How to Make Flip Flops with Bling

By Pinkwhen @pinkwhen
PictureMake your own flip flops with blingWith summer around the corner, flip flop season is now here as well!  Why not make your very own flip flops with some added bling?  You can easily do that these days with all of the cool craft supplies you can find at any of your craft stores.
For these flip flops I decided to make them a little different.  While most kits just have you adding gems, I added a little wrap around ribbon and double the bling to REALLY make them pop.  
Here is what you are going to need for these DIY flip flops with bling:
  • flip flops (mine were $1.99)
  • 2 packages of beads
  • 2 rolls of craft ribbon
  • hot glue gun
  • flip flop gem glue
  • pedicure :-)
