DIY Bridal Flip Flops

These DIY Bridal Flip Flops are so simple to make, and are perfect for most weddings. Many brides wear long dresses, so their shoes are covered. Even if they choose elegant shoes for the wedding ceremony, many brides opt for more comfortable bridal shoes after the first dance. After all, all that standing and dancing is hard on a girl’s feet! If you’re a bride, you can make flip flops in your bridal colors for your bridesmaids as well, and have them waiting at their seats after the ceremony. They, and their feet, will thank you! If you’re particularly generous (or have a small wedding), you can have baskets of flip-flops in wedding colors available for your guests to wear as they dance late into the evening… and take home as fun wedding favors!

This project is part of a week-long series on fast and easy wedding crafts. I’m co-hosting this week’s Craft Lightning with my friend Angie from The Country Chic Cottage, and our Guest Host Katie from Sweet Rose Studio. Be sure to scroll down to the bottom to check out their fun projects, and all the fast and simple wedding crafts from our friends around the internet!

Bridal Flip Flops

To make these bridal flip flops you’ll need:
Plain Flip Flops
Ribbon in your wedding colors, assorted sizes
Hot Glue

supplies for bridal flip flops


Start by cutting your ribbon into 6″ lengths. You’ll need more depending on how full you want your flip flops to look, and how wide your ribbon is.

cut ribbon pieces

Tie one piece on the strap, near the middle. If needed, add a dab of hot glue to secure the knot.

tie knot

Keep tying more and more ribbons, adding hot glue as needed.

You can add ribbons all the way down each side, or just 2-3 inches. Any on the very ends might get dirty or stepped on, so just 2-3″ is fine.

So pretty, and a great way to show off that bridal pedicure!
