Fancy Slippers Tutorial

I'm supposed to be cleaning the house.  {ugh}
We're having a group of teenagers over tonight for a youth meeting. 
Very fun.
To do something different for them, we're having a little bonfire with hotdogs and smores.  
I felt that wonderful twinge of inspiration this morning, 
so I squeezed in a quick "Do With What You Got Project".  
I saw some adorable flip-flops on line today.  
Price tag was $25.00 plus shipping = nope
I started thinking about my old flip flops picked up from Wal-Mart 
for around $3 
(I think that's how much I paid...
seriously, it's been a long time since I graced the aisles 
at good ol' Wallie World)
I already had these beads left over from making necklaces.

To finish it off, I tied a knot several times and
 tucked the end back through several beads, then trimmed.
Note: I did put a dab of glue under the big beads to keep them in place.

I'll spare you the pictures of my funny looking' feet {grimace}
