I went to an outdoor wedding this past weekend that was “casual” so I already knew I was wearing a lovely sundress, but couldn’t decide what sandals to wear. I had a pair of black Old Navy flip flops that I got last year (free from Crowdtap- read about that here), but plain flip flops seemed way too dressed down even for a casual outdoor wedding. So while I was working the other day I had an idea to FINALLY use some of that pretty trim that people always buy and I have no idea what to do with.
So I brought my flip flop to JoAnns with me so I could compare and figure out how much I needed. I searched the trims and settled on a pretty black lacey beaded trim. I bought 3/4 of a yard, which was about 4 inches more than I thought I needed, but its best to buy a little extra! Plus 50% off coupons right now, so it was ok. I do have the 4 inches leftover because I didn’t mess up at all. I already know what I am doing with it!
So it begins! Grab your flip flops and whatever pretty trim you want to use. The trim I chose is a Beaded Lace Trim with flowers, all black. It is about 1/2″ wide and has about 1/4″ wide space to glue it down. I used E6000 because I love that stuff for everything! It worked perfectly. And now they look great and its such an easy way to dress up an outfit!
And the final product! I love it! I got lots of compliments at the wedding 🙂 Check out some of these Party Sandals Under $50 that could be DIY’d a bit to make them even more fun! I’m a Beso.com affiliate and get a small portion for every click.
