DIY Flip Flop Holder

diy flip flop holder

Today is freezing, my poor fingers froze when I was pushing the stroller to drop off my siblings. (I will bill my siblings later when they grow up more lol) You may think that the cold is affecting my head to be thinking about flip flops on this very cold winter day but since fixing up my shoe section of my closet, I needed a spot for my flip flop and made this. 

First you will need a box. I used my instant oatmeal  box


You will need cloth, I used a pillow case that I bought from Dollarama for $2.00

Cut the pillow case or cloth. Make sure there is enough fabric to go inside the box.

Mine looks like this. (Take the half that has a no opening)

If you using a pillow case like I am, stick the box inside of the cut pillow case.

and place the extra fabric inside.

Next get some nice designed duct tape.

Duct tape down the extra pieces of fabric inside of the box like this. 
(Perfect so that no sand or a wet flip flop damages the box)

For the outside I used a old belt that I never use.

I wrapped it around the box

To make sure it fit nicely around, I used a safety pin to hold the extra fabric in place.

There you have it.

Now all you have to do is insert your flip flops 

and place it in your closet.

This project was so fun to make. Now I have my flip flops all ready for when I need them for my next trip. I hope you have some time, I would love to hear from you. Leave a comment to say how much you enjoyed my post or even say hi, follow me on Twitter, like my Facebook page or  even subscribe. I will do the same! Have a wonderful creative day!
