Easy to Make Flip Flop Wreaths
Flip Flop Wreaths Easy and Fun To Make
For me flip flops have always been a sign that summer has begun. Summer craft ideas like this don't get much easier. There are a few ways you can make a flip flop wreath. The most popular ways are to make them with either a wreath form or a swim noodle. Then add some flip flops and cute flowers like Daisys and you will have the best looking ready for summer front door wreath on the block.
You can get the supplies you need to make these wreaths just about everywhere. Flip flops that are inexpensive are sold at Walmart, any dollar store or Old Navy. Craft stores always have a big selection of flowers and embellishments so that you can add your own personal touches on your wreath.
Supplies You Will Need
1 Floral Craft Ring
12 Flip Flops (if you are making a smaller wreath use less flip flops)
Hot Glue Gun
Hot Glue Sticks
Flowers, Embellishments, Ribbons

Putting the Wreath Together
Heat the glue gun with glue stick in it according to manufacture instructions. Glue the wreath with the flip flops glued by the heel and with the toe portion pointing away from the wreath form. The way I made my wreath was to glue the entire flip flop onto the wreath form and placing them into a circular pattern. I think it looks nice to alternate patterned flip flops and solid colored ones Allow to thoroughly dry before decorating. Hot glue the fabric flowers and embellishments on to the flip flops. Hang with a wreath hook and enjoy your new creation!
Always use caution when using a hot glue gun around small children. The glue gets very hot really fast and can severely burn your skin.

Decide how big of a circle then cut the noodle to that size. Bend noodle until both ends meet. Tape closed with clear packing tape.
If you are using fabric to wrap the wreath then cut it into strips first. Wrap wreath with fabric or ribbon. Make sure to completely cover the noodle.
Glue the flip flops in an alternating pattern: one on top of the other. Continue gluing until the flip flops form a circle.
Hot glue artificial flowers to wreath. Finish it off by tying a ribbon through two of the flip flops and tie in a knot to hang. I use a flower to hide the ribbon in the thongs.
