One of our “newest” designers has been a quick study of all things Show Me Decorating!

Remember the Show Me Decorating steps:

1.Pick a theme: Holiday (Christmas, Easter, Madigras) or Celebration (Graduation, baby shower, wedding)

2.Choose a color story, this allows you to narrow your choices and focus

3.Gather your materials, look around your house and repurpose everyday items (all red dishes for Valentines day, pastel containers or baskets for Easter)

4. Pick a focal spot, an area where everyone will enjoy (top of a buffet, shelf in a bookcase, fireplace mantel, entry table)

5. Create a welcome doorway and offer a great 1st impression

Show Me Some Flip Flops & Flamingos!

What says Summertime better than Flip Flops ? (or thongs like we used to call them! Ha!)

I was ready to change to an all out Summer Time wreath. So while perusing the isles @hobbylobbystore, I spied flip flops in every color and they were on sale!

Flip Flop sale!

So I chose pairs in different sizes and colors for interest and variety. Next I purchased a plain grapevine ($5.99 a great inexpensive base) and decided to spray paint it a bright green. (This color would pop off my dark brown door)

Grapevine and spray paint

Tip: When spray painting objects it is best outdoors, and using an empty box allows the paint to have better coverage.

We like to use indoor/outdoor spray paint

Tip: A gloss fast drying spray paint works great!

Now gather all your materials

What goes better with Flip Flops than Flamingoes? Flamingos were purchased from Wally’s Party Store for about $15. When making a wreath I like to have variety of colors, patterns and sizes. I also have my stash of ribbon in a clear tub marked ‘Ribbon’ for easy access.

Tip to Recycle:

I recycle or reuse all those little or big pieces of ribbon, bows and trim from packages, gift bags etc. This is a great project to use up all those saved pieces!

Pink Bow is wired to left side of wreath

I tied a bow out of left over Christmas Ribbon from Rebecca’s tree and added a black and white polka dot ribbon tied across the middle.

Tip: If you need to know how to tie a bow you can learn how with our Show Me App for iPhone & iPad!

Back of flip flop with wire attached

Next I prepped all my flip flop pairs by attaching wire onto the back wrapped around the middle tab. This allowed me to wire the flip flops onto the wreath.

Flamingo with pipe cleaner legs

Brown pipe cleaner hot glued into leg holes.

Pair of flamingos attached

I placed one flamingo in the middle of the wreath and wired on with the pipecleaner legs (this won’t show after ribbon and flip flops are added. The other flamingo was attached with thin wire around the neck and one of the legs under the body.

I like to work with three focal points on wreaths:

One: The bow

Two & Three: The flamingos

The flip flops and ribbon will  be our supporting stars!

More flip flops wired on!

Dress up flip flops with ribbon tied on

Add assorted ribbon pieces tied on to grapevine

The More ribbon the merrier! I added a green bow (still tied from a package) to the neck on the flamingo to hide the wire. I let longer lengths of ribbon hang from the bottom of the wreath. Have fun mixing and matching with the ribbon, loop it through the grapevine and tie.

Summer is Welcome

Show Me some flip flops and flamingos and I will Show You a fun summer time wreath!
