I hope you’re ready because it’s time for another awesome blog hop! I am so excited to bring you this Dollar Store Mother’s Day Craft Challenge! I’ve teamed up with other amazing bloggers for a budget blog hop (kind of my favorite). Each blogger had to create a Mother’s Day craft for less than $10 and they did an amazing job! Make Mother’s Day special on a budget and check out all of the wonderful crafts created! First up are these DIY flip-flops made for only $2.00 ($3 if you have to buy a lei)!

Meet the Hosts
- Pair of Flip-Flops
- Lei (4 Individual Flowers)
- 2 Fabric Brads
- Hot Glue Gun and Glue Sticks (You can totally get these at the dollar store!)
Remove tags from your flip-flops and scarf. If you are starting with a brand new lei, also cut it and remove 4 flowers from it.
Cut your scarf in half.
Align the center of one scarf half with the “thong” part of the flip-flop as pictured above.
Pull the ends of the scarf half over the top of the straps and through the center of the scarf to secure the scarf to the flip-flop.
Take the loose ends of the scarf half and wrap each one respectively around each strap of the flip-flop.
Secure each end of the scarf half to the flip-flop by pulling them through the bottom loop wrapped on each strap.
Cut the excess scarf off of the ends.
Repeat steps 3-7 with your 2nd scarf half and flip-flop.
Assemble your flowers by placing 2 flowers together and placing your fabric brad through. Secure the brad and repeat to make your second flower. (These flowers are made just like the flowers on these invitations and this girl’s purse. All of these project from a couple of leis is well worth the dollars spent!)
Add some hot glue to the back of each flower and attach to the center of each flip-flop.
This is easily one of the cheapest, most beautiful gifts you can make. Get your mom beach ready with a pair of one-of-kind flip-flops. If you already have the other items listed, you can get the flip-flops and the scarf at the dollar store making these only two dollars to make. I love how these turned out so much that I think I am going to go back to the store and get the items to make myself a pair! Before you go, make sure you check out the other awesome Mother’s Day crafts!

I’m a nerdy, crafty mom of three adorable little kids. I love writing and creating, but in my non-existent free time I also love karaoke, taking my kids to the zoo, and reading. I got my degree in Science (no idea how that happened) but I took every English class I could get my hands on because, yeah, I’m that girl.
