- Unfinished Wooden Painting Panel
- Chalk Paint (in different colors)
- Paint Brushes
- Hot Glue Gun
- Jute Twine
- Wood Stain (optional)
Step 1. Sand your painting panel, wipe it down once, and then paint with your base color of choice. I wanted a stained-looking board so I mixed some paints together to create the stain color I liked. You can also use actual stain for this step.
Step 3. This is where it gets a bit tricky – you will want to sketch out a pair of flip flops. It may be helpful to look up some images online and practice before sketching it onto your actual painted frame. You can also use a stencil. After sketching, fill it in with your desired paint color and let dry.
Step 6. Finally, trim and decorate. To hide the roughly-finished edges where the stain meets the colored frame, I trimmed it with some more jute twine. I also added a die-cut word using some vinyl and my Silhouette machine. And presto – your DIY summer decor is done!
That’s how easy this DIY summer decor is! While you’re in flip flop mode, we think these cute flip flop earrings would be perfect to craft after this one!
