Hi everyone! Shellye here today with a quick DIY headband just in time for the Fourth of July!
For this project I have used a variety of the DIY Paintables and a couple of different mediums.
To color the butterfly on the headband, I used alcohol markers and a blender.
Begin by coloring the entire piece with the lightest color. Use two coats if you'd like for it to be a little darker. A great thing about the alcohol markers is that they cover up any of the glued areas nicely.
Next, add the darker color around the mid-section of the butterfly. Use a blending pen to blend the two colors together.
For the Burlap Sunflowers, I used both a velvet paint (turquoise) and an acrylic paint (red) along with a sponge brush for application. I found that dabbing the paint with the brush worked better to keep the integrity of the burlap. Before drying, I sprinkled each with clear glitter.
I also used the alcohol marker to paint the tips of the plain Baby's Breath Picks.
A length of stretchy ribbon was cut and the pieces glued on with fabric glue.
Now we're ready to sparkle this 4th of July!
Thanks for joining me today!
