I love to take something plain and give it some “wow”! Flip flops are fun to work with because there are so many different ways you can make them unique to you. My favorite way to update flip flops is with fabric and Mod Podge. Yes, you read that right! As long as you don’t wear your flip flops to the pool, the fabric will stay put and look great all summer.
- Flip Flops, $1 and up
- Fabric Scraps, on hand
- Mod Podge, on hand
Total: $1 and up
To make over your flip flops:
Step one: Cut a strip of fabric to fit around your flip flop. I used a pair of wedge flops that I bought on clearance in the fall.
Step two: Cover the surface with Mod Podge. Press the fabric onto the surface, and paint another layer of MP on top. I don’t cut my fabric to size yet because I like to have a clean edge.
Step three: Once the fabric has dried, cut off the excess fabric. Seal with another layer of MP.
Step four: Make the bow for the shoe. Cut a strip of the fabric. Fold the edges towards the middle. Pinch it together and stitch. Cover the center with another strip of fabric, and sew it onto the flip flop.
Your flip flops just went from boring to ADORABLE! Think of all the different looks you can achieve with different types of fabric, like I did here. Have fun creating!
