Flip Flop Refashion with Fabric Scraps and Mod Podge

I scored major points with my oldest son when I updated a $1 pair of flip flops for him.  This project is so easy you'll be making a pair for everyone in your home!

1.  Supplies needed:  
Flip flops (I bought mine at the Dollar Tree)
Fabric Scraps
Ribbon
Mod Podge for Fabric
(I started the project with regular MP, but I recently won Mod Podge's Pinterest contest and received a box of goodies, which included MP for fabric.  This stuff rocks!  It adhered the fabric really well and was not tacky after it dried.)
2.  Cut the straps off and discard.  Cover surface with Mod Podge and press into the fabric scrap.
3.  After it has dried, cut off excess fabric.  Apply Mod Podge for fabric to the surface and edges.  Let dry.
4.  Cut fabric where the holes in the flip flops are.  Fold ribbon in half and push through.
5.  Tie a knot to secure.
6.  Push remainder of ribbon through the other two holes.
7.  Knot and cut off excess.

Rock your awesome new flip flops!

As I've complained before, it is so hard to come up with craft projects for boys.  This one, however, was a big hit, and my son couldn't wait for me to finish them so he could wear them.  Yay!  Now my second son wants a pair.  And I'm making a pair for myself, too, but a bit blingier.  :)  Stay tuned for that tutorial!

Frugal yet fabulous!

  6. Great idea! The strap broke on my favorite pair of flip flops so this is the perfect refashion! (visiting from the CSI Project)
