Color Block Tote

 

Hey crafty friends!  I just adore DecoArt’s Americana Chalky Finish Paint.  By adore, I mean I am willing to paint just about anything with it.  Today I am going to share how I even used it on fabric with this DIY Color Block Tote!

I have used Chalky Finish Paint on many projects in my home, but I had not tried it yet on fabric.  This was the perfect time to give it go.  I love the color block trend that has come around again, so I decided to make a few color block tote bags for a little goody bag for my oldest daughter’s birthday party.

I picked up a few white tote bags from the craft store and gathered some Chalky Finish paint and painter’s tape.  I love a project that only involves a few supplies, don’t you?

Next, I taped off each of the tote bags with the painter’s tape.  On a few, I used the lines of the handles and taped it off vertically.  On the others, I taped off a horizontal line around the bottom of the tote bag.  Time to paint… it only took one coat for perfect coverage.  That was amazing for me considering I had to make nine!

I love how they turned out and they were just so incredibly easy.

I used so many fun colors, but I also personalized the bags with a monogrammed bag tag.

These bags are the perfect gift for any occasion and are so simple to make.  They have an upscale coastal vibe that you can copy for a fraction of the cost of the boutique.  Have fun y’all!
