Craft a flip-flop wreath for your summer garden

by Debra Anchors

Although this is not technically an upcycle (because I used new flip-flops), you can create a wreath by finding previously loved flip-flops and then washing them in the top rack of your dishwasher.

Note:  For convenience, I have embedded links into the materials list that will take you to the products used in this project. Just click on the item you want to find.

Materials needed:

Straw wreath - 24 inch size

Rust-Oleum Painters Touch Clear Coat Spray

Greening pins (1 per flip-flop)

Children’s sunglasses

9 pair adult flip-flops


Remove the clear wrap from the wreath

Apply 2 coats of clear gloss to the entire straw surface. This will help hold the straw in place and provide some protection from rain. 

Once the clear coat is dry, arrange your flip-flops in any design you wish and then attach each with a greening pin.

Embellish your creation with some children’s sunglasses

Recycle, upcycle and do it yourself?  Absolutely!  Have you upcycled something unique for your garden from recycled materials?  Please share it with me so I can feature your creation here.
