Flip Flop XL Wood Shape
July 28, 2020
Hi friends...hope this finds everyone doing well! During the summer, I always look forward to being able to wear flip flops! Today, I'm sharing the Flip Flop XL Wood Shape which I used to create a cute, summery door hanging. And I'm going to show you the techniques I used to create my project!
The Flip Flops measure 16.75 x 20 inches so I decided to use spray paint to color my pieces. I used a light blue chalk paint for the base and black for the "thongs". I found it was best to do two light coats allowing each to dry in between
I used sand paper to smooth any edges of paint that may have accumulated. I also gave the edges a distressed look by sanding off some of the paint.
Using black vinyl, I cut a cute saying on my Silhouette and applied transfer tape to each word so I could space my sentiment out to fit the shape. I used a rub on tool to ensure my vinyl adhered to the wood.
Usually I would use a solvent based adhesive such as Beacon when adhering wood pieces together. However since the thong cut out is rather large, I used my hot glue gun to adhere it to the base.
Here is a close up of my sentiment! I love how it turned out!
Again using my Silhouette, I cut 3D flowers from patterned paper and adhered around my sentiment.
