Flip Flop Sign Craft

We’ve been having glorious weather here in the UK and been spending a lot of time out in our garden. I realised that the fences are pretty boring to look at and I’ve been adding little touches of decor here and there to cheer things up.

This super cute flip flop sign is one of those decorations that can brighten up a boring old fence or wall – or you could even hang it on the front door instead of a more traditional wreath.

If you’re throwing parties over the summer it would be a cool decoration for a Hawaiian or tropical themed event or even for a pool or beach party!

Materials & Tools Used in This Craft

Full list of materials, and tools, and instructions are found in the printable tutorial card at the end of this post.

I highly recommend reading this post all the way through before starting this project to ensure that you have all the materials and tools required and understand the steps and timings involved.

Most, if not all of the materials to make this sign could be bought on the cheap in either a Dollar Store or Pound Shop, but I’ve included links to Amazon below for your convenience if you need to shop online.
