This is what I have came up with for a colorful summer..
I spend way too much time on Pinterest, as I'm sure many of you do...anyway I saw this great wreath that screamed Summertime!! And since I had made a quilt in the same theme for my granddaughter, decided she needed this wreath for her room! So here's my Flip Flop Wreath:
I added a purple bow, since Purple is her favorite color.. I covered a stryofoam wreath shape in light purple grosgrain ribbon, thinking that would be easier to adhere the flip flops too since so many glues say not to use on stryofoam.. still hard to find an adhesive that would hold the shoes on. I picked the shoes from the children's section so they had that youthful feel, and she loves the Peace Signs. I added some clip on bling to a couple of them.. Now let me show you the quilt, and now that she has her own room, I think it's a great set!!

I used fat quarters to get a variety of fabrics and traced one of her flip flops for the patterns. I appliqued them onto white 12 x 12 squares, added matching borders and put them all together. We added cute buttons to the toe straps, some with the same theme as the fabric. So cute! It's not award winning sewing, but she loved it and I loved making it for her! Now to take the wreath off my door and hang in her bedroom window for a summertime feeling there every day!
Don’t forget to keep an eye out for some blog candy offered throughout the hop. Our host is giving away this awesome prize!
