Tips To Help You Make Personalized Flip Flops

By Lela Perkins

Having a pair of personalized flip flops can be an excellent way to make a statement to others about your fashion style without spending tons of money. These low cost summer favorites can be bought in a number of different stores at a variety of prices. When buying, you might even consider buying a couple of pairs so you can practice your new craft or just to have a second designed pair.

They come in different materials but, you will probably notice that the ones that have the foot strap made of material will often work the best for crafting projects like this. Once you have taken the time to get the right shoe to meet your needs then you will want to think about the various materials you are going to put on your shoes.

The choice is yours when considering what to put on your shoe. The only thing you will want to keep in mind is that the material to be added should be lightweight. Most people prefer to add various different materials such as small ribbons, glitter, beads and embroidery designs. Many crafting materials can be purchased at crafting stores or even discount stores.

Once you have chosen all of the materials you are going to use, think about how they will look on the shoes. Some avid crafters like to plan the design of their project right down to the last detail while others prefer just to place the different pieces on the shoe as they feel they look best as they go along. If you do however have a specific idea of how you would like it to look you may want to sketch it out on paper before you begin to have something to follow.

How you decide to put the decorations on the shoes is as important to consider as what you want to put on because they need to stick to the shoe. In most cases, people either sew the decorations on or glue them on. If you opt to use glue, consider using a glue gun. A glue gun can be a great tool with a project like this.

If you do decide to use the glue to decorate your shoes, be sure to only put a small dab on the area where the decorations are to be placed because you do not want glue spilling over and being seen after the project is complete . Once you are finished with your design you will need to allow the glue to harden on the footwear before you wear them to help prevent the decorations from coming off when they are used.

A needle and thread are another great way to hold the decorations on that you have chosen. Do take into consideration how much thread you use when you are sewing. Using too much or too little can affect the look of your footwear and also the comfort level of the shoe if you make the tread too thick.

Kids will love a craft project making their own personalized flip flops. Since there are so many different sizes available kids of all ages can try. Do make sure that there is a grownup available to watch the kids while they work on their shoes and that the part they are doing is appropriate for them to do.
