I’m super excited to share this craft!!! I initially found it on Pinterest and I LOVE the way it turned out, I made two!!! Here we go!
What you’ll need:
-Wood cut outs- Crab, Anchor, Dolphin
-Baby sized flip flops (I went to Old Navy)
-Monogram! (Can you tell I’m obsessed with Monograms?!)
To start, I painted the wooden sign (purchased from Michael’s!) While that was drying I painted the smaller wooden pieces (also purchased from Michael’s!) I used a wood glue to secure the rope to the wooden sign. I also used wood glue to secure the anchor, crab, and dolphin. For the monogram, shell and flip flops, I used a combination of wood glue and hot glue. I feel like the wood glue holds for a longer period of time and the hot glue helps secure it immediately. This project does take a little patience when gluing the rope. I laid out the rope before cutting it down to size, just to make sure I had the correct measurements. When it came time to glue the rope, I tried leaving it in the circle pattern and just lifting one portion at a time while applying the glue.
This is by far one of the cutest things I’ve ever made! It looks adorable in my living room! Just a side note: I purchased the flip flops in the baby section of Old Navy. Both pairs of flip flops had a strap that went around the ankle, I did end up cutting that portion off to make the flip flop more simplistic! Thanks for reading!!! Happy crafting!
