hello diy / polka dot paper:

March 21, 2012

This week's DIY has lots of practical uses! It's really simple and almost doesn't need a whole picture tutorial but I decided to share it with you anyway. You know I'm all about quick & easy DIY projects ;)

Supplies:

Scissors
Gold Spray Paint (from home depot)
Roll of Kraft Paper (mine is shipping paper from office max)
Circle outline (I used an embroidery hoop)
Paper

Draw, cut, and spray!
These steps don't really need to be shown but you get the idea ;) The paper I was using was too thin so I got out a usps shipping mailer and used that as the circle template.

This works best if you have a nice open space to roll out the paper.

Be careful with the wet paint, I got it on my shoe ;)

Simple + easy, done in about 10 minutes.
Here are some ways I used my polka dot paper:

To decorate my tradeshow booth.

Works great for a background.

Also wrapped a present for my mom with it ;)

Hope you enjoyed this little DIY. Happy crafting friends.

  12. Danni, I love this! There's a pin floating around of some super-pricey wallpaper, but this looks just like it! ;) I also actually kind of like the gold paint on your shoe -- I say paint the other shoe too. xoxo

  21. Crazy about this idea! Am a bit intimidated by spray paint, though. So maybe i'll try patting on the paint inside the holes with a sponge?
