DIY: Fourth of July Striped Tote

altFourth of July is around the corner and what a way to show your patriotism than with a bold striped bag!  It takes only 5 minutes to make so you could make a few extra for your friends and family you’re celebrating with.

Supplies:

  • Plain canvas bag (about $5 from a craft store)
  • Masking tape or painters tape
  • Red fabric paint
  • Foam brush

 

alt

Carefully stick tape down on the bag where you DON’T want the paint to be. You can make the stripes even but I decided rather than stress about making them all the same I did more of a gradual design with the larger stripes at the bottom

 

alt

Wrap the tape around the corner so you won’t have to worry about getting too much paint on the sides

alt

Carefully paint on the red paint being careful on the sides and top

 

alt

I only needed one coat, when it’s dry, in about an hour’s time, carefully rip off the masking tape

And enjoy your new red striped bag!
