Summer Flip Flop Wreath

4 Materials
15 Minutes

Looking for a fun way to celebrate summer? Make this colorful flip flop wreath! This wreath has summer-bright colors, comfy flip flops and takes just 15 minutes and $6 to make.

I bought 4 pairs of cheap, colorful flip flops, (affiliate) a ribbon bow, and curling ribbon at the dollar store.

I cut a piece of scrap cardboard big enough so that there was plenty of room for the bottoms of 4 flip flops on it.

I used my hot glue gun to glue the 4 bottom flip flops to the cardboard. Then I glued the rest of the flip flops diagonally on top of the bottom 4, so that each top flip flop was glued on top of the 2 flip flops below it. That may sound confusing, but it really isn’t. You just want to make sure they are all securely attached to each other.

Next I attached the ribbon flower with hot glue in the middle of the cardboard. I chose it because it stood up kind of high, so it worked well, sitting above the flip flops. But, a silk flower or paper umbrella or sunglasses would be cute, too.

Next, I simply draped the curling ribbon around the toe piece of the bottom flip flop. I just really liked it because it had ALL the colors of my flip flops!

I made a hanger out of left-over ribbon and hung my new wreath on my front door!

  • Could also use the black "hooks" that come with the flip flops?

      We use 2 of those out in the garage to hang work rags by the work bench.

    Cute idea! How did the hot glue hold up on door during summer months? I might use E 6000

      I used E6000 and its holding well! Flip flops on other hand are getting deformed due to heat.

    are the flip flops adult or children size.

      These are children's sizes (because they were the ones who had such nice bright colors :)
