Summer Flip-Flop Wreath

I have difficulty saying no to something that is free, so when Target had a high-value coupon last month for free flip-flops I scooped a few pairs up. Then I tried them on and remember how much I dislike the feel of cheap plastic flip-flops. Rather than let a few brand new flip-flops go to waste I set to work repurposing them into a nice summer wreath for our front door.

Materials

  • 3 pairs of flip-flops (size 5-6 worked best for the size of my door-bigger sizes will increase the circumference of the wreath)
  • hot glue gun and glue sticks
  • decorative sand
  • starfish (or seashells, sand dollars, etc.)
  • Modge Podge
  • small paint brush
  • superglue
  • wreath hanger
  • ribbon

Directions

  1. Overlap the flip-flops to form a circular wreath. Once they are arranged to your liking, glue them together using your hot glue gun.
  2. Using your small paint brush, brush your starfish generously with Modge Podge and sprinkle with the decorative sand. Allow to dry according to instructions.
  3. Once your starfish are dry, glue them to your wreath using super glue (I found that they did not stick well with hot glue)
  4. Attach your bow (you can tie it  around the strap of the flip-flop or hot glue the bow onto the wreath)

*I added some gold seashells left over from my post- DIY Nautical Christmas Ornaments because they matched the gold color of my wreath hanger
