Decorating Flip Flops is a fun party activity. It is a craft that is as fun for a party of bridesmaids as it is a party of five year olds. All you need is a pair of flip flops in a solid color, ribbons or markets and your imagination and you are ready to go.
If gathering all of the materials seems like a big chore to you then you can get several kits for making them. The company Noodle Head makes a kit for little kids and a second kit for teens. Alex Toys also makes a kit called Flip ‘Em Flops that have soles and seven pairs of ribbons. This means you can wear a different color ribbon on your flip flops every week. This is expensive and not as fun and personal as decorating your flip flops.
There are many ways to put a personal touch on flip flops including creatively writing your name on them, crawing flowers on them adding stars and using a marker to draw swirls, polka dots and other shapes.
Graffiti decorated flip flops also look nice. You can write any message you want on them. Don’t forget to write messages on the soles of your feet for extra effect. That way when you are sitting cross legged others can read your messages.
There are all kinds of nice items that can be used for decorations. You can roll thongs in glue and then roll them in tiny glitter and sequins. You can glue on larger sequ3enx and flat gems toms. You can also get special waterproof glue that allows you to wear these decorated flip-flops in the water.
You can also fix great big flowers, buckles, buttons and anything shiny to the flip flops to give them a nice look. Big flowers are easy twine on flip flops. In fact if you have a selection of fake flowers on hand you can customize your thongs to suit just about every outfit.
If you are really ambitious you can even make your own flip flops. All you need is a chunky foam for the base of the flip flops and fabric strips that will be threaded through holes that you poke in the soles. Then all you need is a hot glue gun and paints to decorate your flip flops. This is a simple craft but be forewarned that they do not last as long as the ones that you buy in the store.
