Flip Flop Flip

I've recently seen some clever wreaths floating around the internet made out of flip flops.  I just happened to have three pairs of my daughter's flip flops in a bag to go to the second-hand store since she had outgrown them.  I retrieved one pair, thinking there had to be some clever, summery craft I could do with them.  I painted an old wooden frame and a piece of heavy cardboard.


How's this?  I simply hot glued the flip flops to the cardboard and added the words and flowers with more paint.  The total cost to me was ZERO; I had everything on hand.
If painting letters is not your thing, there are a lot of alphabet stickers on the market, or you could paint the background a lighter color and use markers.

Linking to The Thrifty Groove since zero cost is pretty darn thrifty!

Have a nice Friday!

    1. The frame is 10" x 13". I picked it up at a second hand store. Those are child size flip flops. Thanks for viewing!
