Coffee Candles

I LOVE this one!

The smell of coffee brewing is one of my favorite scents in the whole world. Obviously, I can’t brew coffee constantly so, this is my replacement. It doesn’t take much time at all and costed me less than $10.

Things You Will Need:
Coffee
Tealight candles
Candle Holders

*Get the best smelling coffee beans you can find. Get the whole beans, not the ground coffee.
*You can buy Tealight candles and holders at the Dollar Store.

Step 1:

Evenly fill each holder with the coffee beans.

Step 2:

Place your Tealights into the coffee but make sure the silver part is covered.

Step 3:

Light the candles.

You’ve got yourself a great coffee-smelling home 🙂

Happy crafting!

DIY Dressed-Up Flip Flops

 

I love flip flops. I wear them all the time. I will wear them until it snows and my feet are too cold for me to walk. So, it is only natural that I would try to dress up my flip flops at some point. I have done something like this once before as a Make Something Mondays but I like this version better. By the way, ignore the dried glue on my sandal straps… I had attempted some crafty thing with them a few months ago and it didn’t work out the way I wanted it to so the glue is still there. This worked out better and makes them look pretty!

 

Things You Will Need:
Ribbon
Hot-melt glue and gun
Flip flops (Old Navy in my case)

*Note: use a ribbon that has a simple and consistent pattern.

 

 

Step 1:

Glue your ribbon to the underside of one of your straps near the foot of the flip flop.

 

 

Step 2:

Begin wrapping the ribbon up the strap. Make sure you glue it every few times it wraps around the bottom to keep it secure.

 

 

Step 3:

When you get to the front of the sandal where the right and left straps meet you want to be very conscious of your placement. Add some hot-melt glue and wrap as close as possible to the dividing line between the two straps.

 

 

Step 4:

When you are as close as possible to the dividing line, pull the ribbon under the strap you have no wrapped yet. Twist it so the bottom of the ribbon is facing upwards and begin wrapping again. Make sure the first wrap around of the unused strap is as close to the divider as possible. Continue wrapping (and gluing) until you get to the end of the strap.

 

 

Step 5:

When you reach the end of the strap, add some hot-melt glue and cut the excess ribbon off. Make sure you cut the ribbon so that it is facing the bottom of the strap. This way it is less likely to come undone.

 

 

Voila! A cute new (cheap) pair of flip flops! I love them <3
