|I didn’t think the beads would stay on the rubber to well so I traced a V shape out of a foam sheet to place onto the strap of the sandal. Cut it out and glued it on using an epoxy type glue.|
|Here you can see the foam is glued onto the strap of the flip flop.
Now on with the beading!
|I literally just spread out some hot glue onto the foam and poured the beads on top of the glue and kind of pressed them down. While trying not to burn myself. I worked in small sections. This is a messy craft so be prepared to pick up beads all over the table. floor and everywhere else.|
|Half way done.|
|Done beading but not gluing.
I used some Modge Podge glue and a paint brush and painted a thick layer over the top of the beads. I didn’t want any of the beads coming off so thought this was the best and easiest way to do that. It will make your beads a little cloudy but not to bad. Let them dry for at least 24 hours before wearing so they have plenty of time to dry.
|Just thought I would let you guys in on a little secret. I take over our dining room table with my projects and stuff.
It’s really bad but this is how I roll.
Have a great weekend!
