I love the versatility of having a pair of slides; One minute I’m wearing it like what it actually is and the next I’m rocking it as a cool pair of gladiator sandals.

I’m going to be sharing with you guys how to make gladiator sandals using flip flops. It’s super easy anyone can pull it off.

What you will need

What To Do

First of all you need to make sure your scarf is long enough to go the length of the flip flops and then some to tie it.

  • Divide your scarf into two equal parts for both sides of your flip flops.
  • Fold your scarf so you have a loop on one end and pass it underneath the ropes of your flip flop.

There you have a cool pair of gladiator sandals. This will make for a good wear at the beach with a maxi gown or bum shorts; but can also be incorporated into some other casual outfits which is what I have been doing.
