I have eleventy billion old flip-flops sitting around. As soon as I get back from my camping trip, I am going to try updating them with Nicole’s brilliantly simple technique….
Hi, I am Nicole from Thrifty Decorating and I am so excited to be here at The V-Spot today! I just love Viv’s blog…not only do I get wonderful ideas, but I just enjoy hearing all of Viv’s stories!
I spend my summer in flip flops….here’s the proof…
So I start my summer by making a trip to Old Navy to buy flip-flops….. don’t you just love their wall of flip-flops??? Despite their beautiful wall of colors, I am quite boring in my choices…..brown, black and white! One year I bought red, but they are still sitting in my closet!
By July, those $2.50 pair of flips are looking a little ragged….and I’m getting a little bored of my brown, black, white rotation!
So, I decided to “spice” up my flips!
It’s super easy…..no sewing skill is required! My sewing machine and I aren’t always on speaking terms!
Grab a pile of coordinating fabric….yes, even that was overwhelming for me so I bought a pack from Joanne’s that was already put together. It cost about $6.00 on sale and we made at least 6 pairs of flip flops from that pack.
Decide on a pattern and start from the middle working your way out…..tying double knots as you go along.
Thanks, Nicole! These are adorable! What girl doesn’t love shoes? What girl wouldn’t love these cute flip-flops?!

This is a perfect craft to do with my younger version of myself and all her flip flops. Great idea, fun for a summer afternoon where there is “nothing to do”. Thanks for sharing.
I would imagine the addition of fabric and ribbon would also make those flip flops a bit more comfortable! Sometimes those cheapie plastic straps are not the most fun things to walk around in all day.

What a great and simple idea! Even I could do it! YAY! Thanks Nicole!
How cute and simple is that! And like you said, if you get bored with one color, you can always untie the knots and go for something else!

The feet is so nice but amazing.. The art is so great and it so creative..
Loved this idea. My daughter is doing flip flops for a local children’s hospital fundraiser and these ideas were perfect! Who doesn’t love flip flops. Right?
