DIY Watercolour Mug

I love the effect of watercolour, and while I love finding a beautiful cushion, painting or poster with a kaleidoscope of color, I, like Caitlin of The Merrythought, have been trying to come up with a few ways to add a hint of faux watercolour around the house. After seeing her cousin give herself a “watercolour” manicure, Caitlin came up with this extremely effective and easy (not to mention gorgeous!) DIY of a watercolour mug. Read on to see how.

What you need:

• White Ceramic Mug

• Old or Disposable Bowl/Container

• Nail Polish (in colour of your choice)

Instructions

• Fill the bowl with warm water.

• Add a drop of nail polish to the water and let it spread out. You can also use a skewer to swirl the color around a bit to give it the effect you’d like.

• Dip your mug in the water.

• You can use nail polish remover to remove any excess nail polish on the bottom and inside of the mug or sections that got messed up.

• Carefully pat mug dry with paper towel.

• You can repeat with additional colors if you want.

• Once you’ve achieved the look you want, let it sit for at least two hours.

I would recommend hand washing these mugs. Durability will also depend on quality of the nail polish - just as it would on your nails. If you run into problems, try coating the outside with a clear coat of nail polish or a non toxic finishing spray.

What colors would you use? Would you give this a try?

DIY - POM POM SHORTS

As an avid Thrift shopper, I always tend to find the dopest vintage pattern pants, the problem, they are always too short! With Coachella coming up, I wanted to incorporate a fun pattern short into one of my looks, and well, these pants seems perfect for the occasion. Below you will find a quick tutorial on how you can turn any long pant into shorts with an added pom pom trim. 

If you are only looking into revamping old shorts, just skip a few steps and you will be all set. Happy crafting! 

MATERIALS:

  • Pants or Shorts 
  • Scissors
  • Needle/thread
  • Pins
  • Pom pom trim (available at fabric or craft stores)
  • Double Stick Fusible Web 
  • Iron

HOW TO: 

  1. Wear the pants inside out and use a sharpie or fabric pen to mark how short you’d link your shorts to be. 
  2. Take the pants off and draw, then cut a diagonal line, starting from the inseam, about 2″ or more from the crotch, and ending 1/2″ below the mark  straight across. (MAKE SURE YOU LEAVE EXTRA FABRIC ALONG THE LINES) 
  3. Turn the shorts inside out and begin to place double stick fusible tape along the line you drew. (repeat this front and back on each short leg) 
  4. Fold in and pin down your edge to create a clean seam. 
  5. Hot iron the seams down to melt the fusible tape into securing the fabric in place. (repeat this front and back on each short leg) 
  6. Turn the shorts right side out. Pin the pom pom trim on the outside of the leg openings. 
  7. Sew in place, either by hand or with a sewing machine.

So much prettier! Wish I could do this now since it’s smack dab in the middle of our playroom. But, we’re renting, so, going to save it for our next house.
