Nothing says Welcome Summer like flip-flops!

Gather:

  • 7-8 Colorful pairs of Flip Flips – check the dollar store, use varied sizes too!
  • Silk flowers
  • Hot Glue
  • Plain Wreath
  • Decorative flat beads/stones

Practice with your layout before you glue anything on. Once you have everything where you want it THEN start gluing. Hang on your front door!

    I found this flip flop wreath to be very easy to make; however, the glue came detached because of the heat outside so my husband put an ice pick through each flip flop and then wired the flops onto the wreath. There is no way this wreath is going to become detached anymore.

      Where do you get ice picks. I thought about wiring the flip flops to the wreath also to hold them on better then gluing them. what do you think?

        If you want to buy an ice pick – any kitchen store or even grocery store should have them. But you could use a small screwdriver – or a large sewing needle – I would definitely use wire – it would be mush more secure than glue in my opinion. Good luck!

    goop, the marine glue, I think would work. It’s waterproof and adheres quickly

      I would think whatever you have available. This crafter used a grapevine wreath. Good luck!

    I started with my grape vine wreath and glued the flowers on and the flip flops together, but I don’t think I will be able to wire the flip flops to the wreath because they are positioned in such a way that you can’t wire the flip flops on the wreath. So I guess I will just have to glue my flip flops onto the wreath and call it good. Any suggestions for keeping the grape vine wreath from shedding pieces of vines. Any other suggestions for making sure the flip flops stay on the wreath besides using the glue gun. I will use the glue gun but thought there is something else I could use also with the glue for keeping the sandals on. Thank you ☺

      Use some wire to attach.. poke through the flip flop with an awl first if necessary. Hope that helps!

      Try E6000 adhesive or a glue made specifically for styrofoam.

      I would think a 12-14 inch diameter wreath would be perfect.
