How to Make Glow-in-the-Dark Flip-Flops:
For best results, make your flip-flops right before you will be wearing them, to ensure they will glow throughout your evening event.
1. Break a bracelet-length glow stick to activate the glow. Gently bend the glow-stick in half.
2. With four small zip ties, secure the glow stick to the straps of your flip flops.
Tip: Make sure the knob of the zip-tie faces outward at the top of your flip-flop to ensure that it won’t rub against your skin.
3. Tighten zip ties, and trim tails off.
4. Rock your flip-flops!
