Armed Guards in School ~ WW

It's 5 O'Clock Somewhere!

Yes, I jumped on the Flip Flop Bandwagon!
I usually don't like to follow trends, but these were just too darn cute and brought back the good memories of living in Miami.

I'm on a mission of using what I have to try to thin out supplies, at least some!

I grabbed a green foam wreath base I've had for - oh maybe 5 yrs I'm ashamed to say. But when I saw it at a yard sale for 10 cents, what are ya gonna do?!

I wrapped it in pink ribbon in case the form happened to show through.
It brings to mind the movie "Tangled" but in a different plot twist - like that pun?

I shuffled my flip flops back and forth, placing the matching mates directly across from each other, until I was pleased with the patterns.
3 pairs were hot glued in place for the first row.
Another reason for the ribbon ~ I could use hot glue between the flip flop bottoms and ribbon without worrying it would melt the styrofoam wreath base.

Next the top row of 3 pairs were glued onto the first row. They were glued in the open spaces between the bottom ones ~ to fill in.

Then the fun part ~ embellishing!
I had some sparklies I used to bling them up a bit

I had picked up a couple pairs of sunglasses for Izzy and Brand for the next time they're here...gonna have to replace those!
Added some ribbon too.

Then the thing that had been circling my mind the whole time - 
my "It's 5 O'Clock Somewhere" sign I picked up at Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville in Key West!

Flipped it over and tied a string for hanging.
Real high tech, can't you tell? LOL

And out to the front door it goes!

I love it!
It was easy, fun and cheap!
If I didn't have it,
 it came from the Dollar Tree,
of course!
