My sister found a pattern on FB for the flip flop wreath and sure enough, she managed to get all of the supplies and make herself one. I saw it and thought, it would be fun and really cute. Why?
So, she and I went shopping together yesterday to find cheap flip flops, I found mine at a local dollar store. Do not go out and spend the earth for this thing, it isn't worth it. I needed 8 pairs. I chose to use sizes 7/8. Smaller sizes will result in a smaller wreath, larger shoes will result in a large one.
It also requires silk flowers and glue on jewels. She used a glue gun, invest in the E6000. It holds everything without all the pain of burning the crap out of yourself.
I managed to get the thing together after much cursing and pain. I decided in the end to break out that E6000. So glad that I did. I have to glue on jewels today and then I will take pictures of this thing before I stick it on the door.
It is a really cute idea if you can handle dealing with the cheap flip flops. Mine are really cheap and crappy but, pretty colors. After working with these things, I will no longer wear them on my feet. Talk about ruining feet, those things will do it.
