Whether you’re attending an outdoor event, going to the beach, taking your kids to the park, or hitting up a pool party, flip-flops are the go-to footwear for many of us during the summer. Want to kick your flip-flops up a notch? Complete your look and set yourself apart from the crowd by decorating $1 flip-flops from Dollar Tree!
Check out these three simple DIY ideas for embellishing your own one-of-a-kind pair. Or, make matching pairs to give away as summer party favors, bridal party gifts, and more. Go classic and decorate white flip-flops or make a splash by personalizing colorful flip-flops.
1. Fantastic Floral Flip-Flops
Hot glue small faux flowers directly to the sandal straps. Alternate different colors and blooms, or use the same flower throughout for a cohesive look. These flip-flops are the perfect pop for outdoor summer garden parties, luau celebrations, and backyard BBQs!
2. Glamorous Glitter Flip-Flops
Add subtle shimmer and sparkle to the sandal straps. Paint a thin layer of Mod Podge® or glue to the straps, and sprinkle on the sparkles. Use silver, gold, or colorful glitter. Dust off the excess and allow them to dry for at least one hour. Then add another layer of Mod Podge® to seal in the glitter, and let dry for another hour before wearing. Show off your shimmery shoes in the sun at your next pool party!
3. Embellished Beaded Ribbon Flip Flops
Dress up your flip-flops with this elegant embellishment idea! Weave white sheer ribbon in a figure-eight pattern between each strap, securing it in place with hot glue as needed. Hot glue beads, crystals, craft pearls, or rhinestones on top of your ribbon in any pattern you’d like. This is the perfect fancy look for an outdoor summer wedding. Your friends and family will be so impressed with your creativity and style!
