Wearable Crafts Week with Rita

Wearable Crafts Week!

Wearable crafts week

Now that the kids are back in school and we finally have a bit of time on our hands, we'll be sharing budget friendly accessories that you can easily whip up and feel great about!   This feature will go on all throughout the week so don't forget to come back for more inspiration:)  

Our first craft up is this scarf.  Now we gotta say, we have an unhealthy obsession with scarves.  They can be worn multiple ways, and the color/style choices are endless.  Plus, it's perfect for dressing up an outfit with minimal effort.  Not that we rely on scarves this much to add color to our outfits...ahem.

 The best part about this craft is that you don't necessarily need to go out and buy a new scarf to make this craft.  You can definitely find something new, but you can also go shopping in your closet for an old scarf;)  Scarf

So here's how we made this...

Spread your scarf down on the table and tape it down (this helps with the stamping process).

Now that you've got the base ready, grab a few of your favorite stamps and some of the Texture Luxe™.  We used the Texture Luxe Gold here, but you can use any of the Texture Luxe mediums!  Pearl would look fantastic here if you tinted it with the Gelatos, and the Texture Luxe Silver would definitely work too.  Once you have your stamps read, dab some of the Texture Luxe Gold onto the stamp with a sponge, and start stamping!

The stamps looked nice but we wanted a little more something so we pulled out the Texture Gems™ and added lots of tiny gold dots.

Here's the end result!  

The fabric was pretty thin so the Texture Luxe and Texture Gems didn't take that much time to dry- maybe 10-15 minute tops!

That's it for today but we'll be sharing more DIY accessories this week so we hope you'll stop by to check it out!

Thank you! It works really nicely because the Texture Luxe and Texture Gems are permanent when dry.
