Dollar Tree Upcycled Flip Flop Welcome Sign

Sharing is caring!

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.

Upcycle Flip Flops to make a Sign for Summer

Here's what you need to make a Sign from Flip Flops:

Here's how to create a Summer Welcome Sign:

STEP ONE

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.

STEP TWO

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!

STEP THREE

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.

STEP FOUR

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.

  • Could you use popsicle sticks for the back? Could you post a picture of what the back looks like? I’m craft challenged (lol) but would love to make this.

    • Hi Patty – No, I don’t think popsicle sticks would work. You would need one long piece of wood to attach the flip flops to, like a yardstick, old piece of baseboard, or even a paint stir stick. Unfortunately, I no longer have this project, I gave it away to a friend, soI cannot take a photo of the back. Thanks – Beth

  • What part of the flip flops, did you place the yard stick.
    Too me I would see the yard stick, from the front, but I don’t on your wreath.

    Reply
    • Hi Blanche! I made sure to glue the flip-flops very close together at the widest part, so you wouldn’t see the yardstick! Hope this helps!

  • What size flip flops do I need? I noticed you said the biggest one has to be in the middle

    • Hi Chelsey – I selected the flip flops based on the color and then fit them together according to size, BUT I made another one for my Mom ad used all the same size flip flops! Happy crafting! – Beth

  • This is so cute. I recently went to a Dollar Tree about 45 minutes away, and I have to say, I was impressed with their flip flops. I should have grabbed a pair or two, but I was on a mission. Love the way your flip flop sign turned out! So adorable for summer.
