Hello The Vintage Apple readers! My name is Julie and I blog about decorating my home, diy projects, and life as a new mama to my 6 month old son Hudson over at The Girl in the Red Shoes. I'm the kind of girl who never has her act together, but manages to find the time to do a fun project here and there in between taking pictures of my my kid's poop explosions and posting them to instagram. (you can find me at girlintheredshoes). I am so excited to share my latest diy project with all of you today! Get excited...it's a good one!
Anyway, tape your stencil to your leggings in a random pattern and lightly blot the paint on using your stencil brush. The key to working with fabric paint is to use it sparingly. I alternated left and right sides of the pants so as not to accidentally smear the paint with the stencil. Because you are using just a little paint, these dry quickly!
I seriously cannot contain my excitement over how cute they turned out! And no, your eyes are not deceiving you...those are pink pants. Don't worry....I haven't gone off the deep end. I may buy my son leggings in the girls department but I would never make him wear pink ones! They are a gift for my best friend's little girl who is turning one soon and are just too cute not to show off!
Hudson LOVES his deer antler leggings. And I do too.
Total cost for the leggings ends up being about $5.30 per pair!
One more photo of my little man rocking his arrow leggings. He is going to be the best-dressed kid at daycare!Make sure to wash the leggings inside out and tumble dry on low. Super easy right? Now I'm on a mission to make more leggings...any suggestions for a new stencil pattern?
