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.
- 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
- wreath hanger
- Overlap the flip-flops to form a circular wreath. Once they are arranged to your liking, glue them together using your hot glue gun.
- Using your small paint brush, brush your starfish generously with Modge Podge and sprinkle with the decorative sand. Allow to dry according to instructions.
- Once your starfish are dry, glue them to your wreath using super glue (I found that they did not stick well with hot glue)
- 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
