We are a week away from the 4th of July (where did the first half of this year go?!) and I really wanted to do something festive for Independence Day! My daughter LOVES to match with me (I love it too!) and I had so much fun making these cute little festive flip flops with her – I couldn’t help but share it with you!
I got all my supplies from Hobby Lobby. They had a HUGE selction of both kids and adult flip flops. I opted for the white ones, because their red and blue ones weren’t quite the color I was looking for.
I also picked up red, white and navy blue tulle.
I cut the tulle into a bunch of 7″ pieces. (I used about 20 pieces per flip flop for my shoes, and about 10 pieces per flip flop for my daughter’s.)
Then I took one piece of tulle and tied it onto the flip flop. I double knotted it to make sure it stayed tight.
I repeated the process until the flip flop was full.
The 7″ pieces were a bit too long, so I gave the flip flop a little “hair cut” 😉 I would still recommend cutting the pieces to 7″ though, and then cutting it down when you’re done, because if you cut them any shorter, you’ll have a really hard time tying them on.
I did the same thing for the other flip flop, and for my daughter’s little pair.
Then they were ready to wear!
She’s the best little model! 🙂
Hope you and your little one enjoy making these as much as we did!
Happy 4th of July!
