Balloon Flip Flops

We can’t wait for summer! The girls and I wear nothing but flip flops during this season.  The great benefit of this fun craft is they’re cheap and there are about a million ways to customize them, so they’re the perfect DIY accessory for the frugalistic woman inside all of us!  Just buy a package of water balloons and your set for your sweet project!


Items you will need:

Flip flops, on hand or $1

Water Balloons $1

You need a total of 5 balloons per group. Stack 4 balloons on top of each other, ends facing opposite direction. Take your 5th balloon and use it to tie your stack of 4 balloons to the flip flop. This can be a bit tricky, but after doing it a couple of times, you’ll be a pro. If it becomes too tricky to tie with the balloon, you could always use a strong string or something similar.  Tie 4 stacks of balloons to each side, a pinky finger tip width apart. So a total of 80 water balloons per shoe.  There you have it.  A super frugalistic savings for a fun summer day project!
