Duck Tape Flip Flops

Cheap and stylish flip flops made of a few ordinary materials.

Step 1: Gather the Materials


- duck tape

- string

- cardboard


- Sharpie

- scissors

Step 2: Cutting the Cardboard

- Trace a current flip flop you have with a pen.

- Cut where you traced. (I recommend multiple layers of cardboard for comfort.)

Step 3: Assembly

- Cover the pieces of cardboard complely in your choice of tape.

- Poke holes in the middle top, left, and right.

- Poke the string through the holes and tie it off.

- Cover up the knots with tape on the bottom.

- Cover the string in tape.

Step 4: Enjoy!

Have fun showing off your new duck tape flip flops! I recommend not to walk in water if they aren't completely covered in tape so they don't soak up.
