I love flip flops but they’re just so….plain.  With a few supplies, and a little bling from Styled by Tori Spelling, I completely transformed my clearance flip flops.

This post was originally published at Crafts Unleashed, where I am a Design Team Member.  Since Spring Break is around the corner, I thought this would be a good time to start some beach crafting!

part-1rPart 1:  Mod Podge fabric onto flip flop
1.  Cut and remove plastic straps from shoe.
2.  Apply a generous amount of Mod Podge to shoe.
3.  Press fabric scrap onto the shoe, smoothing out bubbles.
4.  After it has dried, cut off excess fabric.
5.  Seal top and sides with a generous coat of Mod Podge


 Part 2:  Add the straps to your shoe
1.  Use the craft knife to cut the fabric where the holes in the shoe are.
2.  Measure the tulle so it is twice the length of the shoe.  Cut three pieces of tulle.
3.  Wrap the end of the tulle with a piece of washi tape to make a shoestring effect.
4.  Push the tulle “shoestring” through the bottom two holes.
5.  Cut a fourth piece of tulle and tie it around the center of the tulle loop you just created.  Insert the ends in the top hole of the shoe.


Part 3:  The finishing touches
1.  Now that you have your straps, place the shoe on your foot.  Tighten the straps to your liking, then secure with a knot.
3.  Place E-6000 on the knot and cut off the excess.
4.  Take your pendant and remove the jump ring and back ring.
5.  Use E-6000 to glue hair clip on.
6.  Clip on to your shoe.   


    • I’ll try to get a picture, but make the knot as tight as possible and pull the tulle so the knot is nestled in the circle where the plastic used to be. Every pair I have made, the flip flop has a large circle cut out where the plastic tab goes. As long as you get the knot in this circle, there will be no lumps on the bottom of the shoe.
