As I mentioned last week, I had some beautiful ladies over for some brunch one weekend, and we crafted our behinds off! In the spirit of brunch, I thought I would make myself a cute little set for the next time I have company.
I love the dolar store, even though things are pretty much never a freakin' dollar, amiright?... Any-whoo, you can get some plain-Jane items and spice-'em up ya know! I found myself some glass mugs, a set of 4 was $4.99, which I thought was a steal. I keep seeing these snazzy glasses, like from Fishs Eddy, and I thought I'd give it a go.
I also like to peruse the sale section of just about every kitchen-ish store, like Sur La Tab. I snatched up some plain-ol navy blue napkins, set of 4 for $10. Again, wanted to snazz 'em a bit. Look at that perfect brunch set!
Alright- I gots to be honest with you, the beautiful image with the waffles and OJ was a second attempt, not everything we do turns out great, and that's ok guys! I don't know about you, but I'm human. I don't know why I thought painters tape, a large hole punch and gold spray paint was a good idea, I just did ok! Gross. Completely gross. They went in the trash
OK- so let's get started. Grab up your glass mugs, cloth napkins, white fabric paint, white paint marker (for glass) and some mini sponge brushes (I picked up a bunch of these, they were 18 cents each- Score!) Disregard that gold paint, you won't need it, I changed my mind
Napkins first / Lay out the napkins on a piece of cardboard, newspaper or something you don't mind getting some paint on, it may bleed though as you stamp. Pour out some fabric paint and get your brush ready!
Start a stampin'! I started in one corner and did a high concentration of dots, and then worked my way diagonally across, putting less and less as I moved my way across.
Continue on al 4 napkins. Allow to dry for 1-2 hours (depending on how thick your paint is) and then iron on the temperature recommended for the fabric you used, this will make the fabric machine washable! Done!
Now the glasses / Just draw some circles with your paint pen! Yup, thats it! These are not dishwasher safe, but you can just redo the circles if they begin to wear off, I'll update this as I was them and let you know if they do!
Did I mention that I have some blue and white striped plates? Look how great! Now you have your own unique, snazzy brunch glasses and napkins for just a few dollars.
Are there any items you have seen in store lately that you want to make yourself?
