Happy Summer! Create this quick and easy Dollar Tree Upcycled Flip Flop Welcome Sign in under 30 minutes with supplies from my favorite store! I purchased 4 pairs of colorful flip flops, one bunch of daisies, and 2 butterflies for just under $9.00 – SCORE! The letters, ribbon, and glue were from my craft stash. I love taking traditional items and upcycling them into something totally different and unique.

Here's what you need to make a Sign from Flip Flops:
- Flip Flops – Four Pairs, Dollar Tree
- Silk Daisies – One Bunch, Dollar Tree
- Butterflies – One, Yellow, Dollar Tree
- Ribbon or Lace – Pink (24″ length), Dollar Tree
- Letter Stickers – 3″ tall, WELCOME
- Hot Glue Gun and Glue Sticks
- Yardstick – (available at all home improvement stores)
- Pruning Shears
- Scissors – I love my Fiskars!
Here's how to create a Summer Welcome Sign:
To start the Dollar Tree Upcycled Flip Flop Welcome Sign, arrange seven colorful flip flops on your work surface. Place the largest in the center and the smallest on the ends, in an arch form. Measure and cut the yardstick to fit the width of the seven flip flops. I use my Fiskars Pruning Shears. Then glue each flip flop to the yardstick with a hot glue gun and glue sticks. I found out (the hard way) that low temp glue does not have a strong enough bond.
Pop the daisy flower heads from the bunch and attach one to the top of each thong and a yellow butterfly to the second flip flop, using hot glue. My bunch had six flowers, so that’s why I bought the butterflies! I love how the bright white flowers pop against the brightly colored flip flops and just screams SUMMER!
Spell out the word WELCOME with three-inch tall letter stickers. Peel off the backing and apply white letters to the colorful flip flops. Mine are self-adhesive embroidered letters I had in my stash, so the application is quick and easy, but you can use any type of letter sticker. If you are going to hang this outside in the weather, make sure the letter stickers are waterproof.
To finish the Dollar Tree Upcycled Flip Flop Welcome Sign, turn the sign over and tie a pink ribbon hanger to the second and sixth flip flop (tied to the thong button), securing with a knot. Make the hanger as long or as short as you would like for your front door or gate. I love using traditional materials in unexpected ways. Inexpensive flip flops from Dollar Tree aren’t very comfortable to wear but are cute as can be to create fun summer home decor.
