Sometimes you don't need to buy a new skirt, but you need to 'spring' one from the back of your closet to get 'Spring' ready. Today's post is to AcceCELERYze a skirt using hand printing. Hand printing is a fast and easy way to personalize something and this is my third post using vegetables for hand printing (go here or here for my earlier posts). Get Spring/Summer ready with this amazing DIY.
Materials required to Try This DIY:
- Celery bunch attached to the at the base
- Celery stalks
- Fabric Paint( I used Copper and bought it at Michaels)
- Dimensional Fabric Paint ( I used Gold and bought it at Michaels)
- Foam Brush
Instructions to Try This DIY:
- Cut celery bunch all the way through about 3/5 inches up from the base where the stalks are attached. The base of the bunch will be the rose stamp. Set aside the extra celery stalks
- Using the foam brush, apply a thin even coating of copper fabric paint to the celery stamp
- Place a newspaper between the skirt and press the celery stamp onto the skirt,(If you think the stamp rose needs a little more color, reapply paint over the stamped design using a paint).
- If the stamped rose needs a few more “petals” use the extra pieces of celery to
add them where needed. Apply the color to the end of a single celery stalk and
stamp on extra petals
- Using the dimensional fabric paint draw an outline around each petal.
- Repeat the above process to add more roses.
