How was the weekend?
Saturday, the BF and I went to the Greensboro, GA Festival of Trees and Holiday Craft show. His Aunt had a booth of her crafts: holiday arrangements, small Christmas trees and jewelry boards. It was fun looking at all the decorated Christmas tress and getting inspiration for mine. Sunday, Julia and I crafted - stay tuned for those projects; but they have to do with the Christmas Pinterest Party we are hosting in a few weeks :)
I hope its a short week for everyone! I'm just working 2 days this week. On Wednesday, the family and I are visiting my Grandparents to celebrate an early Thanksgiving. And on Thursday we're doing dinner at my parent's house, the BF and his parents will be there!
Remember a few weekends ago when we went wine tasting for my friends Bachelerotte Party? Well, here's the tutorial for the Bridal cardigan I made her:
What you'll need:
Wash & dry your cardigan per the instructions on the label. Create your stencil using our tutorial.
Center the stencil where you want it, I did mine a little lower so that her hair wouldn't cover up the wording. Tape down the stencil so that it doesn't move around on you.
Dab on a light/medium coat of paint. The glitter paint dries much darker than how it goes on, I only did one coat.
Don't rush through the stencil process, you might mess up like me! Part of the "H" stencil came up when I was dabbing on the paint. I went ahead and finished the entire stencil. After I pulled up the stencil I went back with soapy detergent water to touch up the "H". This got most of the paint up, but the next day I went back with a watered-down bleach solution and touched up the area again. Thank goodness it's a white cardigan!
Once the back of the cardigan in done and completely dry, flip it over to add the "Bride", use the same process.
There you have it, a fun & glittery Bridal cardigan!
I love giving a Bride personalized gifts for her special day.
It's fun to have all the attention on you!
Have a great day!
