I started out with a pair of flip flops that I ordered online from Foot Smart. The one thing about ordering shoes is that they don't always look like they do in the photos. This pair of sandals, made with a terrific arch support, fit great but I didn't like the white toe strap. So, I decided, rather than return them, to find something to cover up the toe strap. I tried to think of what I could find in a store. Like an artificial flower maybe? I couldn't find any that would work.
I finally decided that earrings might work. Of course, that meant finding a pair that would fit. So I went to Belk's and I found a pair of drop earrings that looked suitable for hot gluing onto the strap.
Believe it or not, the earrings were a perfect fit for the strap. I cut off the back of the earring. Put a strip of hot glue down the strap and pressed on the earring. To this day, they remain. Plus due to the multi-color earrings, the shoes will go with most any outfit. Ta Da!!
