$2.00 DIY Hand Painted Craft Apron with Slots

$2.00 DIY Hand Painted Craft Apron

Hi Everyone,

I don’t know about you but every time I am creating a craft or DIY Project, I always end up losing my scissors or my glue sticks or something else I need in order to complete my projects.  You would be surprised at the odd places I have misplaced my crafting supplies. One time I found a pair of scissors in the ice box. Lol. Don’t ask me how they got in there.
One Day, I was shopping at my local home depot and spotted a canvas tool belt apron for $1.50. Immediately I was inspired to transform, this rather boring apron into a beautiful, useful, DIY Craft Apron. Here what I come up with.

Here’s what you need in order to create your mine DIY Craft Apron:
A home depot tool apron
Acrylic paints
Paint brushes (I used a foam brush because I like to swirl my paint designs)
Hot glue gun/ Glue sticks

1)      Paint your apron (Front and Back) with Acrylic paints. Check out the video below to see the painting technique I used to create this pattern.  Allow apron to dry fully.

2)      To set your design, iron the apron on both sides. I used the highest heat setting.
   3)      To create diy ribbon slots for your craft supplies, cut a piece of ribbon about 3 inches. Glue the very tip (or end) of the ribbon to your apron. Repeat with the other end. Make as many slots/or holders your need for your apron.

4)      Add your crafting supplies to your beautiful diy craft apron. 
Use and enjoy!

Thanks for spending some time with me.
