DIY Beaded Flip Flops

For my DIY project this month, I wanted to take a pair of plain flip flops and make them look a little nicer so that I could wear them to work. I really needed some black shoes to wear with a lot of my dresses. So I made some DIY beaded flip flops. p.s. sorry for the horrible pictures my camera wasn't working with me.

Supplies Needed
  • Pair of Flip Flops
  • Hot Glue
  • Assorted beads- I had different sized pearls and some smaller gold beads
  • 1/2 inch ribbon matching the color of your flip flops
  • Needle and thread

Step One:

Wrap the ribbon around the strap of the flip flop. Use the hot glue and glue down as you go.

Step Two:
Weave ribbon inside the "V" of the flip flop to fill the space. Use hot glue as you go. Sorry I forgot to take a picture of this step but you can see the result in the next picture.

Step Three:

Use the needle and thread to thread all of the bead in their place. For the bigger pearls I also used hot glue to keep them in place.

Step Four:
Continue to thread and glue beads for both shoes until you fill up the whole ribbon section that you weaved earlier. 

Step Five:

Wear your flip flops to work with a cute dress like I did today! They are a little uneven in the beading but that is part of DIY I guess so I don't mind. 

So that is it. This project took me a lot longer than I thought it would and it also caused a lot more pain from looking down than I expected. But I am happy with the result so it was worth the pain.

As the mid year attracts to a nearby and shorts, tank tops and flip-flops are resigned for the season, the cool, fresh air must mean one thing: harvest time is around the bend.
