The last day of school was last week so it is starting to feel like summer! But nothing makes it feel more like summer than getting a brand new pair of flip flops. I decided to spruce up my plain Old Navy flip flops with some bling. Because everyone knows us Texas girls like some bling, right?
Here's what you need:
Swarovski Elements Crystals (approx. 4mm in size)
I got these at Michaels, but they also have them at Hobby Lobby. Make sure they are Swarovski. They cost a little bit more but it is so worth it! They are so much more sparkly, especially when the sun shines on them. You will need about 4 packages. They are about $5 a package, but you can get them cheaper if you use a coupon. I had a 25% off coupon at Michaels so they only cost me about $15 total.
A pair of plain black flip flops
I used a pair of black Old Navy flip flops that I picked up for $2.50
You can get this at Michaels or Hobby Lobby. This is the only glue I recommend because once you glue it, its permanent. Just make sure to do it in a well ventilated area unless you want to get a little loopy because there all all kinds of crazy warnings on the tube. If you have a 3 year old like me, maybe you want to get a little loopy. Anyways, I recommend doing this outside.
To make them, just take a small brush and paint some glue on the flip flops (a little at a time) where you are going to place the crystals. Do 2 at a time with about 30 crystals on each strap. (120 total). Let dry before wearing them!
The whole project cost about $20!
