We are always looking for some fun outdoor decorations out by our pool. So I couldn’t resist making a flip flops wreath, I could hardly wait to get to the dollar store!

Flip Flop Wreath - an easy dollar store DIY project


This project is perfect for the craft-challenged, like me! If you can use a glue gun, you can do it! Trust me, you can use a glue gun – if I can do it, anyone can!!!

We used a dollar store pool noodle for the base of the wreath. If I was to make it again, I would probably fork over the extra dollar or two and use a circle wreath base. You can find them made of styrofoam or wood and I think either of those would work just fine!

How to make a Flip Flop Wreath!

Here is what you need:

  • Pool noodle or something other to affix the flip flops to (here are some great other options to the pool noodle)
  • Duck tape
  • Glue gun
  • Flip flops – I used about 12 pairs
    • 5 printed pairs in the largest size available
    • 5 plain pairs in a smaller size
    • 2 toddler sized pairs

Here is what you do:

  • Duck tape the pool noodle in a circle and cut it in half or if you have an already circular base, even better! You can skip this step!
  • Arrange and lay out the flip flops on top of the pool noodle
  • Glue gun the flip flops to the noodle
  • Let dry completely
