Get Mom’s feet looking fabulous for less with these DIY Mother’s Day Butterfly Flip Flips. With just a few dollar store supplies you can create customized flip flops just for her.

Supplies needed:

  • Flip flops in your choice of color
  • Embellishments from your local dollar store (this can includes $1 items such as silk flowers, butterflies, felt cut outs, etc.)

1. Begin by deciding what embellishment you will be using. You will need two, one for each flip flop.
2. Apply some glue (be generous) to the back of the item and press it to the spot of the flip flop that would rest between the toe.
3. Repeat on the other flip flop, pressing firmly as you apply the embellishment.
Give the flip flops a solid hour to dry. Tie them together with ribbon for presenting.

Head to your local dollar store and grab the supplies you need to make your own fabulous Mother’s Day flip flops. If they have different sizes, you could even make Mommy and Me flip flops!
