Then add some cupcakes topped with cute little party toppers like these (available in our shop here)
Have everyone come wearing their favorite flip flops, then set out some fun craft items along with some inexpensive flip flops like these, and have everyone decorate their own pair.
Hand out prizes or certificates for the most colorful, most creative, most outrageous, most sparkly, etc.
You'll have an activity and a party favor all tied into one!
Serve up some of these great little flip flop cookies, and you've got yourself a party!
