It's August now, and although I love my patriotic wreath and I think maybe I should keep it up for the duration of the Olympics, just to show my support for #TEAMUSA, I decided that it's time for a wreath that's perfect for the "dog days of Summer"!
So I went with this fun flip flop wreath, I found on Pinterest.
The dollar store, craft stores, Old Navy $1 flipflop days... all are great resources for this fun wreath. All you need is a bunch of flip flops and a hot glue gun! There are a few variations, and I chose the sunburst version...
It took me a few layouts to find a pattern I like... mixing up the colors of flip flops and the colors of the straps... Sometimes I get a little OCD.
Once you get your pattern (with every other one on the bottom/top) place hot glue on the bottom flip flop and press the top one on it.
Use the hands of your little ones to help you hold it down... especially if they want to help!
And keep doing it all the way around...
Let it sit and dry for a while, then check to see that each one is secure. I had to re-glue two of them that came loose.
I just used the flip flop placed on the wreath holder, didn't mess with ribbon or any other attachments.
Although, I admit it looks a little funny from the inside... :)
