Flip Flops

Flip Flop Wreath 2
Flip Flop Wreath

Flip Flop Wreaths
These overlap at the heel, so I poked holes in them and used pipe cleaners to attach the pink ones to a wire wreath and a little bit of hot glue on the bottom to secure them to the wreath to prevent them from moving til I could get the next layer. I then glued the green ones to the pink ones where they overlapped and secure it with another pipe cleaner. They are not going anywhere cause not only are they secured to wreath but they are secured to each other. Flowers hide all the holes and pipe cleaners.
Add some silk flowers and tulle.
You could use sunglasses, summer toys etc
Use your imagination.

Windchimes Dollar Tree Craft How To
Windchimes Captains Wheel Dollar Tree

I would had been willing to pay $1.50 for these had they added INSTRUCTIONS !!

This is how I assembled mine. Paint the wood pieces any way you'd like. They provide 5 pieces of string. Use the longest one and tie it to one end of the ship wheel. String the round disk unto the string below the wheel, knotting the string with several knots to create one big knot below it, to prevent it from sliding down.

Next add the bead below that. I put mine down the string a little to both give it more color and to act as a clapper for the chimes. You can place this directly below the disk to help level the disk. Either way make a large knot below where you place it to prevent it from sliding down. Use 3 of the other strings to tie the chimes onto the disk. Tie the 4th to the top as a hanger. I cut the excess strings off and added a little glue so the strings weren't everywhere.

Complete Craft Kits that are only $1.25

Hint
Use some tape to tape off the end of a string to form a make shift needle when trying to thread string through a hole.
