I don’t know about you, but when I head to the beach or the pool, I always pack a few essentials.

Sunscreen, naturally, plus some conditioner for my hair so it doesn’t fry or turn green from the chlorine. A big beach towel and something to read. Something to snack on, too, and my insulated stainless Tervis tumbler to keep what I’m sipping ice cold.

Instructions for DIY Bow Flip Flops

Step 1 for making DIY Bow Flip Flops: Glue grosgrain ribbon to the straps of the shoe, securing with quick drying tacky glue. Secure with a clothespin and continue wrapping around the strap. #sponsored

1) Begin by gluing ribbon to the bottom of the plastic strap on one side of the flip flop. Use clothespins to hold the ribbon in place until the quick-drying tacky glue has dried.

4) While the flip flops dry, assemble the bows. Cut a two equal lengths of ribbon and form two loop, securing the ends with Fabric Fusion Glue. If you’re making a layered bow, repeat with a thinner grosgrain ribbon.

Step 5 to make DIY bow flip flops: Once the loops have dried, pinch the center into a bowl shape, and apply glue to the pleats. Use a clothespin to hold the bow shape while the glue dries. Repeat with the smaller ribbon. Allow all bows to dry completely. #sponsored
