How many of you have big Independence Day plans? Perhaps you’re hosting a patriotic picnic or maybe just taking a dip in the pool and venturing out for a night full of fireworks. Whatever your plans may be, there’s no doubt that you will be rocking some sort of red, white and blue. Plus, it’s summertime so why not craft yourself a pair of Patriotic Flip Flops? These are so simple to make that you’ll want to craft them for the whole family!
Here’s what you’ll need to get started:
- Short Sleeve Adult T-Shirt, Red
- Short Sleeve Adult T-Shirt, White
- Imagin8™ Adult Flip Flops, Royal Blue
- Fiskars® Premier Original Orange-Handled Scissors
1. Cut T-shirts
Lay T-shirts flat on a cutting surface. Using the scissors, cut off the bottom hem of both T-shirts.
Fold the shirt in half and cut strips about 1″ apart. Continue cutting strips all the way up to the sleeve.
Take all the pieces and cut them in half-lengths. Now cut all the pieces into 6″ strips.
2. Tie onto Flip Flops
Take one 6″ strip and stretch it. Now wrap around the outer side of the flip flop strap and tie it in a double knot. Continue with the rest of the strips and alternate colors until you have reached the inner side of the flip flop.
Trim the strips to desired length.
Continue with the other flip flop, doing the same technique.
3. Show Your Pride
In just a few steps, you have fancy firework flip flops! How easy is that?
