Adorable? I think so! I have no little girls in my house to make these for so I had to enlist a couple because I could not resist making a couple pairs!
They were quite simple and cheap to make, yet VERY time consuming! Imagine the possibilities! Red, White and Blue for the Fourth?!
Pair of Flops (Old Navy 2/$3 for kids, 2/$5 for adults - 6/23/12 they are on sale for $1!!!)
Water balloons - I used 36 per side (72 per flop)
How I Did It
I attached 36 water balloons to each side strap of each flop starting at the thong, alternating the round and stem ends of the balloons pointing outward in a rainbow pattern. I tripled up on the green balloons for the lime pair to bring out the green. Every once in a while I would get air trapped inside the balloon where it was tied, I remedied this by making a pinhole (with a pin) to release the air. Each pair took me about 40 minutes to make and I got sore fingers!
