June 30, 2018


Well, almost, but this Flip Flop Freedom sign can be made in under 30 minutes, with Joy® embroidered iron-on Letters.  So, even if you've waited until the last minute, greeting your guests for the Fourth of July is handled!

You will need:

  • Joy® embroidered, iron-on 3" Varsity Letters - Red F & R; Blue E E D O M
  • Stars & Stripes adult flip flops - 3 pr red & white stripes; one pair blue & white stars
  • Silk Flowers - Daisies (6)
  • Butterfly - Blue 
  • Hot Glue Gun and glue sticks
  • Wooden Yard Stick
  • Saw and Miter Box
  • Wire Cutters
  • 36" Lace or Ribbon - White 
  • Instructions: 1. Cut wooden yardstick down to 24" with a saw and miter box.  Place 2 blue "stars" flip flops and 5 red "stripes" flip flops across the yardstick, then hot glue each flip flop in place.

    2. Cut (or pull) 6 flower heads from the stems and hot glue one to the thong on 6 of the flip -flops.  Hot glue the butterfly to the 7th flip-flop thong.

    3. Peel the liner paper from the back of each embroidered letter.  Attach a red F and R to the blue flip flops and blue E E D O M to the red flip flops.  The varsity style letters are self-adhesive, so you can simply peel and stick! No need to iron onto this surface.

    4. Turn sign over on the work surface and then attach the lace hanger to the second and sixth flip flop button with a simple knot as shown below.

    Hang on your door, porch, patio, gate,or garden fence and ENJOY! I love how this looks like a flag with the stars and stripes! This project is so easy, the kiddos can help you too!

    Joy® iron-on, embroidered letters and numbers are available in a variety of sizes, colors, and fonts at your local craft stores.
