Making a Flip Flop Centerpiece for a Summer Party is an easy to put together craft. Using dollar store flowers and flip flops, a thrifted basket, and foam sheets keeps the cost of this low. It takes less than thirty minutes to make and it’s a fun decor piece for a party.
I love having themed parties like my Flamingo Party that I hosted a couple of months ago. Today, I’m sharing a fun centerpiece for a Flip Flop Themed Party. As summer winds down, but before I start sharing all things fall, I wanted to have one last summer fling. This week, it’s all about how to have a flip flop themed party.
How To Make a Flip Flop Centerpiece for a Summer Party
Items Needed to Make a Flip Flop Centerpiece
- Thrift Store Find Basket
- Dollar Store Flowers
- Dollar Store Flip Flops
- Foam Sheets
- Flower Picks
I can’t pass up baskets that I find at my local Goodwill store when they are in great condition and are priced low. This square basket was $2.99. It has a lid that I set aside. I’m already thinking of ways to use it for another project. I lined the basket with pink foam sheets that I cut to size.
Dressing up the flip flops was as easy as gluing a dollar store flower to the center of each flip flop. I used clear Gorilla Glue.
To give the items that I added to the basket more height, I inserted a couple of blocks of styrofoam to the bottom. Two pearl head pins are used to hold the flip flops in place.
To make the foam flip flops:
- Draw or trace outline of flip flops onto foam sheet
- Mark the spots for the strap of the flip flop
- Cut out flip flop pattern
- Using an exacto blade, make slits in foam for strap
- Cut a strip of foam long enough to thread from one slit to the other and upwards to form a V
- Push strip of foam through one slit, then the other
I used a piece from a flower pick to secure the strap in the center. I poked it through the strap and through the flip flop, leaving the stem on.
I used the stem to attach the flip flops to the front of the basket.
Adding flowers and a couple of picks filled the basket.
The total cost to make this flip flop centerpiece was less than $5.00 It adds a fun touch to the table for the party.
Are you planning one last summer time party before fall arrives? A flip flop themed party is a fun way to send off summer!
