Water Balloon Flip Flops

Here is a fun and simple craft (idea courtesy of my mom). There are two examples here of how you can use water balloons to make these cute flip flops - using solid colors or multi colors.

For kid sized flip flops you will need approx. 100-150 water balloons per pair.

For adult sized flip flops you will need approx. 150-200 water balloons per pair.

Now all you do is take your balloon and double knot them around the flip flop. The closer you push the balloons together the more bunchy and full they will be.

You should be able to find about 200 water balloons for around $1.50. Look around if you find them more expensive than that.

Have fun making these for gifts, an activity at birthday parties, church functions or - like us - just for the fun of it!


  1. how do you get the ends of the balloons to become hidden?

  2. u don't want them to be hidden..

  3. which water balloons do you use?
