Happy Friday everyone! I wanted to share this fun DIY for jeweled flip-flops project with you all. I realize it’s more wintery now– but really– who can’t use another pair of flip-flops to wear around the house? It’s not snowing yet, right? At least not here in southern California anyway.
Have fun and Happy Friday! Anyone who makes these– send me pics!
Lightly sand the straps of the flip-flops with sandpaper or use steel wool to roughen them up and make it easier for the glue to adhere. Wipe the straps clean with a cloth dampened with rubbing alcohol.
Place dots of glue onto the flip-flop strap in the pattern you want the rhinestones to be placed. Do just a few dots of glue at a time. Make the dots of glue just large enough so that when you press the rhinestone into them, the glue will also come around the edges of the rhinestone. This requires some practice.
Pick up a rhinestone by lightly touching it with the tip of the applicator, then press the rhinestone into the dot of glue. Repeat with the next rhinestone crystal and continue until the straps are covered.
Let glue fully dry, usually 24 to 72 hours. For optimal adhesion, add an extra day or two.
