Personalized Gifting!

Hello y’all! For those of you who don’t already know, I’m also a Scentsy consultant!  Today I’m sharing a quick DIY using a Scentsy warmer called “Charmer.”  I needed a gift last Christmas for someone who loves flip flops.  I couldn’t think of what to get her, knowing that she is gifted a lot of flip flop stuff and this idea popped into my head!  I found someone on Etsy that makes flip flop decals.  Once I completed the flip flop warmer, I really wanted one myself!  I ordered my monogram from the same Etsy shop and made my own!  They both turned out really pretty!  This is a great idea if you’re looking for something personalize this holiday season!!!

Flip Flop Frame!

Welcome!
Today’s post is a quickie!  I purchased an adorable frame from (you guessed it!) Michael’s and I wasn’t sure what to do with it!  Finally I decided to just paint it!  I added glitter to give it a pretty shimmer and added little polka dots on the straps.  

So cute!!! I’m sure there are a million ways to decorate these little frames, you could always add little embellishments like little pearls, ribbon, flowers, butterflies, the list goes on!

Hope y’all enjoyed! Have a great day!!!

Wooden Wreath

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:
-Wooden sign
-Wood cut outs- Crab, Anchor, Dolphin
-Baby sized flip flops (I went to Old Navy)
-Monogram! (Can you tell I’m obsessed with Monograms?!)
-Sea Shell
-Rope
-Paint
-Paint Brushes
-Wood Glue
-Hot Glue
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!

Flip Flop Welcome Sign!

Hello!!!
Here’s another Flip Flop craft!
What you’ll need:
-4 Pairs of Flip Flops
-Hot Glue
-Gorilla Glue
-Letters or Paint for “Welcome”
-Small piece of wood
-Wire or Ribbon
To start, I layered the flip flops and glued them into place.  I used both hot glue and Gorilla Glue to secure the flip flops together.  The crazy glue was for long term hold where as the hot glue was for an instant hold.  I find that when you craft with hot glue, it doesn’t hold up well in direct sunlight.  I used Gorilla glue to secure the letters “Welcome.”  If you don’t have letters, you can also use paint to write the “welcome” letters across the flip flops.  I then attached a small piece of wood to the back where you’ll be able to attach a wire or ribbon which can be used to hang the welcome sign.  Hope y’all enjoyed!!!

Flip Flop Wreath!

To make the flip flop wreath you’ll need:
-4 pairs of flip flops 
-Hot Glue Gun 
-Crazy Glue
-Embellishments! (Ribbon/shells)
-Letter or Word
Initially when I made this wreath I used a styrofoam base, but it ended up not working out the best!  It’s actually easier to attach the flip flops to each other. 
To start, organize the flip flops in the pattern that you prefer. I made a “t” shape for the first layer, and then added the second layer between each flip flop. I then used hot glue to secure the flip flops in place, however I found that if you place the wreath in a high sun area, the hot glue won’t hold for long! When I touched up the wreath I used hot glue in combination with crazy glue and that seemed to work much better! 
You can add whatever embellishments you prefer! I used ribbon and sea shells. Once everything is assembled, attach a word or letter in the center (it helps cover where all the flip flops intersect.) Michael’s always has a lot of cute embellishments, like butterflies, flowers, and such!
I hope y’all enjoyed this craft! Have a great day!
