OK sally it's an illusion that the flip flop is holding the mug and the bottom dose curl up to hug the mug.  I drilled a hole in the mug with a glass drilling bit from Home depot about 1/2 to 3/4 inch down the other side of the mug and put about a 2 inch drywall screw through it holding the whole thing to the wall.

Jon, this looks so fun to try but I'm having trouble getting cups to sit so nicely as yours- did you use very large flip flops? I bought size 8-9      could you give more details? thanks

how many do you want and any color scheme or plan.

I don't have anyone that could do drilling for me so I will check it out further.

Thanks

Diane look a little farther down in this or my pictures. I drilled a hole in the back with a glass drill bit it's not easy but very secure. the other ones I used a electrical zip tie with a screw hole on the handles. both worked great and have kept them up over a year so far.  it only looks like the flip flop is holding it up.  yes also look at my pic's i did it with a flower pot and some small metal watering cans.  As with any pot a light layer of rocks or in this case pebbles makes a catch base for water apart from the dirt this stops rot and soggy bottom in pots.

Could a person not put some stones in the bottom to help with draining?  Do you brace them with anything other than the handle?  Do you glue them?  Could a person use a plant pot or other container.  I love these but I am wondering how they do in windy conditions
