Project Details

  • Level:intermediate
  • Time:1 hour

Project Instructions

  • 1
    Let paint and glue dry between applications. Project time does not include drying time for neither the paints nor the glue.
  • 2
    Cut Orange fabric into enough 1 inch strips to wrap around flip-flop straps.
  • 3
    Fold strips in half then stitch around two sides, pull inside out and finish stitching third side to create clean edges all the way around.
  • 4
    Wrap fabric strips around flip-flop straps, adding glue along strip edges as you wrap and overlap strips. Glue ends down onto strips.
  • 5
    Cut thinner strips from Yellow fabric and glue down over the top of Orange strips. Let dry, then repeat with Purple strips, making thinner than Yellow strips and gluing over the top of Yellow strips.
  • 6
    Cut two 2 inch circles from Tangerine felt, then cut out about 10 petal shapes for each circle. Use chalk, if desired, to first draw petal shapes on felt.
  • 7
    Squeeze small puddles of Mandarin Orange and Sunshine Yellow Soft Fabric Paint onto foil. Mix together to create a Light Orange. Brush lines of paint onto each petal, pulling color from the tip of each petal toward the outward edges as shown.
  • 8
    Glue petals around circles, stacking and layering to create two flowers. Hold together with clothespins until dry.
  • 9
    Use tweezers to create a cluster of Yellow crystals in centers of flowers and set in place with heat tool (following instructions on heat tool package). Add Orange crystals randomly to petals and set in place.
  • 10
    Cut thin strips of Orange, Yellow and Purple fabric and glue one end of each strip to backside of felt flowers with other end extending past edge of flowers. Hold fabric strips in place with clothespins until dry.
  • 11
    Glue felt flowers to top centers of flip flop straps and hold in place with clothespins until dry.
