Time for another DIY! This time I’m going to be showing you how to do a really simple fashion DIY. I have to admit the idea of painting a skirt was a little daunting at first but the metallic rose chrome color came out gorgeous. Easy to do, with absolutely no mess.
I purchased all my supplies once again from Michaels. What does that store not have? Here’s what you’ll need. Find a plain pleated skirt you love. I bought mine at Forever21. Purchase a metallic fabric paint- I picked up ‘Rose Chrome’ from the Martha Stewart collection. The only other supplies you will need is a fabric paint brush and a roll of duct tape.
Place a strip of duct tape across one side of the skirt, where you want the paint to stop. Start painting the bottom of the skirt making a line close to the duct tape first so that you don’t make any mistakes. You can see from the picture below with the duct tape, you’ll need more than 1 coat of paint. That is with 2 coats, so don’t worry if the color isn’t looking solid. Allow to dry overnight and the next day add the third and final coat. And you’re finished!
I hope you love it and keep a lookout for more DIYs in the next couple of weeks.
