This pair of flip flops are sunny yellow and Eco-friendly.

They are crocheted from plastic bags! ksenya even shared her pattern for making them.

If making your own flip flops completely from scratch is not for you, then how about these?

These were store bought but SkyyAngel then added cut strips of fleece to make them a little warmer, but still give her the flip flop feel.

Adding something to give a plain black pair of flip flops a burst of color is exactly what Gina At the Disco did with her Old Navy flippers.

Tying on 400 balloons makes for a great pair of conversation starters.

Maybe what you what to create is something more specific in color, design, or custom size? Perhaps making your own tops with sewing machine embroidery could be the way to go.

alvan has some pretty upscale looking flip flops now. And she was kind enough to share how she created them.

If all these wearable flip flop crafts aren’t what you want, what about making a wreath from flip flops?
