DIY Brides.. I need opinions

So I stumbled across this site that sells flip flops with rhinestones..and they have the nerve to sell them for $80!!!! Would you mind taking a look at the website & lettting me know if this is a possible DIY? I can get the flip flops from Old Navy but will the rhinestones cost a lot of money? What type of adhesive would you use? I was thinking a glue gun or crazy glue.

thx

flip flops

Re: DIY Brides.. I need opinions

I have never tried this DIY project before but I do not see why you can't make them. You can buy the rhinestones at Michael's and adhere them to the flip flops from Old Navy. I would use a glue gun but I would get either the low temp or I think they even make one that doesn't get hot at all because I would think that the 'hot' glue might melt the thong part a little. But I definitely think you could make them. Post pictures if you do them.

It looks like it could be a very easy DIY, i would use a low temp glue gun. Post pics if you do it.

Re: DIY Brides.. I need opinions

It looks easy. I would just think it would be very time consuming depending on how many you have to make.

Re: DIY Brides.. I need opinions

Just don't use the hot glue gun while you've got the flip flops on!

Re: DIY Brides.. I need opinions

I definetly think that it is something that you could do your self. I would get the flip flops from either old navy or target and the rhinestones from Michaels and you'll be set. Post pictures if you make them.

Re: DIY Brides.. I need opinions

It's a DIY for sure. Have you looked at Payless, Avon or just around your neighborhood.

Do a search online for flip flops,, but you could just use tacky glue & rhinestones from a craft store.

Have fun trying them out and if I find something I'll post it for you.

Re: DIY Brides.. I need opinions

I found these on Avon's website for 12.99 -
I didn't resize the pic, but this is cheaper than $80.
