Introduction: Mother's Day Decorative Flip Flops
Every summer, my husband's family goes to the beach, so when trying to decide what to give my mother-in-love, I decided I wanted to theme it around the beach. I started with a set of anklets I found at Target and went from there. She loves teal, so I ended up going with a gold and teal theme. Every good beach day needs a good pair of flip-flops, but since I couldn't find what I wanted in the store, I decided to make some!
