WAY Way Way cute Fly Swatters.

O.k. so this is my first time posting on Homemaking Honeys, I hope that I do well! Anyways I am into really fast, easy, and quick crafts. If it looks like I can't do it, I don't even try. I saw this fly swatter idea in a magazine and it looked so cute and easy that I just had to try it!!

Here are the supplies you will need:

one sandal (my hubby works at the D.I. so I had him just bring one home for me!)

ribbon (I just used leftovers from other projects

a pencil

a dowel (about 12 inches long)

craft glue

I started by cutting the ribbon and tying knots around the sandal, you could probably skip this step, but I think that it makes it look cuter! Don't forget to burn the edges of your ribbon so it doesn't fray!

Next you are going to take a pencil and make a hole into the bottom of the shoe, mine was about 1/4-1/2 inch deep.

Then you are going to fill the hole with craft glue.

Stick the dowel into the hole and there you have it. Drill a hole at the top and tie it with ribbon so you can hang it up. So "flippin" cute and easy.

Make sure that you don't buy a dowel that is bigger than the sole of you sandal!

OH MY HECK!!! This is adorable. I was thinking too that if you wanted to do a restyle of some old flip flops then the way you tied the ribbon onto it would be such a great idea!! I LOVE IT Thanks so much for sharing Kelly!! ADORABLE!!
