DIY Flip Flop Sign

Create your own personalized flip flop sign with this easy do-it-yourself project. Start by gathering materials such as a wooden board, paint, paintbrushes, and of course, a pair of flip flops. Begin by painting the wooden board in your desired color and allowing it to dry completely. Next, attach the flip flops to the board using nails or strong adhesive, making sure they are secure. Once the flip flops are in place, you can add any additional decorations or wording to the sign to make it unique to your style. This fun and creative project is a great way to add a touch of summer to your home decor. Hang your DIY flip flop sign on a wall or door to bring a beachy vibe to any room. You can even customize the sign further by painting designs on the flip flops or adding embellishments like seashells or beads. Let your imagination run wild and create a one-of-a-kind piece that will surely be a conversation starter in your home.

Supplies Needed:

  • Flip Flops (one for each letter)
  • Fake Flowers
  • Fake Butterflies
  • Gardening Shears
  • Letters – Used Embroidered 3” Self Adhesive (but could use any or simply paint the letters on)
  • Wooden Yardstick
  • Scissors
  • Hot Glue Gun and Glue Sticks
  • Ribbon – 36” length


The first thing you need to do is layout the flip flops on the table or your work surface. Then measure how much of the yardstick you need.

You want it to be long enough so that it spans the entire length across all the flip flops you will be using. Cut off the excess unneeded amount with gardening shears.

Next, hot glue the yardstick in place to the back of the flip flops. You want to glue it just below the thong button.

Cut a piece of ribbon that is long enough to tie to each side to create a hanger to hand the sign from.

Next, to turn it over so you can attach the decorations. Pull the heads off a few of the fake flowers. Used four on this one.

Attach to the center of the flip flops you want to add them to. We did the first, second, third and fifth flip flop strap.

Then glue a butterfly to the center of the other flip flop.

The last step is to position the letters on the flip flops. This one spells out the word HELLO on the heel part of the flip flop.

Peel the backing paper off of the letters and attach letters to flip flops. Or you could also paint letters on or even use a permanent marker to write them on.

That is it! You now have a cute summer flip flop sign to hang on your door or wall.
