Color Blocked Wedge Flip Flops DIY

Summer is just around the corner and if you're anything like me, you'll be running around in flip flops  every moment you possibly can!  It's just too hot to wear socks when it's hot outside.  As much as I love flip flops, they keep you the same height God made you......and for me, that's just not very tall.  Fortunately this tutorial will help all the height-challenged-flip-flop-wearers gain an inch or two and still be comfortable.  It's so easy, too!  All you'll need is a little E-6000 to tackle the job.

They look just like a sherbet ice-cream sandwich!
Here's the step-by-step tutorial
3 pairs of flip flops in the exact same size and style
E-6000 glue
Something very heavy to place on top
  1.  Decide how you are going to layer your flip flops
2.  Remove the straps from the 2nd and 3rd pair with scissors 
3.  Using a generous amount of E-6000 glue, adhere the middle flip flop to the underside of the top flip flop with the straps
4.  Glue the bottom flip flop to the underside of the middle flip flop
5.  Place a heavy object on top.  I used a dictionary, but you might want to use something even heavier.
6.  Let them dry overnight and you're done!


  1. What a great idea...easy gift idea too! Thanks!

  2. I remember when they sold the flip flops that thick (or thicker!). Cool idea though.
    What CAN'T E-6000 do?

  3. I actually just did a slightly different version of these for my mom. I made an actual wedge from the middle flip-flops. Layering cheap flip-flops also gives them more stability and makes them better on your feet.
