I've been a little M.I.A. lately, haven't I?
It's been a while since I've shown a DIY and I worked on something this weekend I want to share with you! I try not to rush DIY ideas. It's better if they just come to me, so sometimes I have to have a little patience.
I love lace, but I don't use it much around my house because it's a little too antique-y looking for my style. This weekend I used some lace fabric as a stencil on a garden pot and it turned out quite cute! It seems that aside from the regular terra cotta garden pots, pots can get pricey, so this is a good way to dress up a plain $2 terra cotta one.
Here's what you'll need:
Pot (New or old. I bought new and spray painted it taupe to start.)
Lace fabric (Pick something out with a pattern you like! You're going to get spray paint on it, so buy something inexpensive).
Spray Paint (I used white.)
Wrap your pot tight in lace fabric. Use painter's tape to hold down the bottom and inside. I used safety pins to hold the seam of the lace together. If you use tape, you'll end up having a line down the side.
Time for spray paint! Be sure to do light coats. If you do it too heavy, the paint will run and ruin the lace effect.
Once paint has dried and you have an even coat(s), pull off the fabric...
Pretty cute, huh?
You can take this idea even further and use the lace print on furniture or even walls!
Have you noticed that spray paint is one of my favorite mediums?
