How to Make Water Balloon Flip Flops

DIY flip flops

According to my phone, the temperature outside is 103 degrees, which means that summer is here for sure. Summer to me means flip flops every day (ok ok, I will wear flip flops any other time of the year too, but at least in the summer people don’t look at me all weird ha). My daughter has inherited my love for flip flops and wanted to make a fun summer gift for her friends so we came up with some super cute and fun Water Balloon Flip Flops! It brings together 2 things everyone loves about summer, flip flops and any kind of water. This project is easy to make and only cost me $2/pair! So it’s an inexpensive summer craft to do with your kids, and I am all about saving some money!

Want to see how easy they are to make? Let’s check it out:
