Hand Painted Apron DIY

Time: 1 hour
Materials: fabric paint, plain apron, brush

Hand Painted Apron DIYYou might have noticed me working on this project on Instagram over the weekend, and let me tell you, it was the easiest diy ever! For all of those who made the resolution to cook more, what better way to convenience yourself to get in the kitchen than with a hand painted apron?

Hand Painted Apron DIYPaint your design on to your fabric and let dry. Easy as that! The paint I used didn’t even require a heat set (be sure to check your instructions though!). If you’re short on time, consider making your pattern larger, like oversized polka dots or triangles.

    I’ll never tire of this pattern, and this color scheme <3 Really really cute, Rachel. There was a time I struggled to find a cute apron and it never occurred to me to paint my own pattern- LOVE.
