Instructions

  1. Begin making DIY Flip-Flops with Balloons at one sandal strap base. Using square knots, tie five orange water balloons in a row, as close together as possible and with ends all facing up.
  2. For the stripe effect, continue by tying on, in the same way, three contrasting balloons, in a mix of yellow and white.
  3. Repeat pattern of five orange and three contrast throughout, making sure to end with five orange balloons.

EDITOR’S NOTES:

  1. Be sure to use small water balloons—regular balloons are too large and floppy.
  2. Children younger than 9 should make these only under adult supervision; they can suffocate on uninflated or torn balloons. Discard any torn balloons at once.
