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!
