Make it Monday – Flower Flip Flops

Here’s an easy step-by-step tutorial how to make cute Flower Flip Flops. You can also use this ribbon flower for hair accessories and jewelry.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • flip flops
  • wire ribbon (at least 2 feet)
  • hot glue gun
  • hot glue
  • scissors

Start by cutting your ribbon into a one foot section. If you want to make a bigger, more full flower add a few more inches to this measurement. Now wiggle out the little wire from the ribbon.

Pull the wire.

Pull the wire from the other end as well. Take care to not pull too hard or the wire will break.

The ribbon will look all ruffley. On one end, start rolling the ribbon into a spiral shape. Feed the wire to the bottom of the rosette.

Now the the ribbon is in a rossette shape, tie the two wires together. Cut off the wire at the base of the flower. 

Add hot glue to the base of the flower and then attach to the flip flop. Tip: to make sure you don’t get burns, always add a small bowl of ice water next to your glue gun. That way, if you do get burned you’ll have instant relief.

Paint your toesies to match and show your sweet shoes off outside.
