DIY Spa Flip Flops

Grab a pair of flip flops for $1.00, a washcloth, scissors and your glue gun and get ready to make these cute little spa day sandals in less than 5 minutes.  

DIY Spa Day Sandals from

I came across this idea in Willow and Sage Magazine and had to make them for myself.  I've never had a spa day out but sometimes I do have one at home and I thought these would be the cutest (totally unnecessary) little flip-flops to wear after a nice foot soak.  They'd also make a great little gift if you and your friends are having a spa day together.  You could make this as a group craft or surprise your friends by bringing a pair of these for each of them.  







hot glue

ruler/optional but helpful




Cut 2 of each 


  • 1 inch wide strip down each long side of the washcloth {to glue along the strap of the flip-flops}
  • 2 inch wide strips the length of your washcloth {the body of your bows}
  • 1  inch wide by 2 inch long strips {for the center of your bows}

scissors  Cut 4 

2 inch wide by 2 inch long rectangles cutting notch into bottom {these are the tails of your bow}




spa-day-flip-flops-first-stepGlue the long strips along each strap starting in the center and working outward 'pinching' as necessary to the correct length.
spa-day-flip-flops bow step oneFold each of your wider strips in half with the seam in the center back.  Pinch and glue.  
spa-day-flip-flops bow step twoAdd your ½ inch wide strip to the center of your bow gluing in place in the back.
Add the tails to each side of the bow pinching to create a gather on each side to the center of the bow.

Glue your bows to the center of your sandals.

And there you have it ~ cute little spa sandals to help you feel special on your Spa Day.


I was going to share pictures of these on my feet to show you how cute and sassy they look and I actually did take pictures but when I looked at them I was so darn pale the pastiness (think school glue color legs) was too hideous to share and I didn't have that 'toes pointing inward' pose that every other person who takes a picture of their feet/shoes/socks/legs seems to have conquered.  My feet were just in the cute flip-flops sticking straight out from my legs (which is a good thing, I think?!).
