If you are a do-it-yourself type, this post is for you! This is a fun and cute idea for gifts for your bridesmaids. I made the first set for one of my brides, and the other three for my daughters.
I purchased the straw bag at Target for $2.50. The hat, flip-flops, ribbon,flowers, and buttons came from Hobby Lobby. Each set required 9 yards of ribbon and a little hot glue. I simply wrapped the flip-flops with strands of ribbon, approx. 2 yards on each shoe. Then, I cut 3″ strips from the different ribbons and tied them together with florist wire, but you can use whatever you choose. It was fun, fast, and easy, once I got the hang of it. Be sure to pull the ribbon taut as you wrap it around the straps and thong part of the shoes.
