    I've seen some super cute sandals and even flip flops, but they are often fairly pricey. Have you ever tried picking up a cheap pair and decorating them yourself to save some cash? There are lots of ideas and even tutorials around for doing so. Some of them are actually quite simple plans to do.

    Is this something you would try or have tried? I'm thinking of making up some for the grand kids. I just have to avoid getting "trapped" on Pinterest while looking at all the cute ideas, ha ha.

    That sounds like a great idea to me! Especially, if you have kids. It could also be fanatic bonding experience and help with their creativity. It actually sounds like a lot of fun!

    Sounds like a lot of fun! Involve the grandkids while you're at it.

    Sure. People have been decorating their shoes for decades. And to let the kids help would be great. They would be more likely to wear their shoes when going outside.

    I have bought a couple of black flip flops at the Dollar tree and I wrapped some pretty fabric around the tops. They look so cute and expensive now. They're pretty comfy and they look so much better than plan flip flops. I go through around three or more pairs of sandals every summer so it really saves me a lot of money.

    Yeah, I think it would be a fun project with kids, but my grandkids are still a bit small for such things. Well, the youngest for sure. The older one could probably jump in a little bit, but I don't want baby to feel left out. I may just make up some for them this year and let them "help" next time.

    I've seen some really pretty ones lately, so it should be fun.

    Good job, Steph. It's cool that they turned out nice and you liked them. I could make some for myself while I'm at it, I guess. :)

    I used to have a friend who would buy flip-flops for a dollar or two and decorate them with colorful ribbon. They were really easy and cheap to make, and they were so cute and personalizable! I've never tried it myself, but I have watched tutorials on Youtube, so a lot of people seem to like them. You could also try making flip-flops decked out in rhinestones, or ones with a really cool threaded/crocheted detail. Good luck!
