They're fun and easy to make and can be used to decorate many handmade projects such as cards, scrapbooks, home and party decor and more. I had a whole lot of fun putting these together.

Here's 7 Cool Ways on How to Use Them


1) Make a modern and cute summer necklace by making two of the flip flops, placing one overlapping the other slightly and fixing permanently together with a glue gun and then stringing onto cord tied together at the back.

2) Want a Beach Themed Christmas Tree Ornament? Make one piece in Christmas colors: try traditional shades of holly green, Cardinal red and crisp snow whites or winter colors of cool ice blues, pearl whites and silver frost. String onto a loop of cord for a cute tree decoration.

3) Turn These into Summer Themed Party Favors. If you need some themed favors for a party, small fused bead projects can be made in bulk if you plan well in advance. You can easily turn these into magnets by attaching an Adhesive Magnet Strip on the back or into keychains or clips by adding the right components.


4) Create DIY Swizzle Sticks or Drink Stirrers. Ideal for a summer party idea are your own cute flip flop cocktail stirrers. Use a hot glue gun or a plastic adhesive to attach these to the top of some plain sticks for some really fun and colorful beach and party themed drinks.

5) Decorate a Mason Jar or Candle. For some easy and quick summer home decor, attach the completed design onto a band of elastic which is just the right size to slip onto a large candle or mason jar. Your decorated Glass Mason Jar could hold an ice cold drink ideal for a party or BBQ, a candle centerpiece with shells inside, some freshly picked wild flowers, colorful candy or some sand and pebbles from the beach.

6) Add to a Paper Craft Project. These finished flip flops are just the right size to use as embellishments for greeting cards, scrapbook layouts and gift tags. Make them in colors to match the project.

7) Use as Party Table Decor. Add onto bands on elastic to make your own DIY napkin holders or candle decorations. Turn them into drink stirrers, cake or cupcake toppers, or hang from balloons. Scatter them around a table top to complete a tropical, summer or beach theme.
