First off, I want to start by telling you I am in LOVE with this project. I have a million and one reasons running through my head as to why one might want to paint flip flops. Literally anyone can do this and I am so excited about the flip flops I will be rocking this Fourth of July.
We ran to Walmart on Ross’s lunch yesterday. You can see more about our shopping trip here. I picked up some Elmer’s Single Painters Pens and flip flops along with groceries and lunch. Talk about a one stop shop. This is my second project using Elmer’s Painters Pens (check out project uno here). I digress…
I then integrated some fabric and a star stencil I already had and the trusty hot glue gun.
This is SOO easy. I just used the star stencils to make stars wherever I wanted. No rhyme or reason. I made my stars in red and then outlined them in blue. Then I made little rosettes using the same technique as before. Check out that tutorial here. I hot glued those bad boys on and we were in business.
Remember when I told you I had a million ideas floating through my head. Back in high school our cross country team puffy painted shirts and tie-dyed sports bras. How cute would flip flops have been? What a fun activity for a team! A great way to show school spirit. Summer camp. Sleep over. Bridesmaids. Bride. Party activity. Family summer trip. I mean really, is there ever a bad time to make flip flops? I think not.
Any other ideas cooking? As soon as Eleanor is old enough we will for sure have a flip flop decorating party. She is a May birthday. Just the right time to be thinking about busting out the flip flops.
