Perfect for displaying a little color poolside or along a fence, we spotted these adorable flip flop plant sconces at Garden Share, posted by user Jon S.  The post doesn’t have much in the way of instructions (though there are some great tips in the comments), but the idea is fairly self-explanatory: nail flip flops to wall, insert coffee mugs.  It will take you just minutes to hang and assemble them, and you’ll enjoy the fruits of your limited labor all summer long.  Now that’s our kind of project!  [how to make flip flop plant sconces]
