Transform Your Plain Flip Flops
Summer and flip flops go together like PB and J, coffee and donuts...a diy-er and a never-ending mind full of ideas!
I love when Old Navy has their super sale on flips and you can get several pairs for just a few bucks.
Last summer I bought two pairs of their wedge flips, but when I got home I decided they were too plain and I would jazz them up a bit!
I cut two old t-shirts down into strips and pulled the strips to create 't-shirt yarn'. Here's a great tutorial that shows you how to cut your tee into ropes.
(sorry I don't have pics of the process...these were created in my pre-blogger days!)
Starting at the end of the strap, I tied off two t-shirt ropes and then criss-crossed them all the way down to the toe area, tying them off again. I then repeated this for the other side. The great thing about t-shirt yarn is that it is stretchy, so you can pull it tight and make your knots almost invisible!
I made bow and flower embellishments and added them to the toe area for a dash of extra cuteness!
A thrifty hack and original flip-flops!
If I get enough interest, I'll add a tutorial for the flowers. Let me know if you'd like to see a tutorial in the comments section below.
