Flip Flops with Duck Tape® Bows

This post brought to you by Duck® Brand. All opinions are 100% mine.

It’s prom season, people. High schoolers across the country are spray tanning, debating their hairstyles, and crossing their fingers no one will show up in the same dress.

  In preparation for prom, Duck Tape®, contacted me and asked if I wanted to participate in their Stuck at Prom® campaign to create a prom accessory, and I couldn’t turn it down.

I chose to create pretty Duck Tape® bows and attach them to some flip flops. I don’t know about you, but after walking in heels for a couple hours my feet start to hurt, which interferes with shaking my booty on the dance floor. These adorable flip flops are perfect for a young chick to bring to change into instead of going barefoot on the dance floor.

To make these bows you’ll need Duck Tape®, a ruler, and scissors.

Start by cutting a 3 inch piece of Duck Tape® in half. Set them aside.

Next, cut a strip of 18 inches of Duck Tape®.

Fold the strip of Duck Tape® in half (hamburger style– if you know what I mean), leaving about 1/2 inch of tape.

Create a circle by attaching the sticky side of the Duck Tape® to the other side.

Kind of fold the cuff-like shape, in the center start scrunching up the tape with your fingers. Grab a piece of tape from the first step.

Use your strip of tape to secure the center of the bow. Fluff the bow with your fingers or with a pencil.

Tadah! You have a bow!

I used hot glue to attach the bows to some cheap flip flops.
