Mother's Day is just around the corner - and I bet your mom would love a relaxing day at the beach right now! Since we can't go to the beach we are going to bring a little bit of the beach to us by creating a fun pair of beach sandals. You can do this craft with mom for some family fun, or on your own and surprise her with a new pair of sandals when you're done!
Helpful items: one pair of foam flip-flops, ribbon in as many widths, colors, and patterns as you can find: solid, printed, sheer, opaque,shiny, matte, etc.
Class will take place using Zoom. Registered students will receive a link approximately 24 hours before the class.
