Lace-Up DIY Flip Flop
This is a fast no glue version. Best DIY flip flop idea ever! For an adult size you need 4 feet of ribbon for a large size. It’s wrapped around the toe hold as shown above and then wrapped around the leg and tied as shown below. Very easy!
Jeweled DIY Flip Flops
The important part is to use the E600 Permanent Glue or something similar, to add gems.
Rag Tie DIY Flip Flops
Using about 1/4th a yard of any fabric, for adult size, cut into strips and tie once around the flip flop bands. I cut mine using pinking shears and made the strips 1 1/2″ wide by 5″ long. When tying try to make the front side of the fabric show as much as possible. Tie loosely ONCE, then scoot up next to the tie before it and pull the tie hard and tight. Spraying with a little water on the tied part when done will help it stay in place. There is no need to knot these. Also, they do not affect the feel of wearing the flip flops at all!

Glue on any flower you choose using the permanent glue shown above.
